We all know the buzz you feel when you find a new beauty product that actually works. Well imagine finding a product that can help with practically every beauty issue out there! The product you are looking for is coconut oil. Organic, virgin coconut oil is a unique all-natural product that boasts amazing health benefits, with the added bonus of being super-hydrating and healing on skin.

Here are Silkwood’s favourite coconut oil beauty tips:

Oil Pulling
 Swishing coconut oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes a day (preferably at the beginning of the day, before you brush your teeth) may help to detoxify your body, cure headaches, whiten teeth, and more.

Under eye Cream Use a dab of coconut oil on under eye bags and fine lines. It’s light enough for the most delicate skin on your face.

Softening Cuticles 
If you wash your hands often or your cuticles just need a little T.L.C., apply coconut oil to your fingers twice a day.

Insect repellant Just mix with a few drops of peppermint oil and apply to skin.

Treating Dry Ends 
Apply a pinch of coconut oil to the ends of your hair to help dry, damaged tips get a huge dose of moisture.

Dandruff Treatment Send moisture right to the roots with a nightly coconut oil treatment. Just apply lightly to roots and massage in, which will also stimulate hair growth.

Coconut oil makes a great base for DIY body scrubs. Mix it with granulated sugar, and apply the concoction for some seriously smooth skin.

Soothing Sniffles
 Whether you have a runny nose or allergies, rub just a bit of coconut oil inside your nostrils for relief.

Moisturising Lips
 Spread coconut oil over your lips before bedtime for hydration that tastes great throughout the night.

Removing Makeup 
If you have trouble getting off that last bit of mascara, use a dab of coconut oil. Just be careful to not get it directly in your eyes.

Protecting Against Razor Burn 
Apply coconut oil before shaving to prevent irritation.

As a Cheekbone Highlighter Simply sweep a small amount of coconut oil on top of makeup.

Boosting Hair Growth 
Apply coconut oil to any areas where hair is sparse (especially in your eyebrows) to promote cell growth.

Relieving Sunburns
 Apply the oil after you’ve overdone it on the sun exposure to soothe your skin.
