Renowned for its emollient abilities, coconut oil is often celebrated as a remedy for just about every natural beautifying trick. From smoothing it from head to toe (and don’t forget those rough knees and elbows), coconut oil is both naturally anti-fungal and antibacterial in its uses.
Here are eight luscious DIY uses for virgin coconut oil…
1. For a Close Shave
Sure, you can spend money on an expensive, moisturizing shaving cream at your pharmacy that might give you that close shave you’re looking for. However, chances are that anything store bought will be jam-packed with some pretty heinous chemicals.
Do you really think that absorbing all of those toxins via your legs, underarms, and bikini line is worth that price? Instead opt for a truly clean, natural shave by smoothing coconut oil over your skin. Not only will it provide a sleek, close shave, coconut oil is naturally antimicrobial, which is ideal for preventing infection, it will also moisturize your skin and leave you smelling like fresh-baked coconut cream pie!
