A mixture of coconut oil and baking soda makes an excellent natural face wash.4. As a replacement for shaving cream.

It’s an oil, which means it will lubricate your skin enough to prevent razor burn and nicks. You’ll also get a much closer shave than you would with shaving cream.5. As an aftershave.
