If you read my post last month, you'll know that I've recently discovered the beauty of coconut oil as a hair conditioner from another pinterest pin. Yesterday, I found this pin on pinterest here--http://healthimpactnews.com/2011/80-uses-for-coconut-oil/ that describes 80 different uses for it! I'm all for things are reasonable and have multiple uses around the house.
First thing I did was try the coconut oil as a moisturizing lotion for my legs, arms, and hands. All I did was literally scoop it out of the jar and put it on my skin to rub it in. It was a bit greasier than I like for lotions, but my skin feels amazing this morning! So soft and moisturized! I have super dry skin in the winter, so this is huge.
Next thing I did was try the coconut oil as a chapstick for my dry lips. Besides dry skin, I really get dry lips in the winter, and my other chapsticks are not cutting it. A little coconut oil on my lips really did an amazing job last night. Hoping to get them back in shape soon.
