It's even the main ingredient in this DIY deodorant. It also does double duty in the bathroom as a cheap and very effective moisturizer, and now...face wash. Who knew?
You're thinking, that can't be good for my face right? It's oil! Won't that make my face oily? Science 101; like fights like - in this case, oil fights oil. I've been using it as a face wash and eye makeup remover for a few months now and my skin has never looked better. I used to get random breakouts, and they've drastically improved since I switched to this do-it-all multi-tasking oil. My skin feels plump and my skin tone is also more even.
How to do it:
- wet your face
- scoop up a small amount (1/2 tsp.) with your fingers
- massage into your face like you would with any other cleanser
- rinse off any makeup
- wet a washcloth with hot water and place it over your face, leaving it there until it cools (a few seconds)
- exfoliate off any excess with the washcloth and you're done
Following this regimen you'll no longer need a toner or a moisturizer either - more money and time saved!
Some other uses for coconut oil:
Powerful hand and foot moisturizer
Random rash remover (anytime the kids get random rashes, I put coconut oil on it)
Curly hair definer (I use this on my baby girl all the time)
