Oil Over Everything

You've probably heard the trend by now of using Coconut Oil and Argan Oil for well...everything.

I had to do some research when I received these products because I wanted to do them justice and give y'all a list of just some of the hundreds of things you can do with these oils!


I'm a big fan of natural ingredients and these two oils are completely natural.
Radha Beauty uses the purest sources and stand behind all of their products.



There are tons of uses for coconut oil on Pinterest, just check it out for yourself!

My favorites are:

-massaging your cuticles with it, it's so moisturizing!

-Mixing it with equal parts honey, coating the dry ends of your hair, leave in for 40 minutes and then wash as normal! It makes your hair soft & shiny!
 
-combine a little coconut oil with a bit of brown sugar, it makes a wonderful lip or body scrub
 
-swap it for your shaving cream, if you don't want to spring for the store bought stuff (or if it breaks your legs out!) coconut oil is a smooth, moisturizing substitute!

-I've even been adding it to my morning smoothies, it's an instant source of energy & added fat which keeps me full until lunch time :) 


Y'all already know about my love affair with argan oil.
In fact, I use it daily because I've gotten into the habit of oil cleansing (which has made my face and skin so much better).

Top uses for argan oil:

-dry skin patches? Rub a little bit of argan oil on it before you go to sleep, by the next morning it'll be moisturized and nourished!

-if you have rough heels you can apply argan oil and then top with socks, when you remove them your heels should be softened!

-stretch marks are old news if you have argan oil on hand, just apply liberally and massage in on a daily basis :)

-apply it to the ends of your hair as a deep conditioner

-oil cleansing! apply oil to your face after you get out of the shower, apply a washcloth which has been soaked in hot water, let sit for one to two minutes. This opens up your pores and allows the oil to be absorbed, it will help clean out your pores and prevent breakouts & aging!



I hope this was an educational post, I know how I feel about these posts and I can only hope y'all will try them out and feel the same!

Until next time. . .
