cold pressed raw coconut oil is literally the only form of moisturizer i use on my face, and i'll never go back to creams or lotions again. works wonders. wash your face with whatever cleanser you normally use, then follow with raw coconut oil just as you would a face cream. ahh nature.
Turns out coconut oil is a great-all-in-one. It is an anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral. It improves nutrient absorption. It can be used for cooking. It is a lip balm, moisturizer, shaving cream, deep treatment conditioner, makeup remover, body scrub (mixed with sugar makes a great exfoliant), bug bite balm, Athlete's Foot treatment, and canker sore treatment. It has also been proven to boost metabolism and aid in digest.

Previous pinner said: A few months ago I stopped using facewash. I use a scrub of baking soda and coconut oil every few days. On the days in between, just coconut oil. I use tiny amounts - a pinch of soda, and a bit of coconut oil the size of a pencil eraser. Wash in gentle, circular motions and rinse very well. Your face may seem oily afterward, but within a few minutes the oil is absorbed and your skin is glowing. Pinner says: My face used to break out regularly. Now, almost never!
If you wear make up, wash your face with a light face wash first. Then, wet your face and pour about 1 teaspoon of pure honey into the palm of your hand and put it directly onto your face. Rub all over your skin but avoid your eyes. Leave on for about 1-2 minutes and then rinse completely. For a deeper clean, leave the honey on your face for about 20-30 minutes. I follow this with coconut oil to moisturize my face. I have really bad blemishes and this has done wonders for my skin!!!
Serious eye cream. It is super simple to make using only two ingredients - coconut oil and Vitamin E. Nice website for natural cleaners and other recipes. Coconut oil is a protective antioxidant and supports tissue repair and healing. I like to add a little EMU oil and vitamin A as well.
