It is also anti-inflammatory so it helps to reduce redness inflammation from acne and helps to heal wounds already present on the skin. Coconut oil contains Vitamin E which helps to fortify and smooth your skin and also leaves it super soft, reducing the dryness we often endure during the winter. In addition, coconut oil also acts as a natural make-up remover, so don’t worry about that step of your regimen either! Put about a half tsp in your fingers, rub it on your face (dry) for about a minute. Then, take a hot, wet washcloth and wipe it away. Rinse.
