Coconut oil your all-purpose beauty product

The winter woes of dry skin, dehydrated hair and cracked lips can certainly make you uncomfortable, but one product can solve all that – coconut oil. This jack-of-all-trades product becomes a necessity during the winter months. Switching from your standard beauty products to coconut oil will not only save you money, but it will help to revitalize and rejuvenate your look.

So, get your beauty regimen in check for those frigid temps! Give coconut oil a try and replace eight products in your bathroom.

Daily Moisturizer
Coconut oil is known to moisturize the skin just as well, if not better, than most lotions. It’s made up of medium-chain fatty acids that enhance the moisture barrier of your skin, further protecting it from dryness.

Eye Makeup Remover
Remove stubborn eye makeup by dabbing coconut oil on a cotton ball. It’s a safe and natural alternative to some of the harsh chemicals found in generic makeup removers.

Deep Conditioner 
Coconut oil contains proteins not found in other hair oils, helping hair retain its natural moisture and make it stronger.

Chapstick
Mix coconut oil with less than a teaspoon of sugar to exfoliate cracked lips.

Frizz Fighter
Forget the sprays and simply tame the frizz with a dime-sized drop of coconut oil.

Wrinkle Cream
Apply under eyes to help prevent wrinkles and hydrate the skin.

Teeth Whitener
Ever try oil pulling? By swishing a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes a day, you’ll have a brighter smile and even improved oral health.

Shaving Cream
Not only can coconut oil replace shaving cream, but it also soothes sensitive skin as an added bonus. Razor burn be gone!
