#Best10WithMYD - Coconut Oil

We are always told to make the best use of anything and everything that's given to us but how are we supposed to do that unless we know all the possible uses? As we mentioned earlier, we at MYD are determined to make your lives simpler and here we are back again! ;) 
From this post on, for the entire month of July we will be bringing to you ten amazing ways to use different kinds of products that are just lying around in your house. Sounds kind of fun, doesn't it?
So our first product for this month is something that all of us have at our houses and its 'Coconut Oil'.
Coconut oil is one of the most underestimated products that all of us own. It also happens to be one of my favorite oils ever! So keep on reading to know ten different ways how you can use Coconut Oil- 

1. As a pre conditioner. Coconut oil works great as a pre conditioner. Just massage your hair with it 30 minutes before taking a shower and it will make your hair really smooth and shiny. Do this twice a week for best results. 

2. For soft supple skin. With the weather changes comes flaky skin. Rub coconut oil all over your body 20 minutes before taking a bath and you will notice your skin will become very soft. Bye bye rough skin!

3. As a makeup remover. Coconut oil is one of the best natural makeup removers you will ever find. It melts away any kind of makeup very easily without causing any harm to your skin.

4. In exfoliating scrubs. Making a natural exfoliating scrub at home is very simple. just mix equal parts of coconut oil and sugar and use it as a scrub to remove any dead skin. It is very natural and great for those with sensitive skin. 

5. For treating dark circles. Massage a tiny amount of coconut oil into your under eye area and leave it overnight. You will wake up next day with less visible dark circles. 

6. To clean makeup brushes. Coconut oil easily gets rid of all the makeup on the makeup brushes very easily. (even the foundation brushes!) Soak your dirty brushes in some coconut oil prior to washing them. Cleaning them this way will become much easier!

7. For spot treatment. Coconut oil is great to treat those stubborn face spots that just don't seem to go. Massage a small amount of oil into the spot and let it sit there for sometime before washing it off. 
Your spots will get lighter in just a few days. 

8. To treat sunburns. Sunburns can be very painful and coconut oil is a great remedy to treat it. The oil calms the skin and helps heal sunburns faster. It can also be used to get rid of unpleasant tan lines. 

9. For diluting essential oils. Most essential oils are highly concentrated and need to be diluted first. Coconut oil works great as a base oil to dilute such essential oils. 

10. For softer feet. Massage coconut oil on your heels before going to bed. You will wake up to smoother feet. 

So these were the various ways in which we use coconut oil. I hope this helped you all and if you do try any of them then do let us know :)
