Your Guide to Memorial Day Travel & Outdoor Uses for Coconut Oil
After Sun Savior
Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that prevent sun damage and treat sunburns. The good fats treat peeling, dry skin and renew skin cells naturally. And the naturally existing lauric acid in Coconut Oil reduces pain, itchiness & redness so you wake up glowing not toasty.
Right before heading out in the sun, rub a small amount of CoCo in your hair. The good saturated fats of coconut oil will not only lock in the moisture of your hair but also create a shield against all external aggressions: sun, wind, and even salted water thanks to the hydrophobic property of oil!
Cooking outside on the grill for Memorial Day? Trying some new treats for the family? Using coconut oil instead of butter is a popular substitute that can improve your overall health and add a new flavor to your cooking.
Cut and Wound Care
Coconut Oil is an effective way to care for wounds & prevent scarring quickly due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, & healing properties. Coconut Oil reduces inflammation and encourages the skin to increase collagen production which helps skin cells repair themselves.
The healing properties of Coconut Oil are effective in treating and soothing rashes by relieving itchy skin, reducing redness, as well as smoothing and softening the infected area. Lauric acid in coconut oil can also help control fungal and bacterial infections such as eczema.
Bug Bite Relief
Bugs and mosquitos are an inevitable part of any outdoor activity, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer the stings and bites that come with them. Ditch the harsh chemicals of other sprays and opt for Conscious Coconut oil instead—it will reduce the sting, redness & itch within a few minutes.
Coconut oil’s antimicrobial properties help to create a protective barrier against germs. Try dabbing a bit under your nose and on hands after sanitizer to hydrate and protect yourself - 100% naturally!
Coconut oil boosts weakened immune systems by improving white blood cell counts and creating a hostile environment for viruses, which helps the body fight them head on. Add some CoCo into your coffee on the flight for a boost!
Face and Body Cleanser
Have you heard that like attracts like? It couldn’t be more true in the case with skin sebum and coconut oil. CoCo penetrates deep into the skin and pushes out grime, dirt, germs and other impurities, making it a rockin’ cleanser for your face and body.
Avoid razor burn, bumps, and irritation from shaving by swapping your shaving creams out for Conscious Coconut Oil. The oil will act as a barrier between your skin and the blade - moisturizing your skin while achieving a closer shave.
Oral Care Booster
Lessen the load of bacteria in your mouth by oil pulling with coconut oil. Swishing your smile with a tablespoon of Conscious Coconut daily will work as an oral detox and sinus savior, while also strengthening your teeth and gums. Added bonus? Expect fresher breath & whiter teeth!
The abundant fatty acids in CoCo not only penetrate your hair follicles, but provide them with some serious shine. Vitamin E nourishes from the inside out, rebuilding proteins & strengthening your hair. Apply from root to tip, just as you would any other conditioner, wrap with a towel for about an hour or so, and rinse it out to reveal luscious locks!
