^ I actually wash my face with only coconut oil, and have fewer breakouts. Every day, I thoroughly rub coconut oil into my face, ears, and neck, then sort of rinse it with hot water, and then wipe it all off with a clean cloth.
It makes my skin look and feel amazing.

Quitting alcohol has also been huge, I was a regular wine drinker and I did not realize how much damage it was doing to my skin.

THANK YOU!

I'm a guy, but I recently started taking a medication that will make me even more prone to acne. And I have issues with the feeling of soap on my skin, I rinse way too much and can't wash my face without getting water everywhere. This sounds like it'd be much easier approach for me.

If you are prone to acne, don't use coconut oil, it's one of the few oils that clogs pores, most don't. You can google which oils are best for acne prone skin. My sister is extremely acne prone and uses jojoba oil, which is the most similar to natural skin oil.

I did a coconut oil treatment on the last couple inches of my hair (fine-textured, just past shoulder length) because it's seemed extra frizzy lately. After a couple of hours, I shampooed and conditioned normally and let it air-dry after only toweling the ends it lightly and finger-combing. I haven't seen my hair this curly in years!

Lol, the last coconut oil treatment I did left me with an afro, it was quite spectacular. Unfortunately, coconut oil can act similar to protein in hair, so the last inch turned to a crisp and started breaking off :(

I can't remember if I posted it here before but Aldi's natural skincare range - the one with silk proteins and hyaluronic acid- is a pretty good dupe for some of the fancier skincare and is very cheap. It hasn't caused any issues with my stupidly sensitive skin and it can make you feel a lil fancy to apply a serum sometimes. They also do a rosehip oil that makes you wake up with some seriously plush skin.

A hairdresser friend years ago gave me this tip - don't bother with most hair masks, just use your regular conditioner and leave it in for 30 minutes or so.
