Jessica's Coconut Oil Facial Cleanse

There is a major fad going on with coconut oil and it's a gooood thing! Not only does coconut oil have amazing health benefits internally, but there are tons externally. I know the idea of rubbing oil all over your face doesn't sound very appealing, but coconut oil actually helps to reduce acne and blemishes!  It’s loaded with Vitamin E, fatty acids, and a natural moisturizer. It’s anti-fungal, anti-oxidizing, anti-bacterial, and won’t change the PH balance of your skin.  It's loaded with antioxidants and leaves your skin silky smooth!   

I am always turned off by conventional facial cleansers due to the toxicity and overwhelming amount of harmful chemicals they contain. This is an amazing solution to truly cleansing your skin! 

You can easily leave this as a simple coconut oil cleanse or you can use essential oils to add even more nourishment and repair your skin.

Today’s recipe for face cleaning:

Organic Coconut Oil (Must be organic

 

Wet warm cloth

Dry soft cloth

Essential oils of choice. I am using

*Frankincense

*Melaleuca

*Lavender 

Start by using a warm, wet cloth and place a dab (or spread) on your face to open the pores.

Take a small amount of coconut oil, 3-5 drops of Frankincense essential oil, and gently massage into your skin for about 30 seconds.

Wait about 15-30 seconds and then use your washcloth lightly to remove additional oil. Don’t rub hard!

Your skin will absorb most of the oil, but you can also use a dry, soft cloth or towel, and gently dab on different areas of your face.

If you have any problem areas, like pimples or blemishes, you can use a few drops of melaleuca

and lavender to calm redness and help clear the skin. 

This is a wonderful daily solution to beautiful, clean skin!
