By now you’ve probably heard about the many benefits of coconut oil.

Another amazing benefit of coconut oil is that it can be used as a natural and inexpensive beauty product to combat everything from dry skin to rashes!

Beauty Fixes with Coconut Oil
1. Exfoliates and soothes dry skin: Mix coconut oil with sugar for a body scrub or lip exfoliator – a natural way to remove dead skin and treat chapped lips. As a moisturizer, coconut oil melts on the skin as soon as you apply it, without leaving any kind of residue. It easily seeps into the skin pores, moisturizing deeply and thoroughly. Apply after a shower for maximum benefits.
2. Use as a shaving cream: A little goes a long way, where you only need around a teaspoon per leg. Lather it on your skin where you can have a shaving cream and moisturizer in one!
3. Use as a makeup remover: Coconut oil is cheaper than cleansing wipes or store-bought makeup remover, it works better (no harsh rubbing), and it smells like a tropical vacation.
