Lip balm

When you start using the coconut oil as lip balm, you will forget worrying about chapped lips. It gives an ultra-hydrating function that moisturizes our lips. Also, as it's semisolid at room temperature, you can just pack a bit in a spare contact lens holder. And keep dabbing it on your lips throughout the day.

Makeup Remover

When it comes to a makeup remover, coconut oil even works on waterproof mascara. Put it directly to the face or apply a little on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over your eyes and face. Your makeup will melt away. Then wash your face as usual when you are done. You will find the coconut oil as a makeup remover can break down waxy, inky eye makeup and even leaves the delicate area hydrated.

Leave it for around 10 minutes then rinse. It can protect the fragile ends of your hair and prevent the loss.
