If you have followed my blog for the past 6 months, you may have clued in that I have become obsessed with coconut oil. It is so awesome for skin! I have now thrown out all facial products and stick with just coconut oil, sugar, honey, and a few select essential oils to complete every step of a DIY facial from home! (Hint: you don’t even have to use essential oils if you don’t want to or don’t have any. This will still be a success). I’m sure all the skincare companies are hating that more and more people are discovering coconut oil, because I’m shouting it from the rooftops! I LOVE the stuff! And after reading all about it being anti-bacterial AND anti-fungal (among a list of other benefits), it makes sense why it rocks so much. Check out all my recipes below!
