5 Coconut Oil Skin Moisturising Recipes

We women love to look beautiful and feel beautiful. And there is no problem with that. We spend hours and hours taking care of our skin and hair and oils play important role in our skincare routines.

Brimming with minerals and vitamins, Coconut oil, is often termed as “the miracle oil”. Due to the awesome components and small molecular structure, it has great moisturizing, nourishing and healing properties, and it is not only great for your hair, but is equally great for skin.

And thus, since time immemorial, Coconut oil is chosen as a natural and easy option for attaining soft, supple, blemish free and radiant skin.

You can apply coconut oil alone and directly on your body, or else mix with different ingredients and make your own recipe.

A few of my favorite recipes are:-

Coconut oil body butter

Ingredients:-

  • Coconut oil
  • Lemon or lemon essential oil
  • Aloe Vera pulp
  • Vitamin E capsule

Add the coconut oil in a bowl and beat in with a hand blender until it whips into a light, airy consistency. (I prefer refrigerating coconut oil before whipping, it whips easily). Then gradually add the other ingredients and whip again. Transfer the mixture to a jar. Apply whenever you want

Coconut oil moisturiser

Ingredients:-

  • Coconut oil
  • Lemon
  • Honey

Take the ingredients in 3:1:1 ration. Mix them thoroughly and gently massage on your skin, concentrating more on rough areas. Leave it like that for an hour and then lightly wash off with lukewarm water. Don’t use any soap immediately.

Exfoliation

What? You thought moisturization and exfoliation don’t go together?

Try this recipe:-

  • Oatmeal/Sugar
  • curd
  • Coconut oil
  • honey

Mix the ingredients, apply on skin and rub in circular motions. Leave it for 15 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water

Skin Lotion

Ingredients:-

Take the oils in 3:1:1 ratio and mix them. Slightly warm up the oils and stir well. Add glycerine and drops of essential oil.

Cleanser

Ingredients:-

  • Baking soda
  • Coconut oil

My favourite cleanser that removes dirt, makeup and moisturises too. Mix the two ingredients, apply on face and gently rub in circular motions. Take a cotton ball, dip in warm water and wipe off the pack. Finally rinse off with lukewarm water.

Experiment with different ingredients to see which suit you. And don’t forget to let us know how you use coconut oil in your beauty regime.
