If you read my tutorial on how to make your own sea salt spray, you would have seen that the mixture included a jar of coconut oil. I bought the Tiana Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Holland and Barrett for £16.99 and after finding out the variety of ways coconut oil can be used, it was a fantastic buy. I had heard on numerous occasions that coconut oil was a great hydrating treatment for damaged or dry hair but it doesn’t stop there. For just £16.99 you can have one product that can be used from your hair all the way down to your feet. Once you see the following ways to use coconut oil, I’m sure it’ll be the newest addition to your beauty regime. Blue Lingerie

Conditioning Hair Treatment — Rub a small amount of coconut oil into your hair, mainly on the ends so that your root doesn’t become too greasy. Comb through your hair and tie into a bun/plait and leave overnight. Wash out thoroughly the next morning and experience your super, soft hair

Hair Serum — Once you have styled your hair, rub a small amount of coconut oil onto the ends to tame frizz or to stop fly aways.

Eye Make-up Remover — I was a little dubious about this one but it does really work. Simply rub a small amount of coconut oil on your eyelashes to remove any make-up and then rinse off.

Lip Balm — Rub a small amount of coconut oil on your lips for a natural lip balm. Helps relieve dry, chapped lips while giving them a lovely sheen. Smells pretty good too.

Highlighter — Replace your usual and normally expensive highlighter with coconut oil. Use a small amount of coconut oil on the tops of cheekbones to highlight over your make-up as usual.

Body Moisturiser — Immediately after a shower/bath, rub the coconut oil into your skin. Not only will your skin be super soft, you will also smell fantastic.

Facial Moisturiser — Replace your usual moisturiser and apply a small amount of coconut oil on clean skin. You’ll be amazed how great your skin feels.

Cuticle Softener — Rub coconut oil on cuticles to hydrate and strengthen nails.

Dry Foot Treatment — If your feet are dry and cracked but you don’t have time/money for a pedicure, mix some coconut oil with some sea salt and make your own foot scrub. Scrub away dry skin and you’ll have the best smelling feet around.

Soothe Sunburn  — Now I know we don’t get much sun in England however, during the summer months or if you’re a bit of a sunbed user use coconut oil and rub into burnt skin to help soothe and repair your skin.

Stretch Mark Prevention — Apply coconut oil to stretching skin multiple times a day.

Body Scrub -Nothing feels better than a refreshing body scrub but as the average treatment costs around £70 they don’t tend to happen very often so why not make your own. Mix coconut oil and sugar to create a sugar scrub to exfoliate and soften your skin.

Shaving Cream — If you’re like me and never buy shaving cream or even if you do, why not try replacing it with coconut oil. Rub the oil into the area you would like to shave and shave away. You can also use it for a post shave lotion too.

Moisturising Soak — There is nothing better than a lovely soak in the bath after a stressful day. Try adding some coconut oil to a warm bath to soften your skin.

Night Cream — Most night creams can be quite expensive and the bottles are always so small. If you replace your usual cream with coconut oil and apply to the areas wrinkle and crease prone areas. This will lock in moisture and hydrate skin.
