We have some wonderful coconut oil recipes for your skin and hair today that are both effective and easy. Soon you will see the results and enjoy compliments wherever you go!
Make a face and body scrub
Facial scrubs clean your skin and soften it to give it a natural glow. Even if you have acne or skin infects, the antibacterial properties of coconut oil helps cure them. Essential fatty acids in the oil lock in the moisture and skin nutrients while cleansing it. Make a natural face and body scrub with this recipe:
You need extra virgin organic coconut oil from Jeeva. Apply all over your body, particularly to your elbows, knees, feet and hands, nails and cuticles and massage in a circular motion for five minutes. Wash it off. Feel the softness of your skin.
For rough skin, mix coconut oil with sugar to make a paste and a few drops of essential oil. You can store this in a bottle and use it.
For variation, mix ¼ cup melted coconut oil with one cup white sugar, one tablespoon shredded coconut, a few drops of lime essential oil and store in a jar.
If you have a weekly beauty regimen, we suggest a face mask to get rid of blackheads, oily skin and acne. Face masks also help detoxify your skin while moisturizing it and making it look fresh. Here’s what you do: Mix one tbsp. of Jeeva organic extra virgin coconut oil with 1 avocado and 1 tsp honey, the juice of half a fresh lemon, and the juice from a 6 inch stem of aloe vera until you get a creamy texture. You can use a blender if you like. You can store this in a jar in your fridge for about a week.
Coconut oil for glossy hair
Coconut oil can keep your hair healthy, shiny and free from split ends. Deep condition your hair by massaging it with organic extra virgin coconut oil every other day.
While the medium chain triglycerides in the oil can strengthen your immune system and promote overall wellbeing, external application of Jeeva Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil can make your skin, nails and hair healthier and beautiful.
