Coconut oil is one-stop shop for any problems you ladies may have been experiencing: diet problems, skin problems, weight problems, hair problems, nail problems, boyfriend problems, or general life problems. Yes you read it right, as long as you use it the right way. But for now I’ll be focusing on skincare. For those of you who do not know, coconut oil has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, thanks to its high amount of lauric acid. They are also high in healthy saturated fats, which according to research is linked to reduced heart disease risk. It is also said that it can treat acne, acne scarring, or any form of pigmentation. However, it is debated that it may not be beneficial for excessive oily skin. Okay, that’s more than enough of science. In short, coconut oil is beneficial only if you use the right products and the right way. Here are some of the best coco products that can be extremely beneficial for your skin.
- Suzanne Organics Radiance Oil Cleanser:
This cleanser also works as a gentle exfoliator and a gentle makeup remover. Because it is infused with coconut oil, it doesn’t strip away your natural oils but balances the skin very well with hydration. As a bonus, it is also infused with almond oil, which is rich in vitamin A, vitamin E, zinc, potassium, protein and healthy fatty acids. This ingredient can further help any irritated or aggravated skin. Thus, if you have super dry, flaky, and sensitive skin, this one is for you.
- Suzanne Organics Coconut Lip Balm:
I’m always on the hunt for a moisturizing lip balm because my lips are always dry and chapped. If you’re in the same boat as me, then this is your shore, err, I mean solution. It does not contain any petroleum products nor any chemicals or toxins. It contains only organic ingredients which is really what our chapped lips need, and has this amazing heavenly coconut fragrance. You can apply it under lipstick or even over lipstick for extra hydration.
- Liquid coconut oil by Organic to Green:
If you hate to use too many products for your skincare, this, my friend, is your miracle product. It has multiple uses: makeup remover, cleanser, shaving, moisturizer, hair care, and you can also use it for scrubbing. And it’s non greasy, non-comedogenic and smells great! Organic To Green offers this coconut oil in 6 different recipes with different variety of oils so you can have fun mixing them and customizing your own coconut oil. My personal favorite is Rose Anti-Aging Coco Oil because it helps me with my acne scarring and extra dry skin.
- Anti-pollution Coco Drops by Organic to Green:
These holy drops are perfect light weight moisturizer. They are water based and infused with coconut oil, hence they are non-clogging. They are filled with plant-based ingredients then help combat aging and stress from pollution. Simply use couple of drops before your makeup for a well hydrated base, as well as before your bedtime to get that beauty sleep. These are also offered in six different scents. My personal favorite as Jasmine Coco Drops as they are perfect for moisturizing.
- Moon Black Mask by Organic to Green:
Personally, I am a huge fan of masking. And I highly recommend if you have sensitive, acne prone, dry, oily, or combination skin. If you regularly use makeup, masking can help clear up all your pores and give the essential nutrients to your skin. This charcoal mask is a lifesaver and is suited for most of the skin types. It is made up of activated charcoal, organic coconut powder, pink Himalayan salt, and turmeric. It does a really good job in removing dirt and bacteria, detoxifying the skin, lightening up the pigmentation, and soothing the skin. It’s my favorite thing to do when I’m not wearing makeup.
So, these are your coconut oil infused skincare products that you can feel free to use without worrying about the grease, the smell, or the clogging. You’re welcome!
