At Kapuluan, we have shown many coconut oil benefits and ways to use coconut oil in your routine. A lot of people have asked us about using coconut oil as a facewash. So naturally we’ve teamed up with Tienlyn Jacobson again to talk about why a coconut oil facewash is good for your skin and some tips that she does to maximize the effectiveness.
Here’s a summary of points from the video above.
Coconut Oil Facewash – Why?
- Coconut oil is the most effective way to remove makeup, if you’ve tried it, you probably have thrown out all of your makeup remover wipes already. None needed.
- Coconut oil doesn’t dry out your skin, it actually prevents your skin from overproducing oil.
- Coconut oil is a natural antiseptic. If you get a lot of breakouts it’s helpful for that and it also ends up being helpful to reduce redness and rosacea.
Coconut Oil Facewash – Which to use?
Make sure to use high quality coconut oil that’s raw and cold pressed and it has to be organic – no extra ingredients and chemicals please.
Coconut Oil Facewash – How to wash?
We recommend double washing, have you heard of it? It’s exactly like it sounds – wash, rinse, repeat. Because coconut oil is gentle and effective, it’s perfect for double washing.
Put a small amount of coconut oil in your hands.
*Tip: if coconut oil is solid, rub in your palm until it becomes a liquid.
Apply coconut oil to your face just like cleanser with circular motion, then rinse with water.
*Tip: take a warm washcloth let sit for 10-15 seconds before you rinse and use towel to remove any excess.
And that’s it, try it out for yourself!
