Coconut Oil Face Wash
I don’t use face scrub every night. I use plain coconut oil as a face wash, and then every few days use the scrub to make the skin soft and smooth. If you are just wanting to cleanse, scoop some coconut oil into your hands and rub it together a little bit. Coconut oil is usually firm in the jar (unless your house is hot), but it will soften up quickly in your hands. Cover your face with the coconut oil and then take a warm wash cloth and let it rest on your face for 30 seconds or so to open up your pores. Then wipe it all off! You will be amazed at how well coconut oil cleanses your makeup off! It even works with waterproof mascara! I have skin that can be oily sometimes, so I was hesitant to use an oil on my face in the beginning, but I learned that oil actually attracts oil, so it does a great job of cleaning all the oils and makeup off of your face. And it has never left my face feeling greasy. I usually give it at least 10 minutes to absorb before applying any makeup
Coconut Oil Face Scrub
For a facial scrub, you will mix 1 Tablespoon coconut oil with 1 Tablespoon baking soda. Some people use sugar, which I think is great for the body, but a little too rough for the skin. If you decide to use sugar, use brown sugar.
