On September 2, not only will we be celebrating Spring, but also World Coconut Day.

The natural multi-tasker coconut oil is known for many benefits. This wonder oil can replace many of your beauty products.

In fact, this oil is used in many beauty products courtesy its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It’s an excellent moisturiser for your skin and it smells divine.

Here are six ways you can use coconut oil for your face:

1. Skin moisturiser

This wonder oil is high in fatty acids and vitamin E, which makes it a good recipe for a moisturiser. If you have really dry skin, coconut oil can be your saviour. It speeds the healing process of the skin, reduces water retention and boosts hydration.

2. Remover stubborn make-up

3. Natural Highlighter

Do you know a lot of highlighting products have coconut oil as a base? This oil works like magic on your skin. It glides perfectly on the skin and reflects pigment. To get that natural glow, you can sweep some coconut oil on your cheeks. You can also add a little bit of pigment or broken shadow to get your sparkle on!

4. Fight acne

Coconut oil is known for its antibacterial properties and can help to control acne. The fatty acids kill the bacteria causing acne and even balances the sebum production.

5. Natural Sunscreen

Coconut oil has a natural SPF of 4-5, which can protect your skin from the sun rays. However, the SPF isn’t sufficient for a long day in the sun. So, if you’re sun exposure is around 30 minutes or so, coconut oil can be your perfect moisturiser and sunblock.

6. ​Anti-ageing benefits

With coconut oil, you don’t have to splurge on expensive anti-ageing products. The genius oil helps to boost collagen production which keeps your skin looking youthful. The oil penetrates deep into the skin, giving your skin the healthy glow back.
