The Beauty Benefits of Coconut Oil

L-am  folosit in retetele mele preparate fara foc sau in smoothie-urile de fructe, pana intr-o zi in care m-am decis sa il introduc si in rutina mea  de beauty. Auzisem de beneficiile sale si am fost surprinsa sa descopar ca, intr-adevar, uleiul din nuca de cocos face minuni pentru piele si par, gratie proprietatilor sale antibacteriene şi antifungice si nu numai.

Stim cu totii ca pielea noastra are nevoie de o  hidratare speciala in sezonul rece, iar pentru a nu-mi mai ascunde mainile intr-o pereche de manusi, am ales sa folosesc uleiul de cocos in locul cremei de maini. Pe langa aroma sa voluptoasa, am descoperit ca uleiul din nuca de cocos hidrateaza in profunzime pielea si inlatura senzatia de piele uscata, conferindu-i suplete.

Ingrijirea tenului este esentiala, de aceea, am fost surprinsa sa aflu ca pot folosi acest ulei si in ritualul de curatare al tenului. Mi-am facut un obicei din a  incalzi  in palme o cantitate mica de ulei, urmand sa masez, prin miscari circulare pielea sensibila a fetei. Dupa acest procedeu, aplic un gel de curatare pentru a elimina excesul de grasime, iar rezultatul este unul surprinzator! Asta deoarece uleiul de cocos tonifica, exfoliaza si infrumuseteaza pielea, incetinind totodata procesul de imbatranire al tenului. Asa ca adaug acest ulei si in mastile pe care mi le prepar singura, in casa, ori de cate ori am timp.

Parul nostru are nevoie de o ingrijire aparte, de aceea uleiul de cocos este recomandat in locul balsamului de par. Multumita vitaminei E din compozitia acestuia, fibra capilara este stimulata, iar firul de par devine mai sanatos si mai suplu. Totodata, uleiul de nuca de cocos previne pierderea proteinelor si reda parului uscat stralucirea proprie. Eu il aplic pe parul umed, imi  prind parul intr-un coc pentru aproximativ o ora, iar dupa acest procedeu, samponez. Va marturisesc ca face minuni!

I’ve used it in preparing my meals without fire or in a fruit-smoothie, until one day in which I decided to introduce it in my beauty routine. Heard so many time of its benefits and I was surprised to discover that in fact, coconut oil does wonders for the skin and hair, thanks to its antibacterial and antifungal properties and more.

We all know that our skin needs a special moisturising during cold season, so, not to hide my hands into a pair of gloves, I chose to use coconut oil. Besides its yummy flavor, I discovered that this voluptuous coconut oil moisturizes in depth, removes the sensation of dry skin, giving it suppleness.

Skin care is essential, which is why I was surprised to find out that can I use this oil during my cleansing ritual of the skin. I’ve developed a habit to heat into my palms a small amount of oil, and rub with circular movements the sensitive skin of the face. After this, I apply a gel for cleansing to remove excess fat and the result is an amazing one! That’s because the coconut oil exfoliates and tones the skin, slowing down at the same time  the aging process. So I add this oil in my homemade masks that I prepare whenever I have time.

Our hair needs special care, therefore the oil is recommended sometimes in the place of hair conditioner. Thanks to vitamin E from its composition, the capillary fiber is stimulated, and the hair becomes healthier and leaner. At the same time, coconut oil prevents hair loss and loss of proteins and gives back to the hair its natural brilliance. I apply it on wet hair, I put my hair up into a bun for about an hour, and after this procedure I use my favorite shampoo. I truly tell you it does wonders with your hair!
