All Natural Beauty Product: Coconut Oil ...plus a crazy surprising use!10:58 PM
One of my favorite beauty tricks is super cheap and affordable. It barely makes a dent in your wallet. I love using coconut oil in my daily beauty routine. It is so moisturizing and the delicious smell makes it all the more better!

I'm guessing you are probably thinking, What?! That is crazy! But, I am serious though! Since coconut oil has antibacterial properties, it can be used as deodorant. The lauric acid helps kill the bacteria that causes you to smell bad when you sweat. Although coconut oil itself is not an antiperspirant, it will help you not smell bad when you sweat. To easily make a DIY deodorant, you can mix in one part baking soda to one part coconut oil to make an antiperspirant deodorant. The baking soda will help absorb the sweat and the coconut oil will prevent you from stinking and scaring away your friends. You can also just simply use coconut oil by itself as a deodorant, for it works too! Unless you sweat buckets, then I suggest adding in the baking soda and perhaps some arrowroot powder to help absorb sweat.
