With all the hustle and bustle of the work week, and the drying weather that’s wreaked havoc on your skin, it can be hard to pull it all together for a flawless date night finish. No need to fret, beauties! We’ve designed the perfect coconut-fueled regimen for a guaranteed good time.
Breathe, Relax, Repeat
This prep-time is meant for you to focus on you with a mini-pampering session. Start with a lavender-infused coconut oil and smooth a dime-sized amount over thirsty skin for an alluring glow that lasts from “hello” to a goodnight smooch. Bonus: Lavender is soothing and comforting, so if you’ve got first date jitters, it will help keep you calm and relaxed.
Skin So Soft
Pull out the razor and prepare to tackle those prickly legs! Now that No-Shave November has come to an end, tonight calls for some much needed leg-scaping. With some whipped body butter in hand, sweep a sizable amount over legs and get to swiping away unwanted fuzz. There’s no need to worry about razor burn or moisturizer after thanks to, you guessed it, coconut oil. Revel in the glory of silky smooth limbs!
A pretty pout is always in style, but this time of year it’s harder than ever to achieve. Whether you’ll be kissing your date’s cheek, lips, or just the rim of a wine glass tonight, reach for some exfoliating sugar scrub to reveal healthy, moisturized lips. Scoop a small amount onto your finger and gently scrub lips to a smooth finish. A quick splash with warm water and you have the perfect foundation for a darker lip. Don’t forget to oil pull for long lasting fresh breath and all natural whitening that works!
Kiss the Cook
Staying in instead? Heat it up in the kitchen with some of the yummiest coconut-infused recipes by substituting coconut oil. They always say the best way to the heart is through the stomach! Here are a couple of our favorites:
You may be exhausted by the end of the night from having so much fun, but remember to take care of your skin before slipping off to dreamland. Coconut oil is truly the only product you need because it removes makeup, moisturizes skin, and nourishes the delicate eye area. It’s even safe for sensitive or acne-prone skin. As a final step, you can use the body butter on your feet, cover with socks, and wake up naturally soft from head to toe.
Sweet dreams love birds…
