Making yourself pretty can be very expensive. Many cosmetic products that you can buy from the local store have very big commercial additions and make you pay not only for the product or the ingredients of the product, but you are paying for the brand too. If you think this if frustrating maybe it’s time for you to consider some home remedies for beautiful skin.
The coconut oil is a type of oil that has many uses. It’s present in many home remedies for beautiful skin and that’s not all. It softens the hair, it’s a good moisturizer and it gives a healthy glow to the skin. That’s why you can use it instead of your shaving cream, as a hair conditioner or in combination with other ingredients (honey for example) as a hair mask, as a body moisturizer, or even as an eye make-up remover.

Stir them well especially after they melt then leave the body butter chill in your refrigerator for at least two hours. Once chilled use a mixer just like you beat the whipped cream.
