Coconut Butter Smells Good, Is Cheap, Moisturizes


For the past month, my roommate has been doing the Clean detox program. This means our apartment is filled with things like maca smoothies and flax tea, which aren't my thing. However, I can 100 percent get behind her use of coconut butter (or coconut oil) as a body moisturizer. It costs about $10 at health food stores, and it's solid until heated. Apply it to skin and it melts, leaving skin smooth and softly scented. You'll need to let it absorb before getting dressed, but if you have seriously dry skin and want to go the natural route, it's worth a try.
