Coconut oil is one of those products that take multi-tasking to the next level. I’ve seen it be used for cooking, hair treatments, moisturising, make up removal and even cleaning!
While I have not had experience with all of those tasks, I have been using coconut oil as a moisturiser for a few months and thought it was time to dedicate a post to the powers of coconut oil.
I started using the oil to combat winter dryness on my face and body and was amazed at the results. Coconut oil is one of those products that promises to do a lot for your appearance and the fact that it’s unbranded means you can pay as much or as little for it.
I was introduced to Neal’s Yard Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and after six months of daily use on my face and body, the pot is only just finishing now!
What I like about Neal’s coconut oil is, it’s solid texture – however be warned in the summer months my oil tended to melt a lot so it’s wise to not use too much. Saying that, only a bit of this definitely goes a long way.
For daily use, I rub the oil between my hands to warm it up then apply to my face, working it in until there’s no trace of the oil anywhere.
This keeps my face moisturised for the whole day and even though in between I’ve been using high-end brands, I always come back to my trusty coconut oil as I know it will never break me out, nourishes my skin and gives my face a smooth base for make up.
