I am hearing so many wonderful things about coconut oil! I will have to pick some up and try your scrub. I have been reading about a cleansing routine that uses oil- castor oil, I think (and maybe another oil). I have tried the olive oil on my hair and I didn't notice a difference.

I make a cinnamon and coconut oil scrub that's really nice, it makes your skin brighter and glowy.  :)  There's really no recipe.  A little cinnamon and coconut oil in my hand and rub it together, then rub it on my face in a circular motion.

LinnieThree - what you're probably thinking of is the oil cleansing method. I've been trying it for the last couple weeks with no luck, but some people really swear by it. I also used coconut oil in the past, but it clogged my pores.

 

I think I'll try the egg white mask! It's worth a shot.

maryamrose- yes, that is what it is! I do find it hard to believe that oil's can clean my face but people have done it throughout history but I think that it will clog my pores (like it did with you). I don't want to try too many things at once incase I get a reaction and can't narrow down what did it. My DD is in school today so during DS's nap, its going to be mama egg white face mask time:) Coconut oil just sounds delicious- I LOVE coconut! Haha

I try to eat a tbsp. of it every day...it's a little harder now since the texture is kinda gross.  But eating it really amps up the positive effects on your skin (and health in general).
