3 DIY Beauty Recipes Using LouAna Organic Coconut Oil
When it comes to DIY beauty recipes, there are few ingredients we rely on as much as organic coconut oil.
And not just because with love the slightly tropical scent… though that we do!
Coconut oil (like our new favorite: LouAna Organic Coconut Oil!) is a DIY-er’s miracle product. It’s packed with lauric acid, which helps to gently encourage cell-turnover; loaded with healthy fat, which brilliantly moisturizes skin; and even has antibacterial properties, making it ideal for all skin types. And since it’s organic, you can rest assured that every ounce being absorbed by your porous skin is not only beauty-boosting, but also good for you too!
With so many incredible beauty-boosting properties, you can really use LouAna Organic Coconut Oil for practically everything; but, to get you started, here are 3 of our favorite DIY beauty recipes featuring LouAna Organic Coconut Oil!
Cellulite Reducing Scrub
With caffeinated coffee, which increases circulation and dialtes your blood vessels, and LouAna Organic Coconut Oil, which helps both to encourage cell turnover and to keep skin hydrated and plump, this caffeinated scrub will immediately (albeit temporarily) reduce the appearance of cellulite.
1/4 cup Caffeinated Coffee Grounds
1/4 cup + 1 tsp LouAna Organic Coconut Oil, divided
Combine the coffee grounds with 1/4 cup of the LouAna Organic Coconut Oil and mix until well combined. (You can use used coffee grounds right out of your coffee machine, just be sure to let them cool so you don’t burn yourself.) Standing in the shower (for easy clean up!), vigorously massage the scrub over any cellulite-ridden areas for up to 5 minutes. Wash off with warm water and your favorite body wash. Pat dry before applying the remaining teaspoon of LouAna Organic Coconut Oil as a moisturizer. Repeat up to 3 times per week.
Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
Most eye makeup removers on the market struggle to get the job done, leaving you tugging on the delicate skin around your eyes, which can lead to irritation and wrinkles. LouAna Organic Coconut Oil, though, quickly, easily, and gently takes off even the most stubborn eye makeup.
1/4 tsp LouAna Organic Coconut Oil
Warm the LouAna Organic Coconut Oil by placing the entire jar in a bowl of warm water, so it’s liquefied. Dip a Q-tip in the LouAna Organic Coconut Oil and gently rub it over your eye makeup, keeping your eyes closed. Repeat until the Q-tip is clean. Let the residual coconut oil remain around your eyes as a moisturizer!
Frizz Fighting Spot Treatment
So many frizz-fighting hair treatments either weigh your hair down or, well, just don’t work. Use a combination of both LouAna Organic Coconut Oil and avocado oil, though, an you’ll not only tame frizz, but also help to protect your hair from frizz-causing damage.
1/4 tsp LouAna Organic Coconut Oil 1/4 tsp Avocado Oil
1 clean toothbrush (designate one just for this!)
Combine the oils in a small bowl (or, if you want to make a large batch to use over time, combine them in a small bottle). Dip just the tips of the toothbrush bristles in the oils, dabbing off any excess on a tissue. (You can always apply more, so err on the side of too little than too much.) Brush the toothbrush over the frizzy portions of your hair, from root to end. Repeat, as necessary.
