Ditch your usual skin care routine and switch to an all natural one. Coconut oil is known for its skin benefits. A more natural and pure way to use it, is by adopting cold pressed coconut oil. This type of oil is unbleached and unrefined, which gives you coconut oil with all the nutrients intact. It is widely used for both cooking and beauty purposes. Here are some ways to include cold pressed coconut oil in your beauty routine and make your skin glow from within. 

Oatmeal And Coconut Oil

If you have an acne prone skin and experience breakouts every now and then, this is the remedy for you. With its antibacterial properties, cold pressed coconut oil will cure acne, while oatmeal will restore the natural PH levels in your skin. 

Ingredients required: 1 tbsp cold pressed coconut oil. 2 tbsp oats, 2 tbsp cucumber puree and water. 

Steps to make the mask- 

  • Step 1- Start by mixing oats and cucumber puree together. 
  • Step 2- Add 1-2 tbsp of water, if the mixture is too thick. 
  • Step 3- Now add melted coconut oil and combine everything together. 
  • Step 4- Use an applicator to evenly apply the mask all over your face. 
  • Step 5- Let it sit for about 15-20 minutes and then wash off. 
  • Step 6- Gently massage in circular motions while washing off your face. 

Make sure you don’t scrub harshly, as the roughness of oatmeal might harm your face. After washing, the coconut oil will leave a natural moisturising effect on your face.

Steps to make the mask-

  • Step 4- Now apply it on your face, arms or wherever you are tanned. 
  • Step 5- Let it sit for 15 minutes and then wash with cold water.
