5 Ways to Use Coconut Oil in the Winter

1. Deep Conditioner

Hair can become dry and brittle in the winter due to the cold weather and wind. To restore your hair’s moisture, apply a generous amount of coconut oil to your hair before bed. The vitamin E contained in this oil helps to nourish the hair from the inside out, rebuilding the protein to make it stronger. By using this leave-in conditioner as an overnight mask, you will notice a silky smooth finish with much less frizz in the morning!

2. Makeup Remover

Regular makeup removers can be too harsh on your face during the winter. Instead, apply coconut oil and wipe away the dirt, makeup, and grime without the dryness. The oil will clean and moisturize at the same time, making for a useful oil cleanser. It melts as soon as you begin rubbing it into your skin, removing even the toughest makeup you applied.

3. Exfoliant

Exfoliation is key in the winter to remove the dryness and dead skin cells. Apply coconut oil as a simple face scrub to leave your skin clean and moisturized without the expensive price tag and harsh chemicals. You can also apply this on other parts of your body to keep your skin fresh and extra smooth!

4. Lip Balm

We all love lipstick, but hate that it can leave our lips feeling dry in the colder months. To fix this, mix some pigment with coconut oil and apply it to your lips. You’ll be left with a beautiful color from the lipstick, and amazing moisture from the oil. You can even apply coconut oil as a lip balm without any color to cure chapped lips!

5. Cuticle Cream + Foot Care

There really is no better cuticle treatment than coconut oil. To keep your nails happy and healthy this winter, apply a small amount on your nails and push back your cuticles as usual. The same goes for your toes and feet! For the ultimate pedicure treatment, cover your entire foot in coconut oil, put on cotton socks, and go to sleep. When you wake up, your feet will be softer than ever, with no more cracked heels.
