My Coconut Oil Love Affair

As I get older, it's more important that I find simple ways to make by beauty routing more "green". So imagine the joy when I found all the benefits of coconut oil. For cooking, right? Aha, we've only scratched the surface! This stuff is beyond amazing:

Believe me, I too was apprehensive about putting cooking oil on my face. However, after doing plenty of research , I found coconut oil to be anti-bacterial, has antioxidant properties, the best make up remover,  and jam packed with tons of other beneficial stuff for your skin!

It's about three months since I lathered up my face with heavenly goop, and my only regret is not starting sooner! If you're dry skinned, like me, this is an absolute beauty must. The scent is pleasant, but not too overbearing. Even if you don't like coconut, the scent fades very quickly and the benefits highly outweigh the scent! Like any oil, it is oily! (imagine that) I lather up before bed and wake up needed no moisturizer at all. I buy mine at Trader Joe's for about $6 for 16oz. I could write pages on uses for this stuff; however, for the sake of my fingers,  here  are some other great ideas!

                                          Have you ever tried coconut oil? Are you curious?
