One of the Best Beauty Products You'll Ever Own! Read to See What It Is


Today I'm going to share one of my beauty must haves whether it is 98 degrees and sunny or -0 degrees and gloomy as can be. It is coconut oil! A lot of people cook with this oil as a healthy alternative to other oils but some people don't know that this oil can be applied to the hair, the skin, and some people like to even use it on their face. I have super dry skin on my body (not too dry on my face unless it's Winter time) all year round, last Winter I had scaly patches on my arm. I used coconut oil on my body before bed one night, the next morning there was an amazing difference in my skin, recently my Mom had a bad reaction to something touching her skin. She put coconut oil on the spot that was affected and it relieved the discomfort almost immediately, this stuff is amazing no matter what type of skin you have but works wonders for dry skin. I have also heard that this works well for cradle cap too. The best part (at least for me!) is that coconut oil absorbs into the skin quickly without making your skin look and feel greasy, instead it leaves your skin with a healthy glow after it soaks into your skin which takes about 2 or 3 minutes. It may take less time to soak into your skin if it is super dry. I apply coconut oil after a bath or shower, so twice a day. You can apply it less or more depending on your preference, I apply this before I go to sleep and when I wake up my skin feels incredibly soft, it is much different than when I apply lotion before I go to sleep. If you still want the scent of your lotion you can apply your lotion first, let that sit for a few minutes then apply the coconut oil to seal it all in.
Note: Make sure that the oil is absorbed before you put on your clothes or else it might get into your clothes and ruin them.
