I tried shaving with coconut oil and here’s what happened

Can you even remember your life before coconut oil? Dry hair? Coconut oil. Cooking a healthy meal? Coconut oil. Need help with absolutely anything? Just add coconut oil.

We’ve tried it on our skin, hair and even to help whiten our teeth but the latest craze? Using it to shave.

According to the beauty experts, switching your shaving cream for coconut oil is a sure-fire way to keep your skin happy.

Coconut oil does have hydrating properties and so similarly to a moisturiser, can be used to hydrate the skin without having to use any other additives such as alcohol,” says Dr Yannis Alexandrides.

“It’s also naturally antimicrobial so it’s great for killing off any surface bacteria that gathers on your face during the day.”

Sick of being left with an irritating shaving rash, I decided to give coconut oil a whirl and after reading rave reviews online, I had high hopes.
