the many ways I use coconut oil for my beauty routine

Hello darling, today i want to talk about coconut oil and the many ways i like to incorporated in my beauty routine. I use it for hair, makeup remover and even for my teeth.

Hair mask

I have been using coconut oil for years, especially for my hair. Is my secret to having beautiful healthy hair. My beauty routine definitely took a backseat during quarantine so for three months i stop doing my hair mask mostly out of laziness. I notice the difference after three months my hair wasn’t as shiny or soft and it was looking very dull. I started my routine back in the summer and now my hair is back to looking shiny and healthy I swear by this.

Make sure to use pure organic coconut oil ( not refined) the only ingredient should be coconut oil

what i like to do is put a hair mask on my hair preferably a couple hrs before washing my hair. Sometimes i do it overnight, if i know i will be washing my hair the following day. If i do it overnight to sleep with you are going to need like a shower cap something to prevent your pillow and bed sheets to not get messy with oil. I do this hair mask everytime I wash my hair every week and sometimes every 2 weeks.

If you want to used it straight from the bottle is fine. What i like to do for less mess and to make sure i get every strand of hair is add the oil to a spray bottle. I usually get the huge tube of coconut oil from Costco and/or Amazon. I put the oil in a cup and melt in microwave for like 30 seconds then i added to a spray bottle. Trust me this helps so much because it can get messy when your applying it. For the next use i put the spray bottle under hot water so it can melt. (If you live in a hot climate your coconut oil is usually in liquid form)

The benefits of doing coconut oil hair mask

Promote hair growth for longer hair

prevents hair breakage and split ends

add shine and makes hair softer

and also helps with dandruff

Oil Pulling

I read a book Whole Beauty by Shiva Rose there she talks about oil pulling and why is so good to do. So of course i started doing that. The ideal routine is to do daily put a tablespoon of coconut oil in mouth and just swish in mouth for around 10 mins before brushing teeth so as soon as you wake up.

i’ll be honest oil pulling is not my favorite in fact is disgusting. I started doing every day but that only lasted for about a week i usually do it like 3 times a week ( to get the benefits is recommended to do daily) I have not seen any benefits but as i’m writing this im telling myself i will do this daily just to inform you guys. The reason i’m having such a hard time to commit to it is because is disgusting and to last 10 min is a lot. usually by 5 min im like im done because you cannot swallow the oil and once i feel it in the back of my throat it makes me want to puke and thats when im like nope done. but it is something that i want to really commit to because it has great benefits. also you need time in morning to do this.

Benefits of oil pulling

Helps with bad breath

helps fight and prevent cavities

reduce inflammation of the gum and overall improves gum health

and it whitens teeth

coconut oil is a great Makeup remover

I have a small jar in the bathroom with coconut oil and i use it for removing my makeup. This works so good on my skin it removes everything especially waterproof mascara. It literally melts the makeup off my face. I previously purchased the clinique take the day off makeup remover and after using it just once i returned it and i’m sticking with my coconut oil. With the clinique i had to rub and usually with coconut oil the mascara melts off my eyelashes why spend $31 dollars when i already have coconut oil. I have acne prone skin this doesn’t break me out i wash my face right away because coconut oil clogs pores so make sure to wash face right away.

Coconut oil shaving cream

Yes i have used coconut oil as a shaving cream works wonders and leaves left feeling super smooth. the down size to this is that it makes the razor dull because of the oil so make sure to clean razor very well once done.

I would love to know if you use coconut oil as part of your beauty routine if so how would love to know? leave your comments down below

one dress three different ways

Hello darlings today i wanted to share this super cute dress i love it because it’s such a spring dress with the print but then it has long sleeves so is perfect for transitional weather and even more colder days. I love the print and the feel of this dress so cute and so romantic, i’m not sure but i think of like romance with all the pretty roses. I styled it three different ways to show how versatile one dress can be just by changing the accessories. For video click here

Hola queridas, hoy quería compartir este vestido súper lindo, me encanta porque es un vestido de primavera con el estampado, pero luego tiene mangas largas. Por lo que es perfecto para el clima de transición y los días aún más fríos. Me encanta el estampado y la sensación de este vestido tan lindo y tan romántico. Este vestido me hace sentir un poco romántica serán las rosas? Lo diseñe de tres maneras diferentes para mostrar lo versátil que puede ser un vestido con solo cambiar los accesorios. Para ver el video haz click aquí.

I paired with these hot pink pumps and because is not an exact match with the dress but the shoes do match my lipstick. I added a cute green bag since the dress has green and some cute earrings and i have the perfect look to go out.

Los combiné con estos zapatos de tacón de color rosa intenso y porque no es una combinación exacta con el vestido, pero los zapatos combinan con mi lápiz labial. Le agregué un lindo bolso verde ya que el vestido tiene verde y unos lindos aretes y tengo el look perfecto para salir.

For the colder months ahead i decided to paired it up with knee high boots. These boots are a perfect combination with the dress because it give it a bit of an edgier look. I love the look of a super girly feminine dress paired up with some boots.

Para los meses más fríos que se avecinan, decidí combinarlo con botas hasta la rodilla. Estas botas son una combinación perfecta con el vestido porque le dan un aire un poco más atrevido. Me encanta el look de un vestido súper femenino combinado con unas botas.

I’m all about elevating a more casual look i really enjoy dressing down a dress as well. I paired it with some sneakers and a more larger bag for a more relaxed look and feel to the outfit.

Me gusta vestir un vestido más casual con tenis para darle una apariencia más relajada. Lo combiné con unos nikes y una bolsa más grande perfecto para el dia a dia.

Date Night

Starting with a more of a night vibe i would wear this on a date or even to go out for drinks with the girls. There’s something about a white and black outfit that i just love. I really like the contrast of ripped black jeans with a white shirt party at the bottom business at the top. of course for a night out i had to go with red lips it completes the look.

Comenzando con un ambiente más nocturno, usaría esto en una cita o incluso para salir a tomar algo con las chicas. Hay algo en un atuendo blanco y negro que me encanta. Realmente me gusta el contraste de jeans negros rotos con una camisa blanca. Por supuesto, para salir por la noche tuve que ir con labios rojos para completar el look.

Casual work wear

I have always worked in more casual office where i don’t have to be super dressed up which is great. Wanted to show how i like to style the white shirt more relax for work. The look is already relax because the fit of the shirt is quite oversize i paired up with some cute ankle printed pants and my favorite shoe style at the moment is a loafer slide effortlessly chic. I’m a huge fan of the front being tucked in an the back out/loose.

Siempre he trabajado en oficinas más informales, donde no tengo que estar súper vestida, lo cual es genial. Quería mostrar cómo me gusta utilizar la camisa blanca más relajada para el trabajo. El look ya es relajado porque el ajuste de la camisa es bastante grande, lo combiné con unos lindos pantalones estampados en los tobillos y mi estilo de zapato favorito en este momento es un loafer slip ons.

Accessories make a difference

This is by far my all time favorite way to style the boyfriend shirt with a nice pair of mom style jeans. Like i mentioned i am a big fan of oversize clothes i love the look of mom jeans and a white shirt and you can change the look so easily just by finishing the outfit with different accessories. One of my many ways to change an outfit is by simply changing the bag, shoes and jacket and you have a complete different look.

soy una gran fanática de la ropa oversize, me encanta el look de los mom jeans y una camisa blanca. puedes cambiar el look tan fácilmente con solo terminar el look con diferentes accesorios. Una de mis muchas formas de cambiar un atuendo es simplemente cambiando el bolso, los zapatos y la chaqueta y tienes un look completamente diferente.

white shirt and a skirt

Of course i had to style this shirt with a skirt to show the many ways you can rock a white shirt. I tied the shirt in the front to give it a more crop top vibe (more fitted)

Por supuesto, tuve que diseñar esta camisa con una falda para mostrar las muchas formas en que puedes lucir una camisa blanca. Amarre la camisa en la parte delantera para darle un aire más corto (más ajustado)
