Some uses of coconut oil ✨✨✨

In case you weren’t aware of how magical it is

- Use as a makeup remover
- Use as a facial moisturizer (use wisely as if you use too much it can clog your pores so be sure to test out what amount is best for your skin type)
- Nourishing oil for your hair: hot oil treatment, hair mask or simply just apply it as a spray or leave in conditioner💆🏽
- Body moisturizer (helps with extremely dry skin, eczema, and fungal infections)
- Natural highlighter (apply to areas you’d like a little more glo💫💫)
- Great to use instead of shaving cream - EVERYWHERE (leaves ya legs and coochie feelin baby soft)
- Can be used as aftershave too
- Take a spoonful to help with digestion
- Coconut oil is the second greatest source of Lauric acid after breast milk. This means it has a super high amount of HEALTHY FATS
- Coconut oil has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. Consuming coconut oil can aid in digestion issues due to inflammation or presence of “bad” bacteria. Applying coconut oil can help relieve fungus and bacterial infections on the skin
- Healthier alternative to butter in cooking and baking
- Can help improve your body’s absorption of magnesium and calcium
- Can be used as a lube during masturbation (does not upset vaginas natural flora), handjobs and blowjobs – however do NOT use with a condom because the oil will corrode the condom
- Natural mouthwash: “oil pulling” with coconut oil is extremely beneficial to oral health. Wish around one spoonful of coconut oil with a few drops of your fave essential oil in your mouth for 5 min. Spit out in the garbage (coconut oil will solidify at room temp so may clog your drains). Then brush your teeth. This can whiten and strengthen your teeth without the use of harsh bleach in whitening strips and will help with bad breath
- Can help with weight loss
- Make a natural deodorant with coconut oil, essential oil and arrowroot powder / cornstarch and baking soda
- Can be used as a sunscreen (low SPF)
- Mix with sugar and make a sexyy body scrub
- Can help relieve bug bites and post ivy/poison oak rashes
- Use with apple cider vinegar for natural lice treatment
- Balances body’s hormones
- Coconut oil with a few drops of peppermint oil can work as an insect repellent

These aren’t even all of the uses for wonderful coconut oil. If you think anymore feel free to add on or message me

Any suggestions for a night oil? I just finished a bottle of Luna (which only made me break out and smelled like pasta) and I'm on the hunt for something new. I have combo skin but I really like to use something really hydrating at night. Thanks! 😘

Aphrodite bathes in the summer glow,
She slides her godly body,
Into the kiddy pool below.

The coolness of the water,
Sparkles from her beautiful skin,
Well nourished from sweet oils.

As she relaxes she brings roses,
To her precious colored lips,
Closes her eye lashes and taste romance.

Soon on a whim she steps from her pool,
As she rises jewels begin to fall,
Pearls, diamonds and gold.

Summer Aphrodite,
Golden skinned and golden haired,
Bright eyed and fair.

The wind is her towel,
As she walks away gloriously nude,
And as everyone stops and turn.

They notice she is no longer there.
Just the sweet smell,
Of her summer time bath.

—  Summer Aphrodite

HIGH FIVE: SUNLESS TANNERS THAT WOW

Get out of that sticky spray booth! These DIY tanners are the new gold standard.

We’re the third rock from the sun, and we want our skin to look it—without the damage, of course. Before you book an awkward spray tan with a stranger, check out these more innovative ways to catch a DIY beautiful golden tan this summer. JESSICA VELEZ

SLOW AND STEADY

If your natural skintone is particularly fair, then you might want to ease into the bronze age. First Aid Beauty’s new Slow Glow Gradual Self-Tanning Moisturizer lets you build your tone with up to three to four days of continuous use. Your patience pays off, because not only will you be glowing from head to toe (you can use it on your face, too!) but your skin will also be nourished with coconut oil, vitamin E, and aloe vera.

ONE-STEP WONDER

When you’re on a long vacation, you want to keep your bag light. The problem? Most tanning routines include exfoliating with a body scrub, rubbing on tanning lotion, and then finishing with moisturizer. So your road-trip tote has more room for snacks, tarte has combined all three steps in one. Its revamped Brazilliance formula rubs away dead skin cells while simultaneously warming up your complexion and softening skin. Plus, it comes with a handy mitt for seamless application.

OIL TANNED UP

Fans of Josie Maran’s argan oil line will love every last drop of her new Argan Liquid Gold Self-Tanning Oil. She’s also cracked open a few coconuts and blended its water into the mix so it’s extra hydrating. To make this oft-uncomfortable tanning experience of touch more pleasurable, the oil comes accompanied with an extra-plush black mitt that will never looked stained from prior uses.

MIST OPPORTUNITY

Last minute pool-party invite? Instantly spray on a healthy-looking glow with SEPHORA COLLECTION Tinted Self-Tanning Mist. There’s no 12-hour waiting period—just spray, slip into your bathing suit, and go.

WARM SHOWER

We’re not talking about the water temperature. St. Tropez has an in-shower tanner that you rub on, let sit for a few minutes, and wash off. Yes, it’s a miracle. No, we’re not kidding. Love that stranded-on-an-isle look? Go for the In-Shower Tanner’s latest formula, which has deepened to a more medium-tone tan than the original version. And for those that shower at night, sleep soundly knowing it won’t stain even stark-white sheets.

5 Reasons You Need To Try Our New Body Care

So we have a new body care collection, and we’re basically obsessed with it. Here’s five reasons why (even though we could think of a million more):

1. It’s inspired by cotton.

AKA the softest, most breathable fabric ever…so you can imagine how amazing it feels on your skin.

2. It’s seriously smooth.

Infused with good-for-you, high-performance extracts and vitamins your skin will drink right up. Hel-lo, natural glow! 

3. It’s clinically proven.

We’re not messing around here—we developed the whole collection using our patent-pending Cotton Complex formula for ultimate hydration.

4. It’s not just a collection, it’s a lifestyle.  

It features a cream wash, exfoliating scrub, nourishing lotion and luxe oil, so check “entire skin care routine” off your list.

5. It comes in 4 subtle—yet delicious—scents. 

You can choose from acai, verbena, shea and coconut milk. Pro tip: wear on their own or layer with your signature perfume.


But don’t take our word for it—try Victoria’s Secret Body Care online and in stores.

Banana Brûlée Yogurt with Black Sesame Brittle.

Good morning!

This morning, I had a hankering for an unusual twist on the typical yogurt bowl: I had bananas and black sesame seeds sitting on my counter and immediately wanted to caramelize them both. Is that a medical condition, d'you think—having the sudden and overwhelming urge to caramelize everything in your immediate vicinity?

If so, I have it. And you’re looking at its (mega-delish) results.

This perfectly simple yogurt bowl can be made in 10 minutes and eaten any time of day. The black sesame seeds are full of bone-nourishing minerals (sesame seeds are one of the most significant sources of food-based calcium around), the yogurt brimming with probiotics and protein, and the banana brûlée made with skin-nourishing coconut oil.

Get the recipe here!

Tale as old as time…

A sweet bubble bar filled with the soft scent of rose absolute, refreshing lemon oil and vitamin E filled organic rosehip oil with nourishing shea butter and fair trade organic cocoa butter. Don’t be Beastly, share this with your loved one and let them be the Belle of the bubbles! Dare you travel the forbidden West Wing of White City in search of Lush?
