Beauty Secret: Coconut Oil

Healthy Housewife Marzia Prince shares her favorite beauty tips involving coconut oil. Her first secret is oil pulling. Take a tablespoon of coconut oil, stick it in your mouth, and let it liquefy. Swoosh it around in your mouth for 15–20 minutes, then spit it out. Oil pulling helps freshen breath, cleans out bacteria, and is great for healthy teeth, gums, tongue, and throat.


Marzia's next secret involves putting coconut oil directly on her skin. After showering, instead of using lotions or creams, she smothers coconut oil topically. Marzia has noticed her skin is more supple and smooth. It also has a great, light smell.

Marzia's last secret is using coconut oil for beautiful, shiny hair. Start by heating the oil (over a stove or in your hands) until it liquefies. (In the summer it's possible your house is warm enough for it to already be liquid, in which case, use as is.) Let it cool a bit, then put the oil on your hands, and run it through your hair, then use a brush to brush it through. Wrap your hair in a towel and leave for 20–30 minutes, then wash the oil out. Your hair will feel thicker and healthier. Marzia urges you to try these three simple secrets. They certainly work for her.
