@craftylish:  Awesome thanks for sharing!

My skin saw major improvements with simply drinking a TON more water (which has helped with appetite also) and coconut oil 🙂

I’m not sure if it’s a beauty secret… lol

but I’ve been doing Shakeology for about 3 months. I have it for breakfast every day. And I’ve noticed my skin has been a lot better (and it was never BAD to begin with).

I also just do the whole washing your face thing and put some lotion on before I go to bed 🙂

I also agree with @ValerieBee03: when you drink more water, you definitely notice a difference in how you fee. Unfortunately, I can’t use coconut oil because I’m allergic to coconuts! What the heck?! lol
but my future mother-in-law uses is as lotion and loves it!

@cmeeks:  Oh no! I loooove coconut oil and I use it on everything and cook with it! That would suck

@ValerieBee03:  lol, it’s not too bad. I guess it’s because I’ve never been able to use it, that I don’t know what I’m missing! haha. but I just use olive oil. That’s healthy too! 🙂

@craftylish:  I did green smoothies for a while and then fell off the wagon, I should really start again because they are wonderful!

@craftylish:  I cook with it like any other oil. But I also,

1. Use it on my hair like a hair mask. Just pour it on and put it in a shower cap for 45 mins to an hour. Then shampoo.

2. I put about a cup in a hot bath and soak in it 🙂 makes my skin sooo smooth and evens my skin tone (super important since I’m so pale lol)

3. I “whip it” with a mixer when it’s in it’s solid state, add some drops of vitamin E oil and have an AWESOME body lotion/moisturizer.

4. I melt it and  put it straight on my face, lips, and eye lashes before bed. Clears up my skin and helps my eyelashes grow 🙂
