Self Care with Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It helps in healthy growth of hair providing them with a shiny complexion. Regular massage of the head with coconut oil ensures that your scalp is free of dandruff, lice, and lice eggs, even if your scalp is dry. Coconut oil is extensively used in the Indian sub-continent for hair care. Most of the people in these countries apply coconut oil on their hair daily after a bath. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair. It is therefore used as hair care oil and used in manufacturing various conditioners, and dandruff relief creams. Coconut oil is normally applied topically for hair care.
Precious Coconut Mask:
Coconut oil is excellent massage oil for the skin as well. It acts as an effective moisturiser on all types of skins including dry skin. The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is comparable to that of mineral oil. Further, unlike mineral oil, there is no chance of having any adverse side effects on the skin with the application of coconut oil. Coconut oil, therefore, is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. It also delays wrinkles and sagging of skin which normally becomes prominent with age. Coconut oil also helps in treating various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections. Therefore coconut oil forms the basic ingredient of various body care products such as soaps, lotions, creams, etc., used for skin care. Coconut oil also helps in preventing premature ageing and degenerative diseases due to its antioxidant properties.
Citrus Coconut Coffee Scrub:
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until everything is combined.
HOW TO USE
Start by working the scrub on your feet in a circular motion and work your way up the body. You may use the scrub on your face depending on your skin’s sensitivity. Let it sit for 10-20 minutes and then rinse. Your skin will be left feeling super smooth and soft. I would recommend doing this in the shower as it will get messy, and on a weekly basis. Overtime you may also see improvements in the quality of your skin and may help with any blemishes that may you have. We usually have left overs, which you can store in a Mason Jar.
