In my quest to save money I have decided to stop buying several beauty products.  Being on a budget can be a little tricky and to be honest I would prefer to save my money for a holiday rather than splash out on what to me is a want rather than a need.  At the same time, I don’t want to stop my beauty regime altogether so I have discovered the wonder that is coconut oil!


Coconut oil has long been proven to provide health benefits as well as skin and hair and uses around the home.  It has just recently become very popular and can now be found on the shelves of major supermarkets.


The oil is extracted from the coconut and is over 80% saturated fat and has an abundance of vitamin E which is why it is so beneficial for your skin and hair.  If you buy virgin coconut oil, then you will be purchasing an oil which has been refined the least and is often considered the best option.

Rather than buying lots of different products I decided to buy just one – a jar of Coconut Oil and use it in my beauty regime.  I must say I am a convert and totally amazed at the results I have been seeing.


beauty uses for coconut oil


So, what have I been using it for I hear you ask!  Well below I have listed what I have used it for:



I take a tiny amount of coconut oil in the palm of my hand and let it melt then rub on my skin in the evening for a rich moisturiser.



Take a small teaspoon of coconut oil in a small bowl and add a few pinches of rock salt.  Rub in to your skin – it makes a great exfoliator – rinse off.


Skin softener:

Rub a small amount of coconut oil on to your elbows and feet – makes rough skin smooth!


Cuticle softener:

Rub a small amount in to your cuticles before going to bed, next day they will be so soft.


Lip salve:

Take a small amount on your finger and rub on your lips – so much better than lip balms plus it smells of coconut – lovely!


Massage oil:

Add a small amount of essential oil to a few teaspoons of coconut oil to make a beautiful massage oil.


After shave lotion:

Coconut oil is great on your skin after shaving to cool it down.  Take a small teaspoon and heat in the palm of your hand then rub around the shaved area.



Coconut oil is a fantastic intense conditioner – rub it in to your dry hair and leave for a few hours.  When you wash out you may need to shampoo several times but I guarantee your scalp will feel so clean and look so healthy.
