When it comes to caring for and enhancing beauty, sometimes the best things to use are natural.
From the oils to nutrients that we can get from natural sources, you would be amazed at the many benefits our hair and skin can get from taking the time to nurture and treat our bodies the natural way.
One of these amazing natural treatments we can definitely benefit from is coconut oil. Details:
You don’t have to have natural hair to have a bottle of coconut oil stored in your skincare/cosmetics counter. Pretty much anyone can gain from this wonder oil. Coconut oil is usually called the cure-all oil – which basically means you need to get yours today!
1. Body lotion
Using coconut oil as a body lotion is something I just started doing, and I honestly love it. Not only does the oil absorb into the skin easily, you can be rest assured that your skin will remain glossy and lush through out the entire day. It is even helping out with some scars from my younger and more reckless days.
Just be sure to shower really well at night, so you don’t have residue that could pick up dirt and excess oils from subsequent days.
