Ten Ways To Use Coconut Oil in Your Beauty Routine... - Guest Post by Olivia

Hi Everyone! As you may or not know I offer guest posts on my blog and the lovely Olivia wrote this post! If you too want to write a guest post for my blog just email me at: daisysianbutterworth@gmail.com ! I absolutely love this post, and Olivia's blog is a huge recommendation of mine, you should definitely check it out! Without further ado.. an amazing post by Olivia on: 

10 Reasons Why Coconut Oil Is Your Best Friend:

Hello everyone! My name is Olivia, and I am a beauty blogger over in the US. After a year or two of buying beauty products every time my mother and I  went out to go shopping, I had makeup coming out of practically everywhere in the house. I then created a blog. Although I didn’t get many views, and began posting less, I still had a passion to become a beauty blogger. I was very grateful to meet Daisy and be allowed to guest post on her absolutely perfect blog. So lots of love to daisy for letting me post with my “amazing” American grammar. ;) Now without further ado, I bring you 10 uses for coconut oil.

1.      Eye makeup remover- I know that when I use waterproof makeup it can be very hard to get off. When I often have this problem, I use a cotton ball dipped in coconut oil, and it gets eye makeup off effortlessly.

2.      Hydrating deep conditioner- summer does a lot of damage to your hair. The heat, the laziness of not properly washing it. You can easily get your hair looking great for the fall season by mixing one cup of hot water and two tablespoons of coconut oil (use more if your hair is longer). Once the coconut oil settles, massage it onto your scalp and hair, comb it through with a wide-toothed comb, wrap it into a bun, and put a shower cap over it. Let it sit for an hour, then rinse thoroughly with warm water for shiny, beautiful hair!

3.      Cuticle cream- I use false acrylic nails and those do look pretty but most of the time they ruin my cuticles. Applying coconut oil directly onto your cuticles helps soften them and strengthens your nails. 

4.      Exfoliator- Mix 3 tablespoons of coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a jar for a DIY exfoliator that'll leave your skin glowing.

5.      Natural lip balm- Put coconut oil directly on your lips. It helps heal dry, chapped lips in no time!

6.      Makeup brush cleaner- After countless hours of practicing different makeup looks over the summer, my brushes really needed to be cleaned. Microwave a few tablespoons of coconut oil for about 30 seconds, then dip your brushes in it. Rub them on a paper towel to remove the makeup, and rinse under warm water. Coconut oil has anti-fungal benefits, so it will help keep your brushes bacteria-free.

7.      Highlighter- After you put your makeup on, swipe a tiny amount on your cheeks and the bridge of your nose to get beautiful glowing skin.

8.      Zipper Fixer- Sometimes I can be a bit impatient with my zippers and zip them up a little too fast, getting them stuck. Dip a cotton swab into coconut oil and rub it on a jammed zipper to loosen it up.

9.      Body moisturizer- Coconut oil will soften your skin and treat cracked heels and dry elbows.

10.  Natural deodorant Apply coconut oil to the areas you sweat the most, or make your own homemade deodorant stick with coconut oil, shea butter, baking soda, and arrowroot!
