Winter weather destroys my hair and skin.
My hair is dry and stringy, but also oily at the same time, so I look like I stuck my finger in a light socket.
My skin is dry and bumpy and just plain gross.
My scalp itches like crazy.
My lips are cracked and peeled, and I’m OCD about biting them (and my nails) until lip balm is just a hopeless stick of lies.
This happens every year so I should be prepared, but I’m not.
I found a coconut oil solution for almost every skin condition on Pinterest. Yes, of course, Pinterest.
I have every intention of fixing my horrid hair by dragging the frizzy, icky mess to the hair salon. It needs to be cut… badly. And it could use another coating of clear.
My skin is a different issue.
I cannot just run down to the skin salon and get it fixed for the next three months. It’s an organ. It needs like… constant care and maintenance.
So the pinner of the Pinterest pin I found uses a mixture of a pinch baking soda and dab of coconut oil to wash his or her face (assuming woman) to prevent breakouts and provide glowing skin. He/She applies the mixture every few days and uses just the coconut oil on off days.
Preventing acne and blackheads by rubbing oil all over my face sounds too good to be true, but, with this dry, red, blackhead-ridden skin…
Well, I might as well try!
Tell me: Have you rubbed oil all over your face and ended up with a result that wasn’t totally gross? Should I bother?
Another Pinterest pin highlighted a coconut oil eye cream mixed with vitamin E from a capsule. Both ingredients promote skin health and repair.
