Obsessed with coconut oil? Yep, us too. We love cooking with it but did you know it has a myriad of skincare benefits too? Try these genius beauty uses for coconut oil.

1. Shaving oil

Forget those drying shaving creams – coconut oil guarantees a close shave and leaves your skin with a beautiful sheen.

2. Body scrub

Mix coconut oil with brown sugar for a decadent body scrub that will leave your skin soft and supple. Pay close attention to elbows and knees.

3. Homemade lip balm

Nothing protects lips better than coconut oil. Not only is it a fabulous lip balm, but it softens the fine lines around the lips, erasing the years.

4. De-frizz hair

Just a tiny amount of coconut oil rubbed between the palms of your hands and run over your hair will defrizz, condition curls and nourish split ends.

5. Makeup remover

Many makeup removers contain alcohol and are too harsh for sensitive skin. Coconut oil removes all traces of makeup including waterproof mascara, while also conditioning the skin.
