Why this is called the beauty booster

Coconut oil is being hailed for its beauty benefits. From skin hydration to a hair treatment and lip balm, the natural product is a one stop shop.

As a hair treatment, it's light weight so penetrates deep. It reduces the protein lost in your hair and makes it soft and shiny.

You only need a little bit - around the size of a 20 cent piece - and leave it in for at least 5 minutes. 

Coconut oil is also a great skin hydrator and can be used as a daily moisturiser. It conditions, softens, improves the appearance of fine lines and can help with skin disorders such as acne - but you should check with your dermatologist before giving it a go.

You can also use it on your cuticles, under your eyes (always pat products on this delicate area), as a make up remover and body scrub if you add a bit of sugar or salt.
