Apply virgin and pure coconut oil the skin to moisturize and maintain balanced pH levels in the skin.
Pure coconut milk is simply amazing for the skin. If you have sensitive or dry skin, consider this one of the best moisture drinks you can offer your skin.

It is also loaded with antioxidants to leave your skin feeling clean, fresh, and rejuvenated.
Oat flour will calm irritated and inflamed skin, easing any pain and discomfort while gently removing cellular buildup (dry skin). When cellular buildup is removed, pores become unclogged of impurities like acne-causing bacteria and excess oil.
