Coconut oil contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, pretty amazing right? Who doesn't want that in their skin care? It is high in vitamin E and is extremely moisturizing. The fatty acids in the oil can strengthen the skin's barrier to lock in moisture. I suggest you go with an organic option so you can rest assured that it doesn't contain any pesticides or other toxins.
There are so many ways you can use this product in your skin care routine. You can cleanse your face with this product - it is great for removing makeup. You can use it to create a homemade exfoliant by melting the product and adding salt or sugar and vanilla or an essential oil for smell. You can use it as a moisturizer just by rubbing it into your skin.
After one try I was kind of hooked. My under eyes get super dry. I used my facial cleanser and then I took a small amount and rubbed it under my eyes. Instantly my under eye area felt moisturized. Obviously you can't use too much product because your skin can only absorb so much. But I am obsessed. I also love the fact that I know there are no harsh chemicals on my skin, especially when it comes to my face. Not to mention this jar was only $7.99. I have also tried it as moisturizer and my skin felt so incredibly soft.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
