Coconut oil is good for almost anything! It is all natural and smells amazing! Here are 10 Benefits of using coconut oil in your beauty routine:

1. Makeup Remover- Coconut oil can be used as a natural and gentle makeup remover. It will even remove the most resistant waterproof mascara and reduce wrinkles while it's at it!
2. Cuticle cream- Got dry or cracked cuticles? Coconut oil will moisturize and remedy your skin. Apply it right at the base of your nails and it will moisturize and strengthen your cuticles and nails!
3. Scar and Stretch Mark Treatment- Vitamin E and antioxidants in the oil help heal scars and smooth out for a clearer complexion. 
4. Frizz Fighter- Just add a dime size amount to the middle and ends of your hair. The oil will reduce frizz and add natural shine!
5. Teeth Whitening Tooth Paste- Whether you're running out of toothpaste or simply just want to naturally whiten your teeth, you can concoct a natural whitening toothpaste by mixing baking soda and coconut oil. 
6. Deep Conditioner- Add a dime size amount of hot oil to your hair in the shower and let sit for at least an hour. Your hair will go from dry and brittle to super sleek and moisturized! You can also apply it to your roots to soothe itching and stimulate hair growth!
7. Night Cream- Use coconut oil at night to help moisturize while you sleep. The antioxidants are great for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. If you have oily skin you can add a few drops of oil to your moisturizer to maximize moisturizing benefits without adding too much extra oil to your skin. 
8. Leave-in Conditioner- Apply a small amount of oil to wet strands to lock in moisture. 
9. Eye Cream- Coconut oil is great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of buying a separate eye cream, you can use it to conceal under eye bags and lines. 
10. Detox Bath- You can mix epsom salt and coconut oil to make a great detox bath. Epsom salt helps remove toxins and coconut oil helps hydrate and nourish your skin. For an added effect, add your favorite essential oil. My personal favorite is lavender oil!
