Coconut Oil to the Rescue

February 16, 2015

Over at One Green Planet, you can read a list of five ways coconut oil can help improve your skin (and health)! Besides the great benefits of cooking with this oil, it's a good non-toxic addition to your skin care routine. 

Our favorite on the list? Since it's winter, of course, we like using it as a face scrub for dryness or acne. "Mix coconut oil with some coconut sugar or some ground nuts and seeds, which both provide minerals to the skin. You can also use organic coffee grounds or pink sea salt as well. Make an exfoliating scrub and rub on your face to let sit for a minute. Then wash gently and your skin will be fresh, smooth and healthier afterwards!"
