It may seem counter productive to wash your face with Coconut oil because we were all taught to wash our faces with soap to get rid of as much oil as possible. Dry skin is better right? Wrong.

Coconut oil has many health benefits. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Which means that it fights against acne and eczema. It helps reduce fine lines and won't irritate your skin. Coconut oil is also a great natural moisturizer.

You will want to use a high quality, unrefined, organic Coconut oil. This is your face after all!

1. Take a quarter size amount of coconut oil in your palm then massage it on your face for about thirty seconds to one minute.

2. Take a warm washcloth and hold it on your face till it goes cold, about thirty seconds to one minute. The warm washcloth will help to open your pores and let the coconut oil in, helping to push out dirt.

3. Then gently wipe the coconut oil from your face.

If you feel like there is too much oil left on your face then get the washcloth warm again and repeat step 2. Your face should feel soft and moisturised.
