Pour a small amount of the oil on your skin and keep massaging it in circles all over your body. It helps to warm the oil a bit before you start massaging. Also, remember to use only as much oil as your skin can effortlessly absorb. 

Coconut oil body scrub 

You can mix either salt or sugar with coconut oil to create an all-natural body scrub. Say goodbye to dead and dry skin and gently massage it all over your body and face. Let the mixture sit on your skin for about five minutes before using a damp towel to wipe it. 

A natural makeup remover 

Instead of spending a bomb on makeup removers, bring home a bottle of coconut oil. Take a small amount of it on your cotton ball and wipe the skin using it until all your makeup is gone. Finally, wash your face to remove all traces of coconut oil from it.

Coconut oil face mask 

Start mixing one tablespoon of coconut oil with seven drops of vitamin E oil and put that on the face. Before washing it off with lukewarm water, let it sit for fifteen minutes. This natural mask will remove acne and puffiness around your eyes.
