Coconut oil benefits

Radha Fractionated Coconut OilOn sale $12

While Coconut Oil has it’s own repertoire of amazing healing properties, I prefer to use this oil in ways other than my daily/nightly moisturizer. This is mainly because it’s super easy to get a hold of and usually found in larger quantities and cheaper than most oils. I prefer the fractional version meaning it stays liquid and you can use a pump! Super convenient and way more hygienic than sticking your finger into a jar over and over again. Here’s a list of ways I use my coconut oil…

Makeup remover

Facial Cleanser

Shaving oil

Scalp treatment

Hair mask

Massage oil

Night time deodorant

Feel free to leave any questions you may still have and please let me know if you decide to try out a beauty oil and how it goes!

    I love the idea of beauty oils. They have so many uses! I’m always afraid to use them though…I get pretty bad hormonal acne around my chin, and I’m worried the oils will just make it worse. Is there a specific oil you recommend for my problem? How do you keep your face from looking too oily when using these?

      Hey Lauren! I know it can sometimes feel counter productive to use oils when you are having oil-related issues but I promise you it’s the opposite! I think Jojoba oil would be perfect for you as it’s a super lightweight oil that wont clog your pores. Actually Jojoba will do the opposite, it has the power to go deep into your skin and kill build ups of acne-causing oil. If you are concerned about looking oily I suggest using only in your nighttime skin care routine.

      If your acne is in fact hormonal I would suggest you change up your skin care a week prior to your period. Use a deep cleansing foaming cleanser, clay masks on the areas you usually break out in combination with an acne fighting serum like this one by Mario Basescu-

    What a beautiful website!

    I’m a believe in oils and yes oil on oil creates less oil!

    I use Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil for my face and they are my go-tos! I tried Maracuja Oil, and Coconut oil in the past for my face but they didn’t work for me.

    Rosehip Oil really works on acne scarring!

    However, the coconut oil was great for shaving but it made my bathtub dangerously slippery and I was afraid that it would clog the drain.
