Packing Tips for Tavel

Traveling is something we all look forward to, whether it be for weddings, family events or just getaways with family and friends. However, packing can be pretty painful, particularly that toiletry bag, with bottles of body lotion, face cream, eye cream, make-up remover, after-sun lotion, lip balm, shaving cream, hand cream, hair conditioner and the list goes on. All these products take up quite some space in your suitcase, not to mention the weight, and you can forget about carrying your bag on.

So what can you do to pack smarter, and still include all those products that keep your skin and hair glowing? The answer: Cocovit Coconut Oil.

This one product is all you need when traveling. Here are ways this jar of jar of goodness can be used while being away from home:

Moisturizer: Apply Cocovit Coconut Oil on your skin (face, body, hands and feet) to keep hydrated and moisturized, while helping restore your skin’s moisture and thus reducing the visible fine lines and wrinkles. The oil has excellent natural anti-oxidant protection, and helps prevent free radical damage and stalls premature aging. Cocovit Coconut Oil also helps strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cells on the skin's surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture. The oil soaks into your skin quickly, making it super soft. It’s great for all skin types, even sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Hair Conditioner: The perfect intensive hair conditioner and nourishing oil when you’re away from home and in new climates your hair is not used to. To use as a hair mask, simply rub the oil into your dry hair overnight or for a few hours before showering and washing out. You can also apply about ¼ teaspoon to your hair after each wash (primarily from the middle of your strands down to the end, staying clear of the roots). This will soften and add shine while you’re vacationing.

Massage Oil: Traveling often consists of hours of sightseeing, which usually leads to some achy feet. So what do can you do to relax them? Take a dab of coconut oil to massage them and relieve the aches. Add benefit: it moisturizes your feet/heels at the same time!

Makeup & Eye Makeup Remover: Dip a cotton ball in Cocovit Coconut Oil to remove make-up, even waterproof mascara without irritating or drying out your skin. You’ll feel fresh and clean without using any chemicals.

Sunscreen: Cocovit Coconut Oil can be used as sunscreen, working as SPF 4. Granted it doesn’t have the highest SPF but it’s a great base layer since it’s natural!

Lip Balm: Being in unfamiliar climates can often cause lips to chap. Dab Cocovit Coconut Oil on your lips as needed to keep them soft and moisturized.

Helps with Cold or Flu: Being sick while traveling is the absolute worst. Stir in a tablespoon of Cocovit Coconut Oil into hot tea to help speed recovery from cold or flu. It also soothes a sore throat.

Sunburn: Most of us have a love/hate relationship with the sun – love that sun, but hate the burn! Cocovit Coconut Oil can help heal sunburn. Apply directly on the burn every couple of hours.

Shaving: Use it in the shower as a replacement for shaving cream, or apply it before shaving, as a pre-shave preparation. Men can use this on their face, and for ladies it is super soothing on legs and the bikini area.

Mosquito Bites: Rub coconut oil on your mosquito bites to reduce the itch. Safe on kids as well.

Hand & Cuticle Cream: Use Cocovit Coconut Oil as a natural, anti-bacterial hand and cuticle cream. If you wash your hands often or your cuticles just need a little extra tender care, apply the oil to your fingers twice daily to keep them soft, supple and nourished. You will notice the difference in just a few days. Also, apply the oil on your hands every night before going to bed, you’ll love the results!
