Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has been called the all-in-one solution provider for hair, nails and diet.

As far as the skin is concerned, coconut oil provides smoothness and a glowing effect on the skin.

Take a tablespoon of coconut oil and apply it directly to the skin. Apply the oil on your face, neck, hands, feet or any part of the body.

You can apply it and leave it overnight or you can wash it off after an hour of application. However, an overnight application leads to better results.

Applying the oil helps repair the skin’s protective layer, keeping the moisture intact and the skin hydrated.

Coconut oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which help to condition the skin, giving it a light glow.

It also helps lighten the skin tone and remove any dark marks.

As an exfoliant, including coconut oil with other grainy materials like salt and sugar, can vastly improve the appearance of skin.

1. Mix the two ingredients together and apply it over your skin.

2. Leave on for 20 minutes, then wash off thoroughly.

It will help scrape off the excess dead skin and clean out any blocked pores without leaving the skin feeling irritated. This is an ideal beauty tip for those with acne.

Olive Oil

Olive oil has many nutritional benefits when consumed, but in the modern era, it is frequently being applied to the skin and hair due to its properties.

Olive oil is a great antioxidant, anti-inflammatory remedy and moisturiser.

It contains essential fatty acids and vitamins A, D, E, and K which help maintain the skin’s elasticity and to keep it smooth and glowing.

Simply massage a tablespoon of olive oil into the skin and leave for at least one hour before washing off.

You can also add olive oil to any face mask prior to applying.

Olive oil also has Vitamin E, which makes it an excellent product for brightening up the skin.


Cucumber is a great and refreshing vegetable which we love to eat but it also helps achieve glowing skin.
