Oooh Romeooo: The What, Why, and How
Let me quickly open your reading appetite: Coconut oil is increasing in popularity in cooking… but is that all?
So they say, “Coconut oil is good for the skin.” I think It depends on the kind of coconut oil you use. Coconut oil is incredibly rich in healthy fat. The way I do it for you has a lengthy process. Hours if I may say. By heating coconut oil above its melting point, long-chain fatty acids and lauric acid can be removed from the remaining mixture. These two elements have a higher melting point than medium-chain fatty acids, resulting in a faster conversion from liquid to solid. The solid part - or the fraction - of the oil can be removed and the liquid oil remains.
In the Philippines, although coconut is everywhere and anyone can just climb a tree and get to drink one whole coconut, it is extremely important to understand how to make the oil be odourless and non-greasy as we consider the heat of this tropical country. I made it easy for the skin to absorb the oil faster without feeling greasy and less likely to clog your pores - to emphasize it is organically made.
To add, fractionated oil can also be stored longer than the usual coconut oil.
My only mission is to simplify your skincare routine. Routine is like a muscle and brain memory that you’re body needs and wants to do without having to even force yourself to do it. In this day and age, the more we use different products, the more our skin ages faster. Plus, in a fast-paced environment nowadays, it’s barely achievable to have a real relaxing skincare routine that could take at least 30 minutes.
Here are some of the things that you can do with the Oil-in-One:
Use as a skin moisturizer. Not everyone can see how organic fractionated coconut oil can be put onto one’s skin, especially with the stereotype of how oil can be… Well, oily. Yet, it is so rich in hydration properties that not many moisturizers cannot provide. These properties help to soothe and soften your skin faster as well as prevent itchiness and razor bumps after shaving.
Use as a hair conditioner. Spray it to your hair as is or add it to your preferred shampoo. There’s no harm in doing so as it is organically made. It helps to bring back nutrients from your hair and allows it to grow healthier naturally.
Use as an add-on to your sunscreen. Sunscreens are great and I totally love them! Remember, the components of sunscreens are to keep your skin from burning and leaving them too dehydrated but I can tell you that it is not enough. With temperatures rising up to 40 degrees, you may want to consider doubling your skin hydrating products. With Oil-in-One, it is truly a good add-on as moisturizing is just the main component of it.
Use as a nail strengthener. Studies show that coconut oil has a moisturizing effect and is ideal for treating brittle, cracked nails and damaged cuticles. This is an ideal skin barrier that contains multiple fatty acids that act as a transepidermal water loss barrier.
Cuticles are an important part of nail care, but they are often overlooked. From excessive hand washing (absolutely recommended) to cold weather, the cuticle may fall off, become dehydrated and be chipped. Coconut oil helps to return the cuticle to the shape of the tip-top.
I have tried massaging my nails with the Oil-in-One every single night and I can attest that with Oil-in-One’s hydrating factor, it is easier to have my nails manicured with organic or vegan-based nail polishes at the salon.
Did you know that this fractionated oil can help prevent nail fungus too? Yes, indeed.
Use as a make-up remover. I mean come on… I can tell that a lot of people did not even think about purchasing these removers and did not consider their ingredients. It’s true that many removers add moisturizing effects on the skin but because the oil I made is from 100% coconut, it is antibacterial, anti-yeast, and also works as a great first-aid cream. Because of its detergent effect, it also works well as a makeup remover. Here’s how you can use it as a make-up remover:
Use coconut oil in the same way you use cleansing oil. No abrasive washcloths or cotton pads are required.
When the coconut oil is in a natural solid-state, liquefy it by hand. Next, apply gently to dry skin, paying particular attention to dark makeup.
When the makeup is fully melted, rinse your face with lukewarm water and tap it to dry.
As an undereye and natural lip care. So, don’t be scared to even put it on your lips and your dark circled-eye anytime you want. Massage these areas for a bit with the oil and voila! You’re now three steps closer to keeping that face glowy, smooth, and kissable.
