6 Hacks Of Coconut Oil | Preity Prerna


Coconut oil is a staple of many kitchens. It is praised for its health benefits - coconut oil contains antimicrobial properties and antioxidants.


Coconut oil may have advantages such as boosting good cholesterol, regulating blood sugar, lowering stress, and more.


However, more study is required to determine the consequences of routine coconut oil use.


Also, in warm climates, throughout the summer, or if you tend to be perpetually overheated, coconut oil is perfect for self-massage due to its cooling properties.


You might have heard about the magical benefits of coconut oil for hair and skin. Some people use coconut oil on their hair to add lustre and shield it from harm.


It might penetrate the scalp more effectively than mineral oils. Your skin may perform more protectively and anti-inflammatory-ly by applying coconut oil!


Did you know that besides the evident benefits of this magical oil, there are some other "hacks" you did not know?


Table of Contents:



Here are some ways in which coconut oil can benefit you.


Hack 1: Base For Infusion Oil


  • Coconut oil is a fruit-based oil. It is super light, which makes it easy to apply and remove.

  • Infusion WITH coconut oil is easy, and infusion OF coconut oil is easy. You can use this oil to infuse herbs and other oils.

  • It is one of the favourite oils of many people for this purpose.

  • So if you like to add extra magic to your oil, coconut oil is the best choice!



Hack 2: Cuticles and Lips Softener


If you have dry cuticles or lips, coconut oil is for you!


  • Cuticle oil keeps the cuticles hydrated and stiff. It prevents the nails from getting brittle.


But do you know that cuticle oils are quite expensive? And why would you spend all that money when coconut oil can do the job well while giving you other benefits?


  • Coconut also works as a lip softener.

  • If you have dry lips or wrinkles around the lips, go for coconut oil.

  • Massage coconut oil on and around your lips, and say bye-bye to the wrinkles, dark skin, and dried lips! Try it yourself and see the results!


But remember, this oil is comedogenic, which means it gets deposited in the pores.


So make sure to wipe it off after massaging. Avoid leaving it on your skin, or it will block the pores.



Hack 3: Makeup Remover


Now I do not suggest using coconut oil as a permanent makeup remover.


  • You can use it once in a while, or in case makeup remover is not available; massage coconut oil on your face to remove the makeup.

  • It will remove the makeup while hydrating your skin. But again, remember that coconut oil is comedogenic and can settle in the pores.

  • Make sure to wash your face with a facewash or use micellar water after using coconut oil.


So the bottom line is to use coconut oil as a makeup remover in case of emergency.



Hack 4: Oil Pulling

  • During oil pulling, we swish the oil around the mouth like mouthwash.

  • It has long been a staple of Indian traditional medicine.

  • It promises that by doing so, your oral health, teeth, and breath will all improve.

  • Utilizing coconut oil for oil pulling is becoming more and more popular.

  • You can use any oil for oil pulling (there are oils, especially for this purpose, but they will burn a hole in your pockets!), but coconut oil is the most affordable and comfortable option.

  • It will not taste weird or bad; coconut oil tastes sweet.



Hack 5: Hair Oil Spa


Do coconut oil hair spa once, and you will ask yourself, "Why did I devote all that time in a salon to get a hair spa?"


  • All you have to do is warm up the oil using the double boiler method or keep the oil in a microwave for 10 seconds, whichever suits you.

  • Once the oil is warmed up, massage it on your scalp and hair lengths.

  • This hair spa will provide your hair with a wonderful level of hydration.

  • It is a blessing, especially for the summer season.


I know it is hard to take time out for ourselves, but give this hair spa a try. Apply the hot oil and then wrap your hair with a warm towel.


Your hair will thank you for taking such good care of them!



Hack 6: To Cure Burn Scars


We often get clumsy around hot utensils and get minor burns while cooking or baking. These minor burns can be treated with coconut oil.


  • You can take the oil in a small container, add a little kasturi turmeric and shake it well. Leave the oil in the sun for 2-3 days. Use it whenever needed.


  • It was discovered that applying virgin coconut oil to wounds accelerated healing, enhanced antioxidant status, and elevated amounts of collagen, a crucial protein that promotes wound healing.


  • Its antibacterial capabilities may help lessen the chance of infection, one of the main risk factors that might make the healing process more challenging, in addition to promoting wound healing.


But remember, this remedy is only for minor burns. Do not apply this remedy for severe burns. See a doctor in case of severe burns.


Coconut oil has the potential to cure dark spots, wounds, scars, chickenpox scars, etc. However, it might not work for everyone, but it is worth a try.


 




Conclusion:


Coconut oil is a highly beneficial oil. In addition to having antimicrobial qualities that can help treat acne and shield the skin from dangerous bacteria, medium-chain fatty acids are another component of coconut oil that has these benefits.


If you have oily or sensitive skin, consult a dermatologist.


Don't forget to come back and write a review based on your experience, and inspire others to try it too.
