Looking to upgrade your grooming routine? A solid routine will result in better skin, stronger hair and an overall health boost. Coconut Oil is an easy & organic way to simplify this process - it's nearly scentless and can shorten your morning personal care routine significantly by replacing 10+ products.
Check out these 5 ways coconut oil is the ultimate multi-tasker:
1. Reduce Acne & Inflammation
Did you know coconut oil is filled with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties? This means applying it to your face or trouble spots not only helps reduce redness and inflammation but treats the problem deeper to reduce acne and detox skin. A little goes a long way - so dab a bit of coconut oil on any acne or redness before you go to bed and wake up with an even, soothed complexion.
2. Condition & Promote Beard Growth
Coconut Oil's ultra-hydrating properties make it a perfect conditioner for your beard while strengthening hair follicles and promoting growth. When you wash your beard, it swells to absorb water & contracts to dry. This change dries it out, damaging hair follicles to cause breakage. Use coconut oil on your beard between washes to strengthen & protect the hair from absorbing too much water and expanding. Also, the vitamins and essential fatty acids naturally found in coconut oil help to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles, which speeds up growth. It's a win-win!
3. Oil Pulling for Oral Health
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing coconut oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes to strengthen your gums, whiten teeth, reduce sinus infections & sore throats and freshen your breath. The powerful fatty acids in coconut oil pull away bacteria that your toothbrush may miss in crevices and also relieve gum inflammation. Just grab a coconut oil packet, massage in hands to liquify and squeeze it into your mouth. Swish for 5-10 minutes if you're new to it, working your way up to 15 minutes. It becomes a regular habit, especially if you do it while you're showering or reading a good book!
4. Natural Pre-Shave Oil
Pre-shave oils are essential to creating a safe barrier between skin and your razor. It helps your razor glide smoothly on your skin for a cleaner shave while preventing redness and razor bumps.
5. Nourish & Relieve Dry Scalp
If your scalp is dry or you have dandruff, meet your simple solution! Gently massage coconut oil in your hands and apply it to your hair line and all over your scalp, focusing on problem areas. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes and shampoo it out. It will lock in moisture to reduce dandruff and itchy patches while promoting healthier hair growth.
