Vanessa Has Gone Coco-nutty!

I am in danger of becoming obsessed with coconut oil, so much so that Joshua has accused me of being a little bit coco-nutty!
But seriously, this is one amazing product!
Let me share with you another of my favorite uses...
As a face wash/mask!
My story is that I had clear skin until I had my first baby, and then hormonal acne set in.  The trouble with hormonal acne, is that the regular acne treatments are too harsh and can actually make it worse...gentle is best.  I have had some success with gentle treatments but nothing has returned me to my formerly clear skinned state...
I was nervous to try using coconut oil on my face at first, it seems so counter-intuitive, oil as a facial cleanser?
But I have been using it for two weeks now and my skin is clearer, my scars are fading, and my skin is incredibly soft!
It's simple, take about a teaspoon of coconut oil, massage it into your face, including your eyes to remove eye makeup, then take a washcloth soaked in water as warm as you can stand it, and press it against your face until it begins to cool down.  Then use the washcloth to wipe away the coconut oil!
I use a natural toner and my regular moisturizer after that and I'm done!
The coconut oil is supposed to help your skin find its balance, and it nourishes your eyelashes and eyebrows as well! 
You know I must be a fan if I was willing to share my naked face with you to prove my point!
