Replace These 7 Beauty Products With Coconut Oil To Save Hundreds Each Year

Keeping up on skincare can require a plethora of products, and this can get expensive fast. But what if I told you there was one product that could do it all, and on top of that, it’s natural, antibacterial, and antifungal and costs less than $10? Well it exists —behold the power of coconut oil.

This multipurpose oil has been quite the trend in the culinary world, but it also has uses beyond the kitchen. It’s used in many products, as it’s easy on the skin and extremely versatile. Replacing some of your everyday beauty products with coconut oil is not only a more natural way to cleanse, but it also ends up having a positive impact on your bank account.

If you’re looking to save some money on beauty, consider replacing some of your everyday products with coconut oil, which can serve the following functions.

1. Face Wash

Many people swear by the oil cleansing method, and coconut oil is no exception. Since coconut oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, it makes a great cleanser for your skin. Just rub a little bit of oil on your face and rinse with water, and you might find you have less breakouts and more moisturized skin.

2. Moisturizer
One of the most popular uses for coconut oil is as a moisturizer, as coconut oil is soothing and hydrating. Science even supports this: A study from International Journal of Dermatology found that coconut oil decreased water loss in people who have atopic dermatitis, a type of eczema.

3. Makeup Remover

Using just a spoonful of coconut oil and a cotton ball, you can remove any makeup from your skin, including waterproof mascara. The oil helps to breakdown water-resistant substances, removing them from your skin.
4. Shaving Cream

If you’re looking for a smooth shaving cream that also moisturizes, coconut oil is for you. Since its water resistant, it really stays put on your skin; just warm the coconut oil and rub it on your legs, using it like you would regular shaving cream.

5. Chapstick

Since coconut oil is naturally hydrating, it makes for a great chapstick or lip gloss. It also has a natural shine, making it a pretty option for your lips.

6. Hair Conditioner

Coconut oil can be used as an everyday conditioner, or as a deep conditioner that can be left in the hair overnight. It can help create shine as well as repair split ends. Just rub between your palms and distribute it through your hair, washing it out for a daily conditioner, and leaving it overnight for a deep treatment.

7. Exfoliating Scrub

Make your own exfoliant by mixing 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil with one cup of sugar. It can be used on your face, lips, or full body to help naturally remove dead skin cells at a fraction of the cost.
