With our 100th post, I wanted to do something simple, yet wonderful. You will be totally shocked at how easy this coconut oil moisturizer is to make and how wonderful it feels on your face!
I have been using this for a week now, and I don't think I will ever go back to using store-bought moisturizers on my face. It seems odd putting oil on your face, and it does feel a little greasy at first, but it quickly soaks in and makes your face feel amazing. Especially when you wash your face at night then apply this coconut oil moisturizer, you will wake up to a non-greasy face that feels soft, rejuvenated, and even younger!
Many people believe that if you have oily skin, using a moisturizer is going to make it even more oily. What they don't realize is that when your skin gets stripped of it's natural oils (using soap or face wash), it needs to be replenished with moisture to balance things out. If you don't use moisturizer, your skin thinks it needs to produce enough to make up for the lack of natural oil and starts to produce excess oil causing greasy looking skin. If you keep your face moisturized, it will help balance things out and improve your oily skin.
Not only does coconut oil work well to repair your dry or oily skin, it's also been known to help
fine lines & deep wrinkles
and so much more!
Now keep in mind that you're going to want to use organic virgin coconut oil since you're not using it for cooking. If it's coconut oil that's made for cooking, it's generally going to have a higher melting temperature, which will solidify and fill your pores, causing breakouts. When using coconut oil on your skin, the organic virgin coconut oil will reduce breakouts rather than cause them. It may be a little pricier, but totally worth it. :)
Scoop your coconut oil into a mixing bowl.
Then whip it. That's it!
It will become smooth and creamy, very similar to lotion.
Spoon it into your container.
(I used a little tin that fits perfectly in my make-up bag for traveling.)
