Step-by-Step Guide on Using a Coconut Oil Face Mask

Coconut oil is rapidly becoming most peoples’ go-to beauty product, being quite reliable as far as hair and skin care goes. It is only recently that people have begun using the oil for skin care, which is why many are still having trouble using it effectively.

What follows is a detailed step-by-step guide for creating and using your own coconut oil face mask so that you may benefit from the treatment’s full effectiveness.

  • Step One

    To begin with you will need to conduct a preliminary cleanse of your face with the coconut oil in order to get rid of all fungus and bacteria that may be lodged in your pores.

    To do so, simply rub a bit of the oil on your face and neck using your fingertips, following circular motions. Leave it on throughout the evening and wash it off at the end of the day to get rid of any residual oil.
  • Step Two

    This is where the preparation starts. Begin by putting four to five tablespoons of coconut oil into a bowl, mix it with three to four tablespoons of either sugar or salt, and then warm it up at a low heat and mix it. While it is warming up, put a few drops of vanilla extract or something similar in order to make for a great smell.
  • Step Three

    Once the mixture is ready you can use the coconut oil face mask instead of your night cream. Simply apply the coconut oil to your fingertips and make sure to rub some of it all over your face, from one end to the next.

    Rub the skin gently and in circular motions to allow your pores to absorb the cream faster, and then leave it on for the entire night.
  • Step Four

    Once you wake up in the morning, you will still have a decent amount of oil on your face from the mask, so simply wash it off with water or your facial cleanser. And that’s really all there is to making a coconut oil face mask at home!

Though these four steps may seem quite simple, rest assured that they will go a very long way towards ensuring your face remains moisturized, radiating, smooth and shiny. Simply remember to use the mixture at least once a day for five to six times per week, and you should see improvements in the very near future.
