Here are 10 beauty benefits of coconut oil.

1. Use on the skin for a basic lotion. If you suffer from dry skin, coconut oil is extremely moisturizing.

2. Use it to remove makeup. Eye liner and mascara can be so hard to remove with the face wash. Wipe your face with coconut oil and wash it after to free your face of makeup.

3. It can help lighten stretch marks. Coco butter from the drugs store contain other added ingredients like, dyes and perfumes. So it doesn’t work as well as coconut oil.

4. It has a natural SPF 4, which means it can be used as sunscreen.

5. It can help cure yeast infections. Yes you read that right, it can be used for yeast infections!

6. It can help get rid of frizzy hair for all my natural girls out there. Rub a small amount in your hand first and then rub your hands in your hair and frizz be gone.
