11 Coconut Oil Beauty Hacks We Love for Fall

Is there anything coconut oil can’t do? From your head to your toes, the superfood and green beauty’s “holy grail” oil remains one of the healthiest ways to treat yo’ self to some much-deserved pampering. Here are 11 coconut oil beauty hacks, products, and uses that we’re so here for this season.


Coconut oil is ace at removing makeup — even waterproof mascara. Try warming it between your hands or swiping it onto a cotton round to get rid of products and impurities at the end of the day. Hint: Packaging is everything when it comes to on-the-go beauty, which makes a tube extra nifty. Brit + Co Pick: Conscious Coconut Organic Coconut Oil ($17)

clean your face

Kickstart your double cleanse with the naturally anti-bacterial and non-comedogenic oil. It removes all traces of makeup, dirt, and acne-causing bacteria when you rinse away with water. Plus, it’s jam-packed with reparative antioxidants. Brit + Co Pick:Kopari Coconut Cleansing Oil ($32)

sanitize your brushes

One of the best ways to minimize breakouts is to take care of your makeup brushes on the reg. This ah-mazing DIY recipe adds in fresh lemon juice to give your beauty tools a thorough cleansing. Brit + Co Pick: Artisana Organics Raw Virgin Coconut Oil ($20 for 10 packets) (Photo via Brit + Co)

preserve youth

Green beauty lines know the miracle-ingredient can increase skin firmness and improve elasticity. Natural blends using the coconut elixir even serve as retinol alternatives, increasing cell turnover, evening tone, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Brit + Co Pick: Eminence Organic Skin Care Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer ($58)

on-the-go oral health

Oil pulling is known to be a super-charged Ayurvedic health hack to freshen breath, whiten teeth, and improve overall gum health. Swish the slick substance around for up to 20 minutes to detox, then get ready for a mouth-full of benefits. Brit + Co Pick: Keeko Pulling Oil ($29 for 14 sachets)

heal dry or cracked lips

Rehabbing dry or cracked lips back to life is a must during the upcoming cold weather months. But when our cure-all comes as a lipstick? That’s even better. This beauty staple relies on coconut oil to lock moisture in. In other words, it’s perf for your pucker. Smooch! Brit + Co Pick: Jouer Cosmetics Skinny Dip Long-Wear Lip Topper ($16)

smoothe your strands

Coconut oil-infused hair products leave you with a head full of soft, smooth, and healthy hair. Pick up a leave-in product that features your go-to solution, or make your own with The Every Girl’s DIY Coconut Oil and Honey Hair Mask — either way, you’ll be hooked. Brit + Co Pick: Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Condition Spray ($20)

soften your cuticles

Use the tiniest of dollops straight from the jar or a coconut oil-based formula to tend to your cuticles throughout the day. It leaves them softened, hydrated, and halts peeling in its tracks. Brit + Co Pick: Aila Cosmetics Coconut Nail & Cuticle Therapy ($20)

stay refreshed

Whether you whip up your own DIY deodorant or you’re looking to purchase some from your local drugstore, options that add a hint of this everyday savior soothe sensitive skin and sidestep discoloration. From Sephora to Sprouts, aluminum-free, all-natural odor protection is at the ready. Brit + Co Pick: Agent Nateur & Shiva Rose Holi(Rose) Deodorant ($26)

exfoliate + hydrate dry skin

Once the temps start to dip, it’s time for luxurious spa-level treatments in the comfort of your own home. Exfoliate with a coconut oil-infused body polish to buff away dead cells and smooth rough skin. Then soak in all the nutrients of a coconut bath soak for optimum pampering. Brit + Co Pick: Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish ($36) + Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak ($32)

prevent stretch marks

Coconut oil can help prevent stretch marks — even during pregnancy. The conditioning ingredient is also at work in cult-favorite firming creams for your entire body — not just your “bum bum”! Brit + Co. pick: Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($45)
