A complete guide for using Virgin Coconut Oil in your beauty routine, with Made Mindful

 

 

Virgin Coconut Oil seems to be a polarizing ingredient for many beauty enthusiasts. Though it’s not exactly the best option for a face moisturizer, most especially for oily and acne-prone skin—as a comedogenic product, which can potentially clog pores and cause breakouts—we’re not discrediting its several benefits either. 

 

Introducing Made Mindful Virgin Coconut Oil, the brainchild of Bianca King, former actress and mindful living & fitness advocate. This powerhouse product can be used from head to toe in your beauty and self-care routine. From a body moisturizer to keep skin hydrated to a hair conditioner to protect your locks from humidity. Expeller-pressed from organic coconuts planted by Filipino farmers in Quezon and Bicol Region, it’s unprocessed and free of preservatives and additives.

Makeup Remover

If you want to switch to an all-natural product for your makeup remover, VCO breaks down lipid-soluble impurities like sebum and makeup, and easily targets waterproof products. It nourishes skin at the same time, too! Just remember to do a double cleanse using a gentle, water-based cleanser after for a thorough cleanse. 

 

Body Moisturizer 

The ultimate body moisturizer for all skin types, Made Mindful’s VCO provides good barrier control keeping skin hydrated and promotes skin collagen production, too. It even works for those with eczema, psoriasis and other skin issues. Simply lather half a teaspoon on your damp skin after a shower! You can also massage VCO into your cuticles to prevent dry skin and hangnails.

 

Formulated with fatty acids like Lauric acid, it has antimicrobial effects that fight infection-causing bacteria on skin. It aids in repairing skin damage, as well as in healing scars and wounds! 

 

After-sun Product

With summer in full swing, we’re highlighting essential products that pile on sun protection. Did you know that you can use Virgin Coconut Oil as a tanning oil after applying sunscreen? It’s also a great after-sun product to prevent dryness and peeling skin. Move over, aloe vera!

 

 

Hair Protectant and Conditioner 

If you’re struggling with brittle hair that’s prone to breakage, you’ll be relieved to know that VCO is more effective than other oils in locking in protein in hair. Using the product on your locks makes it both shinier and less prone to heat damage and split ends. It also protects your hair from humidity! 


Use it as a leave-in treatment before or after a shower for hair that’s used to coloring, heat and the sun. As a hair mask, massage warm VCO on your strands before your shower, taking care to avoid your scalp. Let it soak for 20 minutes, then rinse and shampoo as usual. As a conditioner after showering, you may comb in a pea-sized amount of VCO on your hair from mid-length to tip. You can also use it as a detangler for sticky hair from pool or salt water!
