11 Surprising Ways to Use Coconut Oil

coconutoilHave you jumped on the coconut oil beauty trend? If not, pick up a jar at your local grocery store and follow Josie Feria’s tips on how to utilize the oil from head to toe.

  1. Intensive treatment for dry hair: work into wet hair, cover with a shower cap and leave on for up to 30 minutes; rinse and shampoo as usual
  2. Stimulate hair growth: massage into scalp
  3. Fight frizz: use a small amount in your hair for instant control
  4. Face: use as makeup remover, including eyes
  5. Lips: use in place of lip balm
  6. Cuticles: massage into cuticles to eliminate dryness and stimulate nail growth
  7. Body moisturizer: use as you would a normal body lotion for overall treatment, focusing especially on dry elbows
  8. Body scrub: mix with sea or rock salt and exfoliate (mix with sugar for sensitive skin)
  9. Prevent stretch marks: apply to skin daily to avoid scarring during pregnancy
  10. Soothing balm: apply to skin irritated by poison ivy, oak or sumac
  11. Feet: rub on feet to hydrate and condition skin; fights athlete’s foot and low level fungus
