About a month ago, I was at my boyfriend’s house and managed to leave all of my skin care stuff at home… not a smart move.
I rummaged through my bag to try and find something, ANYTHING, that was going to be better than a partially dried out baby wipe and some water.
I found a gem. A little pot of product that I’d been using as facial moisturiser and hair mask but never even considered using as makeup remover…
COCONUT OIL !!!
My recent favourite ❤
Take an amount roughly the size of your thumb nail and rub it aaaaall over your pretty face. You’ll look like a greasy Alice Cooper, but it’s all part of the fun.
Wash it off with a warm, damp flannel and your skin will be squeaky clean and glowing.
I like to put an extra weeny bit on as a moisturiser just before bed because my skin gets crazy dry in the winter and oil on my skin isn’t as scary as I thought it would be.
(However, I have the food grade oil, which I’ve read is too intense for beauty purposes, so I’ll probably be getting a beauty grade pot next)
Anyway – not only can coconut oil be wonderful as part of your facial skin care routine, it’s a lovely body moisturiser and a really effective hair conditioner. My nails feel stronger, my eyelashes are longer and my hair is progressively becoming less and less dry.
I love it 😇❤
Have you used any oils before? Which ones and how did you find them?
Thank you for reading and have a good day 🌱 xx
