My 3 favorite uses for coconut oil

We all have Coconut oil in our pantry but do you know that it can do little wonders for skin as well?

I love eating coconut they are high in dietary fiber, improve digestion, quick energy boost, help prevent obesity, reduce sweet craving and many more. Coconut oil’s main fat is lauric acid, a medium chain fatty acid that positively impacts cholesterol levels. It also contains vitamins E and K, and iron, and has both antimicrobial and antifungal properties (Source: Google)

When I discovered that coconut oil is the healthiest cooking oil since It consist of saturated fats, oil properties are not damaged by heating, I told my mother and she was rolling her eyes and she was like “coconut oil for cooking, what the world has come to” And I realized that I live in Karachi and my mother love to cook in ghee and regular cooking oil but never mind mothers are always right!J

I thought I should share 3 of my favorite uses for coconut oil, so here is my take on that.

Coconut oil work as a great moisturizer .Whenever I am running out of body lotion I use to apply coconut oil on my body and I feel it soothes and nourishes skin well. It also help remove dead skin cells, you can check out my DIY coconut sugar lip scrub here

Hair oil/Mask
Now this is something that I am familiar since my child hood. Coconut oil is an important part of my hair care routine. I use coconut oil twice a week on my scalp and leave it for overnight.

Make up remover
I discovered that coconut oil work as a gentle make up remover and I love the fact lately. It works great for removing eye makeup also .Gently give a massage to all over the face and on lids ,with the help of cotton bud wipe everything.

Do you also love coconut oil?

  1. I love the smell of coconut oil. I used parachute hair oils before I moved to vatika's for my hair. But I guess I'll make a switch.

    1. I love paracute one,doesn't feel heavy or greasy.Vatika didnot work for me,xx

  2. Coconut oil is overlooked when it comes to hair, body and skin care. I also like it for my hair as a rejuvenator and natural volume enhancer. As for it being a moisturizer, I will second that as it leaves skin very soft and smooth to touch after continued, regular use. Thank you for praising this versatile oil that has wonderful properties. :) xo
