We sent a jar of Kapuluan Raw Organic Coconut Oil to LA Based Beauty Blogger Atsuna Matsui for her review and Best 5 Coconut Oil Beauty Benefits and Tips for Skin, Face, Teeth, and Hair!
Here are her 5 Beauty Uses for Coconut Oil:
1. Body Oil
Kapuluan Coconut Oil is raw, 100% natural, and made for beauty. It absorbs well and has a beautiful subtle coconut aroma.
The medium-chain triglycerides and fatty acids present in coconut oil help keep skin hydrated, deeply penetrating the skin for great moisturizing without leaving you feeling greasy and slimy. It also contains plenty of vitamin E which is loaded with antioxidants to aid in recovery of skin damage, keeping skin ageless and protecting against cracking or wrinkling.
Using coconut oil for your skin might seem intimidating, but give it a try by experimenting with small amounts in the different ways mentioned above. It is very important to note that only extremely high-quality coconut oil which is pure and unprocessed should be used for skincare.
We recommend applying after a shower and apply to slightly damp skin. A little goes a long way, so if you use too much, just wait a moment and wipe off any excess with a towel.
2. Cuticle Oil
Nails, like hair and skin, are easily damaged, and coconut oil helps keep your cuticles moisturized, strong and healthy, promoting nail growth and preventing hangnails. We like to use a q tip to soak a little bit of coconut oil and gently apply it to the cuticles.
3. Coconut Oil Pulling
Coconut Oil has significant cleansing, detoxifying and healing effects for your teeth, as a powerful destroyer of all kinds of viruses and bacteria, and has been used to care for teeth in a process called oil pulling for thousands of years. Oil pulling is an ancient Indian remedy found in books written approximately 1500 years ago and has been shown to whiten teeth, reduce bad breath, prevent mouth and gum disease, and improve skin.
The process is very simple. You simply swish a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 5-20 minutes, spit it out, and then brush your teeth. However, make sure to not eat or drink anything before oil pulling.
4. Lip Balm
Coconut oil hydrates and protects lips from the elements much of the same way it safeguards your skin and hair. A natural SPF protects, and the fatty acids in coconut oil lock in moisture and provide an effective barrier for your lips. The same fatty acids in coconut oil that help your skin lock in moisture also provide that barrier when you put coconut oil on lips. It also tastes great, and doesn’t create the need for more, like some lip balms. The coconut oil lips benefits are simple and effective.
Our Pocket Size Mini Tubes are perfect for using as a lip balm!
5. Coconut Oil Hair Treatment
The Coconut Oil Hair benefits are extensive. Coconut oil conditions, strengthens, softens, and repairs hair. Overnight treatments do wonders for soft and silky hair, while a small amount can be rubbed in for an on-the-go frizz tamer. Natural oils repel water, preventing moisture from entering the hair shaft to create frizz. Coconut oil also acts as a great natural styling aid.
