How To Get Awesome Skin Glow and Lustrous Hair At Low Cost

Looking for a low-cost yet powerful, personal care product to beautify you INSIDE and OUT that does not contain harmful chemicals or additives?

Then look no further than your kitchen cupboard - a natural oil that most communities who live in coastal, tropical regions have known and used for centuries, ie. the humble coconut oil, treasured as a hair conditioner which gives gloss and sheen and a strong, lustrous thickness to hair, plus as an effective, skin moisturiser.

In Indian cultures, the women routinely apply the coconut oil liberally and leave it on overnight to maximise its health and beauty effects. Although you might smell a tad oily, when you saturate yourself with coconut oil and then leave it on overnight (that is the most effective method), it is well worth the sacrifice once you shower off in the morning and find that your skin is more supple, softer, less lined and baby-smooth.

For that reason it might be better to take your coconut 'bath' in the weekends. Alternatively look for deodorised, organic, coconut oil so you can still indulge in your beauty treatment without driving away your nearest and dearest. For some people coconut oil applied often to their hair and scalp has even been known to keep grey hairs at bay.

TIP: If you want to be beautiful, start with a gorgeous skin...you can't go wrong when you start with the basics - afterall you are covered in skin (it's actually the biggest organ in your body!). Once your 'blank canvas' (your skin) is in glowing condition, then sure, apply your makeup, etc. You won't need much if your skin is in peak condition - in fact, less is more as you want your natural glow to shine through...oh, so naturally and then some - looking and feeling silky smooth (which btw, is what your guy likes!). Remember that beauty begins from within, so remember to include coconut oil in your diet too in addition to your external, coconut-oil, beauty regime.
