Brilliant Ways To Use Coconut Oil

Coconut oil isn’t just for cooking; it is a multitasker that can be used for various purposes. It has indefinite health benefits. The oil is not only used in tropical countries where they are in abundance, but also in countries like UK and US. It is free of chemicals and is used in cosmetics. People all over the world are discovering the magic of coconut oil as it is gaining immense popularity. From your beauty counter to your kitchen pantry, here’s how to make the best of this magical potion.

1.      Instant Energy Booster:

There are days when we feel drained out at the very starting of the day. To give you a quick energy boost, mix a tablespoon of coconut oil with some chia seeds and consume on empty stomach. This will keep you active all day long. This remedy is also beneficial for athletes as they are an alternative to artificial energy drinks. It can be used as a pre-workout drink. For best results, it should be taken seven hours prior to workout.

2.      Anti-Ageing:                                                                                                                            

Coconut oil is enriched with Vitamin E and helps in keeping the skin healthy. Some health experts suggest using it in salads. Just drizzle a few drops of coconut oil on fresh vegetables or fry them in oil. It will give you a fresh and younger looking skin. 

3.      Smooth Shave:                                                                                                                            

Coconut isn’t just better than a shaving cream, its way better. It leaves your skin soft and irritation free. If you have run out of shaving cream or aftershave lotion, add a layer of coconut oil for a smooth finish to your shave by simply patting the skin with the oil.

4.      Drive Away from Sweet Cravings:

Are you facing trouble losing weight because you just can’t control eating sweets? Coconut oil can suppress your sweet tooth too. Just add a spoonful of virgin coconut oil to lukewarm water and drink it.

5.      Sunscreen:

Coconut oil can also make up for a natural and chemical-free sunscreen, having an SPF approximately between 7.5 and 8. If you are scared of the harmful chemicals in your sunscreen, coconut oil can serve as an alternative. Well, those who already have an oily skin can mix the oil with some body lotion or rosewater and apply.

6.      Fat-Free Cooking:

It helps in bursting fat from your body and fastens the metabolism. It is great for cooking as it has a low calorie count. For those who are diet conscious, it is an excellent replacement for the ghee and butter which amounts for a huge number of calories.
