Coconut oil is well know for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, which makes it great for de-puffing tired eyes. These under eye treatments are great as you can apply them while you multitask. I love bringing them along while traveling because they don’t take up a lot of room in my purse and they make all the difference on those long flights.
Coconut oil is made-up of saturated fats and medium-chain fatty acids, which helps with repairing and firming your skin. Coconut oil is light enough even for the most delicate skin.
The antioxidant properties of coconut oil are due to the ferulic and p-coumaric acid compounds. I keep a jar of coconut serum in my fridge and it is one of the first things I apply to my face. It instantly wakes me up for the day and makes my face feel incredible. You only need a small amount and the smell is just delightful.
Coconut oil is wonderful for hydrating and repairing the hair shaft. Its lightweight molecular structure allows for easy repairing of hair. When you use it as a leave-in treatments it reduces protein loss in damaged hair. Coconut oil instantly locks in moisture so you will see an increase of shine and smoothness. I am going on my second bottle of the coconut water. It has definitely done wonders for my hair.
And there you have it, my darlings. Coconut oil has definitely become a beauty staple in my beauty routine! I hope you will give some of these products a try.
