Beauty Hacks On a Budget – Coconut Oil

Do you know what one of the best beauty hacks out there is? It´s coconut oil!

I want to share the best and effective beauty hacks that can save you a lot of money in the long run with using coconut oil. So let´s get into it!

beauty hacks

Make up remover

Yep, this is the best makeup remover you will ever come across.
Apply coconut oil all over where you have your makeup on, and then simply remove it with a damp bamboo cloth. It removes everything beautifully.
Instead of using cotton pads, I recommend investing in bamboo cloths you can easily rewash.

Shaving

The best shaving ´cream´ you can use is coconut oil. I use this to shave everywhere. My entire body will end up super silky and smooth.
Although you should be really careful in the shower, it can get very slippery! Coconut oil also has natural antibacterial properties which also makes it perfect for shaving.

Facial massage

I recently learned all the benefits of facial massages, and have tried to incorporate them whenever I have some extra time. It basically plumps up the skin, reduces fine lines, stimulates the blood flow, and makes you feel really relaxed. I am so obsessed with it!
You can also use it for a full-body massage mixed with your favorite essentials oils.

Hair Mask

Coconut oil is amazing to leave in your hair as a mask as well. With this specific technic used in this post, your hair will look so shiny, strong, and hydrated.

Oil Cleansing

I always use coconut oil to oil cleanse my face before a regular facial cleanser. Since oil removes oil it basically will remove the excess oil and dirt from your pores more effectively.
Since I have oily/combination skin this trick works really well for my skin type. I see a clear difference if I do this or not.

DIY

I love to use coconut oil in my homemade coffee body scrub, sugar lip scrub, and body oil.
I will share my favorite diy´s with you very soon.

Other things

I love to put some oil into my daughter’s bath, and after bath time to moisturize so her skin gets baby smooth.
I also have been oil pulling, used it under my pregnancy with shea butter to prevent stretch marks, and for breastfeeding.

I basically use coconut oil for EVERYTHING except eating. (You can do that too)
You see, you don´t have to buy one product for every step in your beauty regime.
This will save you a lot of money, and it´s super easy and effective.

PRO TIP – You can add in your favorite essential oil to change the smell.
Always make sure to buy organic, non-bleached, and cold-pressed coconut oil for the best quality and results!

I can´t wait to hear what you use coconut oil for! And don´t forget to pin this post for later.

    Great post! I adore coconut oil, I use it to remove heavy duty liquid lipsticks that are too stubborn to come off with anything else! I let it sit on my lips for a bit then it comes off easy!
