Tip Tuesday: Coconut Milk for Skincare

Coconut milk can be found in most grocery stores in a can and usually runs less than $2 a can. It can be used for skin and hair care as a natural moisturizer. 

1. It can be used as an ingredient in homemade shampoo with castile soap,  like a I mentioned in last times Tip Tueday. 

2.  Use it as a softening bath soak. Add some coconut milk to your bath water and it will leave your entire body soft. 

3. Use as a facial mask. I have mixed coconut milk, raw honey, and a few drops of lemon juice for a homemade facial mask. It leaves your skin soft, cleansed, and bright. 

4. Use it as a makeup remover. Mix coconut milk and olive oil to use as a makeup remover. It even will remove eye makeup.

5. Use as a sunburn soother. Mix rose water with coconut milk and put in a spray bottle. Spritz on sunburned skin for soothing relief.
