My beautiful daughter has recently been in a professional production of Julius Caesar in London – she played the part of Brutus and every night her skin had to contend with layers and layers of stage make-up, fake blood and mud. The result was that her skin was getting very congested and she was suffering from numerous breakouts all over her face.
I recommended that she massaged a teaspoon of unrefined, organic coconut oil as a cleanser all over her face (including eye make-up) to initially remove all the gunk, followed by a second cleanse with the coconut oil to really deep cleanse the skin after each performance.
After that, I recommended that she just needed to use a toner and moisturiser of her choice to complete the cleansing and moisturising process (she uses Spiezia moisturising products).
The results were amazing – the make-up came off really easily and her skin felt and looked really clean after every performance and NO MORE BREAKOUTS!
Unrefined, organic coconut oil is solid at room temperature. It contains no nasty chemicals, it’s paraben free, it’s moisturising and it is naturally antibacterial. It can be found in any health food shop or supermarket and is usually much better for your skin than off the shelf beauty product cleansers. And it costs a lot less too.
You can even use it as a moisturiser as well and it’s great for easing eczema and itchy skin.
Give it a go – you will be amazed by the results.
