Coconut oil is extracted from the kernel or meat of a ripened coconut. It is a highly nutritious food that contains healthy fats, such as lauric acid, a fatty acid that is helpful in fighting off a variety of infections. Coconut oil is not only a nutritional supplement; it provides many skin care benefits. In particular, it is a highly effective moisturizing makeup remover that is an all-natural alternative to chemically based skin care products.
Squirt a small amount of the coconut oil onto your fingertips.
Rub the oil onto your face, moving your fingertips in small circular motions.
Splash warm water onto your face after you have adequately coated it with coconut oil. Keep wetting your face until you have rinsed off the oil.

Coconut oil also works as an eye makeup remover. Pour some coconut oil onto a cotton ball, and swipe it across your eyes. Additionally, you can rub coconut oil on your skin as a moisturizer.
