5 incredible uses of coconut oil for your skin and body

Do you keep coconut oil in the kitchen? Maybe it's time to change it and store it in the bathroom. Coconut oil may well be a skin and haircare wonder. Find out why.

We tend to use coconut oil in the kitchen, but its cosmetic uses are truly extraordinary. Coconut oil is a multi-tasker that will help you look after your skin, hair, nails, and even teeth.

Here are 5 ways to apply it to your body and enjoy all its benefits

1. 1. Hair

Coconut oil not only strengthens your scalp but also softens and controls frizz

Coconut oil not only strengthens your hair but also softens and controls frizz. If you apply it to the tips, it helps close the cuticle and prevents it from opening.

How to apply it?

There are several ways to use coconut oil, the first one: Wash your hair as usual, dry with a towel, and apply the oil from med-lengths to ends.

Alternatively,  you can heat the oil in the microwave, apply to dry hair, cover with a bathing cap, and leave it on overnight. The next day, wash as usual and you'll see the results.

2. 2. Perfect smile

Coconut oil helps to kill viruses and bacteria in your mouth

A recent study showed that coconut oil helps to kill viruses and bacteria and also works as a natural whitening product. Use it for oil-pulling! In the mornings, place a spoonful of coconut oil into your mouth and swish around for 5-15 minutes. Then spit it out and brush your teeth as usual. 

3. 3. Porcelain skin
