On this post, I’d be sharing 4 ways you can use coconut oil as a beauty product!
Before I continue, I want to sincerely apologize for leaving the blog for a month, I’m still trying to adjust to working the 9-5, focus on my footwear production and focus on the blog. But I promise, I’ve found a way to balance it all. Thanks for checking in too.

In no particular order, 4 ways to use coconut oil as a beauty product…
Hair : Every naturalista (natural hair ladies ) will tell you that owning a bottle of coconut oil is an essential. It’s one of the many oils we use on our hair to let it breath out and to have its glow too!  You can use coconut oil as a natural way to help your hair grow longer, thicker, and faster. The vitamins and essential fatty acids naturally found in coconut oil nourish the scalp and help to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles without adding any chemicals to your hair!
Moisturizer : I use my own coconut oil mostly for my hair and as a Night Cream for my face. Using it at night is advisable because it keeps your skin hydrating and repairing itself while you sleep. If you’re prone to acne or have very oily skin, try adding a few drops to your normal moisturizer instead to amp up hydration without adding too much extra oil. Using it as a night cream comes with its advantages, like I always have this glow in the morning and my skin stays smooth and hydrated ☺.
Lip balm : Coconut oil can also be used as a lip balm, all you have to do is apply when your lips feel chapped. Everyone is trying to stay away from using chemical filled substances on any part of their bodies and I’m pretty sure the lips isn’t an exception. Plus, coconut oil keeps your lips smooth and soft and kissable too  .
Sunscreen : Coconut oil has a natural SPF of 4-5 which blocks 75% off UV radiation and contains antioxidants that help protect the skin from harmful radiation from the sun. Natural sunscreen! Obviously that low amount of SPF isn’t sufficient for a long day in the sun. Especially when in a country like Nigeria where everywhere is mostly hot and sunny. You can always carry your coconut oil with you and reapply when necessary.
The 4 ways above is mostly how I use my coconut oil as a beauty product, I’d love to know how you use your coconut oil in the comments section.
