Almost everyone loves coconuts - not just because they are tasty and can be eaten in various ways, but also because they provide us with something so unique, healthy and versatile called coconut oil.

Pardon the dramatic use of words, but coconut oil really does deserve some accolades.

Coconut oil contains healthy saturated fats and it remains stable under high temperatures which make it perfect for cooking, especially for people who are very mindful of their cholesterol intake.

Aside from consuming it, coconut oil can do some amazing things to your skin as well. Let's discuss below 3 ways you can use it in your beauty regimen. 
 

1. As a hair moisturizer and softener

Coconut oil works as a hair moisturizer by strengthening it and reducing frizziness while retaining moisture at the same time. It's also great for detangling your hair before or after washing. Coconut oil can also soften coarse hair, making it easier to manage and style.

2. As a body lotion

Coconut oil is quickly absorbed into the skin, and it is non-greasy. Although it can become solid at room temperature, it melts quickly when it comes into contact with your skin. You can apply it on your face and body after bathing. It is light on the skin and gives your body a lovely sheen. Coconut oil can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles under your eyes.

 
3. As an aftershave

Coconut oil can help you combat various skin irritation problems you may experience after shaving. You can use it daily as your shaving cream. Before shaving, apply it on the area to be shaved such as your face, under arms, legs or the bikini area. Then rinse well afterwards and pat dry. Its antibacterial properties also make coconut oil a good natural deodorant.
