Coconut oil possesses emollients. Emollients fill up the empty spaces present between skin cells and end up making your whole skin feeling smooth! Feel free to rub it on the areas that are particularly dry including the sides of your mouth and your lips. Coconut oil is also extremely effective against the more painful forms of skin inflammations such as psoriasis and eczema.

Apply a small amount of coconut oil on a cotton ball and it will help you remove the longest lasting makeup products from waterproof mascara to high coverage foundation. A major upside of coconut oil is that it removes your makeup and leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated in turn!
