A fairly recent addition to our bathroom beauty shelf, coconut oil can now be used in variety ways to boost your beauty routine.
Reputed to work wonders on skin, hair and nails, it is a must for the makeup bag as a neat, natural solution for cleaning makeup brushes effectively.
Do check labels carefully though and opt for unrefined coconut oil, a more natural product that does not undergo any chemical processing.
We love natural beauty products at Bondi Beauty, so take a look at some of the fabulous beauty uses we’ve found for coconut oil.
Super soft skin
A natural moisturiser, coconut oil works to replenish your skin’s natural oils when applied to your face and body.
Bursting with antioxidants, it gives your skin a much-needed boost, hydrating the skin whilst slowing down the aging process.
Also great for treating sensitive areas, such as lips and the delicate skin under eyes, as coconut oil is full of nutrients essential to the growth of healthy skin cells. Massage in gently for soft, supple and glowing skin.
Tame your tresses
Give your hair a real treat, and use coconut oil as an intensive conditioner, working into the dry ends, then leaving them to soak for a couple of hours or overnight where possible.
Rubbing oil into your scalp will help to moisturize dry flaky skin, and boost your skin’s natural defences with its anti-bacterial properties.
Add a gorgeous natural sheen to your hair, and lightly apply as you would a hair serum to boost the shine in your style. Perfect for those who suffer tangles and knots, as coconut oil can smooth and tame the wildest of tresses.
With a busy lifestyle, our hands and nails suffer daily wear and tear, so find time to lavish some attention with a little coconut oil. The anti-fungal properties of coconut oil help to protect nails and cuticles from infection, keeping them beautiful and ready to show off.
Ideal for moisturising dry cuticles and conditioning nails, regularly rubbing in coconut oil will promote stronger healthier nails. Containing important nutrients to help strengthen your nails, coconut oil easily earns its place in your nail care routine.
Clean makeup brushes
If you are looking for a way on how to clean makeup brushes effectively, then coconut oil really does the trick. It is important to clean brushes on a regular basis.
Clean brushes prevent the transfer of any potential bacteria trapped in unclean brushes to your skin and makeup products.
Remove makeup residue and natural skin oils by swirling in a little warmed coconut oil, which will also protect and nourish the bristles whilst effectively cleaning them.
At Bondi Beauty, we love coconut oil for its natural properties and multitude of beauty uses.
Coconut oil is one of those super hard-working products that can really help to simplify your beauty routine.
