Coconut oil is the Jack of all trades. It can literally do EVERYTHING! You can cook with it, use it for household cleaning, bake with it, and even use it in your beauty routine! After reading this article you are going to want to run to the store and grab you a jar, I guarantee it.

  1. Moisturizer: I keep a jar of coconut oil by my sink and use it as lotion for my face and body when I get out of the shower.
  2. Makeup remover: Like I said above, I keep a jar of the oil by my sink. At the end of the day, I just scrape a little out of the jar and rub it on my eyelids and under my eyes, and use a tissue to wipe my makeup off. It works sooooo well, and it doesn’t irritate my eyes like other makeup removers!
  3. Shaving cream: Slather some coconut oil on your legs as shaving cream! It will melt right on your skin, and it will leave your legs feeling ultra smooth afterwards.
  4. Toothpaste: Yup, this is even good to use to clean your teeth! There are tons of DIY coconut oil toothpastes out there, and it is much better for your body than store bought toothpaste.

All-natural is the way to go! Plus, when you use coconut oil in your beauty routine, you end up smelling slightly like coconut, which reminds me of the beach, so that is always a plus!

Having healthy, glowing skin is one of the simple pleasures in life. A homemade coconut oil face mask can help you achieve the healthy skin we all long for! Coconut oil is naturally rich in antioxidants and healthy acids and will soften and lubricate healthy skin cells, break down dead cells, heal acne, and hydrate skin. How does this homemade mask work?

Coconut oil’s structure allows it to infiltrate skin pores to soften rough skin from within. Honey is a natural humectant, which hydrates skin cells. The last ingredient is lemon juice. Fresh lemon juice helps tighten and shrink large pores.

Ingredients:8836716_f520

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

 

Combine these ingredients in a small bowl. Apply a thick coat of the mixture onto your clean face. Allow it to sit on your face for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with cool water. Pat your face dry, don’t rub it.

Now get ready for clear, soft skin!

4 Items Every Girl Needs in Her Bathroom

What are some staple items in your bathroom that you use on a daily basis? No, I don’t mean the toilet, I mean skin/hair/general beauty items! There are a few things I think every girl should have in her bathroom, just to make sure she has everything she may need to maintain her beauty, right at her disposal! Feeling unprepared is the worrrrst. Here are 4 such items!

  1. Dry shampoo: Washing our hair every day is so overrated! Every other day is much healthier, and if you can hold out longer, that’s even better! This is why dry shampoo is a vital product to have in your bathroom. Spray some on your roots before you go to bed to allow it to absorb the oils as you sleep, and top it off with a little spritz in the morning when you wake up.
  2. Coconut oil: This stuff is amazing. Keep it in a jar by your sink and use it to moisturize, remove your makeup, and even as shaving cream!18kxz3udb60v8jpg
  3. SPF moisturizer: The best way to prevent wrinkles is to protect your skin from the sun! Use a SPF moisturizer every day to ward off those harmful rays.
  4. A truckload of bobby pins: It never fails. I will start off the month with a full pack of bobby pins, and when the end of the month rolls around, I cannot find a single one of them. The best solution is to either keep a ton of them in your bathroom, or rig up a magnet to stick them to once you take them out, like the picture on the right!

Having these items in my bathroom makes me feel prepared for anything my beauty routine may throw at me!

During the summer, my hair can take a beating. From swimming pools with tons of chemicals to hot humid days and sun damage, you are lucky if you come away from summer with even remotely healthy hair. One way to make sure your hair survives the summer is to do hot oil treatments. Here is my fav!coconut-oil-1

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Warm these two ingredients on the microwave and then massage them into your hair. I like to use a plastic squeeze bottle to squirt it into my hair. Then I put a shower cap on my hair and then make a towel turban around it. Let the mask sit on your hair for about 15 minutes, and then thoroughly rinse out the oil and use shampoo to wash your hair. Make sure to wash alllll of the remaining oil out, you don’t want any grease left in there!

If you do this mask about once a week this summer, your hair will THANK you!

XOXO, Chels

Whether you’ve got facial scars as the result of bad acne, an injury, or a surgery, having a scar on your face can be very discouraging.  While some can easily be covered with makeup, others are nearly impossible.  Believe it or not, there is a way to reduce the appearance of scars naturally with your own at-home recipe!  It’s time to banish scarring once and for all!Chelsea Crockett- DIY scar remover

What you’ll need:

  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of purified water
  • Coconut oil

Create a paste by mixing together the baking soda and water.  Apply to the scarred area for 5 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.  Use your hands to rinse off the mixture instead of using a towel.  You’ll want to be as gentle as possible!  Last, apply coconut oil to the area to moisturize and reduce darkening! Hint: try this before bed, so the coconut oil has enough time to sit.  Repeat this process once a day until the scarring has reduced!

XOXO,

Chelsea

I always get nervous when I straighten/curl my hair. I hate damaging it! I go through so much heat protectant because of my long thing hair. In order to keep your hair growing long and strong, you need to protect it from damage. The main thing that heat protectant does is moisturize your hair, so why not do it naturally? Here is how:Olive-oil

I did my research and found that coconut oil can actually work as a heat protectant! It is inexpensive, smells wonderful, and works! I usually put it on my hair when it is wet and then use a brush to evenly distribute it. Only use a little bit because it can make your hair a wee bit greasy if you use too much. It makes my hair so so so silky smooth! Also, after I use coconut oil as heat protectant on my hair and then straighten it, it stays straight ALL day! You can use other oils on your hair that work just as well as coconut oil in the “protectant” area! These oils are argan oil, shea butter, olive oil, and grape seed oil.

Using oils on your hair helps your hair replenish its natural oils, which is super healthy for your hair! Try these techniques and comment below and tell me how it goes!

I am enjoying healthy, moisturized hair, and you can too!
