3 Benefits of Using Coconut Soap and Coconut Oil Daily

Coconut Soap and Coconut Oil have many essential health benefits. If you’ve been paying attention to health and diet news for the past few years, you’ve probably heard a lot of talk about the benefits of coconut oil.

Coconut, in general, contains many types of vitamins and minerals. Did you know, though, that coconut soap and coconut oil are both perfect for your skin and practically your entire body? In addition to their amazing moisturizing effects, coconut soap and coconut oil also have numerous other benefits, as well. Let’s take a look at just a few of them.

Coconut, an easy and gentle makeup removal

If you’ve ever tried to take off waterproof mascara with regular facial soap, you know how hard it can be. To avoid raw, red skin and irritated eyelids, just wet your face with warm water, close your eyes, and rub on some coconut soap. Then gently scrub and rinse, and your face will be fresh and clean.

It is best to use a soft cloth or towel with the soap. This may avoid more skin irritation. When drying your face, dab the towel, and gently dry your skin.

Luxurious Bath Time with Coconut

Coconut soap has a warm, welcoming scent, and it feels so smooth and soft as you scrub your skin with it that you’ll feel like you’ve taken a day off to go to the spa, rather than a morning or evening bath or shower. The soap is sometimes infused with lavender, citrus, or other plants.

Coconut soap is an excellent moisturizer for both hair and skin. It lathers well and will leave your skin feeling fresh. Look for soaps without sulfate, and plastic-free.

Shiny Hair with Coconut

This incredible oil contains anti-bacterial properties. Place a dab of coconut oil on your fingertips and run your fingers through your hair for added shine and strength. Your hair will look thicker, shinier, and healthier, all from just a few seconds of combing your fingers through it.

The effect lasts all day, and the more often you do it, the more beautiful your hair will look. And as an added effect, the oil can also help protect colored hair from sun damage. The oil has a tendency to weigh down fine hair. Do use very little oil in your hair as possible.
