Beauty Jobs in Canada - Beauty Nine to Five

It has found its way into the beauty routines and hearts of many, including some Hollywood beauties like Emma Stone and Angelina Jolie and supermodels like Miranda Kerr. It’s a reliable and extremely beneficial product that is rapidly changing the beauty and health routines of women all over the world. It acts as a one- stop shop for all your beauty necessities and is a natural remedy for all things beauty and health related; it is the ever-powerful coconut oil. If you have yet to incorporate this natural wonder into your beauty regime, here are six ways to take your beauty routine to the next level with coconut oil.

Hair Mask 

Say goodbye to dry scalps, split ends and damaged, dried out hair. Simply apply coconut oil throughout your hair and then tie your hair into a slick bun. You can use the option of a shower cap to keep all of the oils contained in one place and to let it really soak into your scalp or you can leave your bun as is. You can leave the mask in for 30 to 40 minutes for noticeable results or to really reap benefits of the oil, we recommend leaving the mask on overnight. Doing this mask at least once a week will drastically improve dry hair, split ends and overall damaged hair. The coconut oil will give your hair a new smoothness and shine, and above all, a healthy dose of protein and nutrients that it needs. Your hair will be feeling stronger and growing longer in no time.

 

Face Cream

You are definitely going to want to start incorporating this one into your beauty routine! Coconut oil has incredible anti-aging and healing properties and is a great preventer of wrinkles, blemishes, dry and sagging skin. Applying just a few dabs all over your face and neck as an overnight moisturizer will be extremely effective and will leave you with smoother, more radiant and softer skin. If you simply can’t get enough, applying small amounts of the oil on top of your daily moisturizer will also give your skin the healthy boost it needs.

 

Lip Balm

The burning feeling of sore and chapped lips makes us all cringe just at the thought of it, luckily, coconut oil has more than enough moisture to bring your lips back to life. Apply the oil just as you would any regular lip balm, and let the healing action begin. Coconut oil will provide your lips with hydration, leaving them feeling softer, plumper and smoother.

Natural Make Up Remover

What better way to quickly and effectively remove your makeup than with the most lubricating substance out there? Coconut oil is the one and only answer ladies. It is a natural product, therefore making it safer and healthier to use than any of the other makeup removers on the market. Simply apply the oil to a cotton pad or tissue and swipe against your face and your makeup will vanish!

 

Cuticle Oil

With all of its amazing healing properties, coconut oil is the answer to weak nails and dry cuticles. By substituting regular cuticle oil for coconut oil, your nails will be looking and feeling healthier than ever before. By using this natural product, your nails have a far greater chance of becoming stronger and your cuticles softer.

 

Body Lotion

Lastly, applying coconut simply all over your body as a moisturizer will be one of the best ways to reap all of its benefits. Coconut oil will not only keep your entire body silky smooth but will also help with healing bruises, fading scars, hydrating dry skin, eliminating stretch marks and any other unwanted little body blips we might have.
