1. Deep-condition your hair overnight

Coconut oil is able to penetrate hair and prevent protein loss according to research. To deep condition your hair, apply a quarter-size amount of Florida Glow to your hair and comb it. Place a soft towel over your pillow or sleep in a shower cap. In the morning, shampoo as usual with a gentle cleanser.

2. Tame frizzy hair

If you struggle with taming your hair, coconut oil can help. Calm your frizzy, flyaway strands with just a bit of Florida Glow to leave your hair looking smooth and polished.

3. Add shine to your hair

Smooth a tiny amount of Florida Glow onto your ends of your hair to add a little shine. Just add a dab so your hair doesn’t appear greasy.

5. Clean your face

Because coconut oil is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and moisturizing. Use a tiny bit of Florida Salt Scrubs to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your face. Simply rub the scrub in small, circular motions over your face and neck, giving yourself a gentle massage as you go. When you’re done, wash off the residue then follow up with Florida Glow.

6. Exfoliate your lips 

Fend off chapped and flaky lips with coconut oil. Put a dab of Florida Salt Scrub on your finger or on a soft toothbrush and then use a circular motion to lightly exfoliate your lips. Let the mixture sit on your mouth for a minute and then remove it with a damp cloth.

7. Moisturize your lips

Once your lips are exfoliated, use Florida Kiss Lip Balm made with coconut oil, Vitamin E,  Comfrey extract, and SPF 15 to moisturize and protect your lips.

8. Soothe dry hands

The worst feeling is when you’re hands are dry – it seems like after you wash them with hand soap they get even more dry, right? That’s where Florida Salt Scrubs comes in. With the moisturizing benefits of coconut oil and the fact that it’s anti-bacterial, it’s the perfect solution to soothing dry hands. Use it instead of a normal hand soap to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your hands. Follow up with Florida Glow coconut oil spray lotion to soak in the moisture all day long.

9. Shave your legs

Reduce the risk of ingrown hairs and razor burn with coconut oil. Start with your favorite Florida Salt Scrub to exfoliate your legs. Rub the salt scrub all over your legs then rinse off. Spray Florida Glow all of your legs and shave with your regular razor. The coconut oil is anti-bacterial and moisturizing to provide a clean, comfortable shave. Once you’re done, rinse off then follow up again with Florida Glow to add shine (without the grease) to your legs.

10. Moisturize your body

Coconut oil can be helpful in increasing hydration and reducing water loss in seriously dry skin. Wash your body with our handmade coconut oil Florida Bar Soap to cleanse your body while not depleting your skin of its water. Moisturize your body with Florida Glow coconut oil moisturizing lotion to replenish moisture.

11. Nourish cracked cuticles

Massaging coconut oil into your cuticles and the skin around your nails can bring some much-needed moisture to your nail beds. Use the Florida Glow to moisturize the skin around your nails to help with cracked skin, prevent hang nails, and have healthier looking nail beds.
