I’ve spent most of my summers as a teenager sun bathing lying for hours, oily and greasy, smelling like coconut while listening to my 80’s favorites from my purple, boom box. I knew it was time to flip when I was fried on the one side. To add insult to injury, I was equally as bad at taking care of my skin at nights before bed and sadly, this bad habit stayed with me well into adulthood. Lucky for me, our skin can repair itself, and I am so glad because my skin hasn’t been as soft, my pores seemed larger, my skin was patchy and I’ve had some break-outs. Yuck!
Here’s the breakdown for morning and evening:
Wash my face with my coconut foaming cleanser from Tropical Traditions. I don’t use the pure coconut oil because it’s too greasy to wear under my make-up. For my moisturizer, I put 2 pumps of rosehip oil on and rub in completely as well as Tropical Traditions coconut lotion. I’m ready for make-up!
I use coconut oil all over my face and rub it it and you the steamed hot washcloth to press on my face (like a mini facial) to remove all my make-up. I make sure my make-up is all off and use the rosehip oil and this time use the pure coconut oil applying all over my face and neck as well as my feet before I climb into bed. It’s quite lovely…
