Here at the Salon many of us, after a lifetime of use, are becoming more aware of the damage chemicals are causing to not only our environment but to our bodies as well. So from time to time we’ll offer a tip on a way you can remove some of these chemicals from your daily life.
There has been a recent surge in the use of coconut oil in many people’s skin care routines that you can incorporate into your week that will leave your skin radiant without chemically laced drug store brands. Dr. Axe likes the way coconut oil converts to energy faster than other fats, and promotes its many health benefits.
You won’t need a strigil but you can clean your skin like an ancient Greek by rubbing coconut oil directly to the skin. It works to clean and moisturize the skin, and is both simple and efficient.
Simply rub coconut oil directly into your skin in a swirling motion. As you massage the oil into your skin, the oil is simultaneously adding its nutrients while pulling dirt and impurities out of the skin. Gently rinse the face with warm water and towel dry. Your skin will be left feeling soft, clean, and fresh.
Coconut oil is also valuable in the kitchen and promotes good health in many areas.
So how do you use coconut oil?
