Here are 2 ways I use coconut oil as an overall moisturizer:
- On my face. I take a dollop of oil and apply it all over my clean skin in the morning. I wet a washcloth and scrub my skin gently in a circular motion. The washcloth naturally exfoliates my skin, but you can also add a sprinkle of fine, granulated sugar or brown sugar to the washcloth for added exfoliating powers.
- On my body. After a shower, I'll apply coconut oil all over my legs. I then wipe off the excess with a dry towel. I make sure the oil is soaked in before getting into clean sheets or clothes and I never, ever use oils when I wear silk. The stains, the stains.
