SKINCARE FRIDAY: Coconut oil
There's a few things I won't give up in this life and coconut oil is definitely in my top.
There's a lot of different point of views regarding coconut oil but I'm #TeamCoconutOil all the way.
Once upon a time, I used to go all out with hair dye. The bleach was breaking my hair and literally fried my curl pattern so I stopped colouring it and was forced to be all about TLC. Thanks to coconut oil my texture is back and healthier than ever. Also, my skin became very sensitive and I would get major breakouts on my face and body. I would do the oil cleansing method and bounced right back to my usual smooth skin. Due to its unique fat composition and natural antioxidant, coconut oil is a great natural moisturizer. Since it's summertime, I highly suggest to use it home or in the evening on your skin to avoid cooking under the sun.
I still ask myself how is coconut oil so damn good for skin and hair? It's made miracles to mines and to the women in my family. It's truly unmatched.
I could talk about it for hours so let's jump straight to the pros and cons
Skin and hair moisturizing
Lip moisturizer (or tinted moisturizer, mix it with a lipstick)
Helps with stretch marks
Can replace your shaving cream
Great for homemade beauty recipes (lip scrub, body scrub)
Hair mask (oil treatment to moisturize hair before shampoo or as a leave-in)
Helps heal bruises, burns, bug bites and eczema
Can be a massage oil
Can be used for cooking
Avoid from the sun or you will fry
Don't overdo it
It might not work for you
