Why I Replaced My Face Cleanser With Coconut Oil

When was the last time you had an important meeting or a date and you were not happy with your face?

Maybe I’m the only one but I used to get break outs, dry patches, oily patches, and worse. At one point I had 18 different face cleaning products in my bathroom. I also used an ionic face cleaner.

About 8 months ago my sister told me she had read that coconut oil could be used to clean skin, kill bacteria and moisturize. I didn’t pay too much attention to what she said because she also used to wash her hair in beer. Hey, beer may be a great shampoo. But I’ll never know because I am not doing that.

Two months go by and we are having a cookout at her house. The guys are tossing a ball around and we are just talking and enjoying a cocktail. I suddenly realized that her face and skin looked amazing. I mean it was so noticeable you couldn’t miss it.

When I asked her about it and she told me it was because of coconut oil I decided to take her seriously. No one on the planet has worse skin than me and my face is always a struggle to maintain.

If you look in my bathroom today you will only seem some hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, make up, and feminine hygiene products. I replace all of those facial scrubs and creams with one thing. Coconut oil. It’s my facial scrub, it’s my moisturizer and it’s my breakout insurance.

It really is that amazing. For me it has been life changing. I have a pretty simple but effective cleansing routine I use and I am happy to share it with you. Give it a try and let me know your results! Check out this coconut face cleansing routine tutorial video.

I use it religiously, love it. I’m 34 and my skin looks better than when I was in my 20’s.

I use coconut oil for everywhere multiple times a day!

I’ve recently stated doing this and I’m amazed at the clean feeling of my skin. I’ve been using coconut oil for years but using it as my exclusive cleanser is one of the best uses I’ve found!

I have a friend that uses it on her face too & loves it. I would but I’ve been “blessed” with adult acne & coconut oil will clog your pores so it’s not recommended. :-/ Total bummer

Danielle Keller via Facebook says

There are so many other oils besides coconut that can be great for your skin too. Coconut works great for my whole body except for my face. I use jojoba for my face, and it works wonderfully.

The only thing I put on my family’s skin❤️

Coconut oil is HIGHLY comedogenic, so for those who are prone to breakouts this is an enemy.

I’ve read that fractionated coconut oil, however, is noncomedogenic.

Hemp seed oil and pumpkin seed oil are noncomedogenic as well.

A quick Google search will tell you the properties of different oils so you can play around and see what your skin likes best. It’s a little irritating to me that coconut oil is so highly touted for use on the face. So many people may run out and try it, oblivious to the fact it may be a nightmare for them.

I encourage everyone to do their own research! 🙂

I am 59. Will this work for me? If not, what should I use?

Anyone else notice that the makeup tutorial is using makeup tested on animals …..

Maggie Bowen via Facebook says

I’m all for coconut oil, but not for cosmetics that are tested on animals. I realize that’s not the point of the article, but still! All that work to have nice, glowing skin only to cover your face with chemical-laden makeup anyways? I don’t get it! BUT coconut oil is amazing stuff!

Nonye Alozie, my face would be a disaster if I tried this ?

Shelley Neill via Facebook says

I read so many things saying it can cause really bad breakouts, though. :/

Nina Airica Russo via Facebook says

I use coconut oil as my only moisturiser since months and my skin never looked better. I had really bad acne and still some scars but at the time I decided to be vegan everything felt in place ☺️

D’Avianna Love another secret you kept from me!

Hallie Rose via Facebook says

I’m confused because everything I’ve read says coconut oil is really comedogenic?

Katie Rose via Facebook says

I’ve been washing my face with coconut oil for 6 days now and I had a break out that is hopefully going away (I read that may happen at first) but my skin doesn’t feel very nice. Kind of scaly.
I have combo skin, dry in some places, oily in others.

Best makeup remover ever!

Holly Autumn Kronika via Facebook says

I started using coconut oil thinking it would help my skin bc I started breaking out…it made it WAY WORSE!!! As soon as I stopped…so did my breakouts. Like..the night I stopped…I woke up with better skin. So beware…it’s not for everyone!
