On the occasion of World Coconut Day, we decided to pay homage to the mighty coconut! This is one item which has always been a major part of every Indian household! Dadis swear by coconut oil when it comes to giving a ‘champi’ and the Mallus can’t imagine their food without it! We give you more reasons to make this mighty item and its by-products a part of your day-to-day life.
1. Move over highlighters and illuminators!
Just an itsy bitsy amount of coconut oil on your cheekbones can act like the perfect highlighter and give you the perfect cheekbones. Forget about spending a bomb on your super expensive highlighters and illuminators.
2. A whole lot of goodness in my morning black coffee!
Nutritionists swear by this trick! Use a spoonful of edible coconut oil in your morning black coffee and watch yourself lose inches magically! Apparently, coconut oil is the sort of good fat that we need in our lives!
3. Say no to harsh make up cleaners!

P.S. Thanks Maa! I love you for this one!
