Coconut Oil for the face
I'm wondering if anybody else here on Megs has used organic virgin coconut oil on your face? For the past two weeks or so I was using tea tree essential oil in trying to get rid of acne. It seemed to work at first, but then it kind of came to a halt and quit working. Now for the past couple days I've been using organic virgin coconut oil on my face, putting it on as a moisturizer all over my face, after washing and using witch hazel toner. I can't believe the improvements I'm seeing! My face is so much smoother all over, even places I didn't have acne, I had tons of very very tiny bumps that were just causing my face to not feel very smooth and nice. Those bumps are nearly gone, namely on my forehead. My makeup is going on so much better too, and really looks pretty good so far! I just have a mass of zits on my chin area that have been bugging me for the past 3 months now, but those seem to really be drying up. For some reason, coconut oil really dries up zits in no time, almost instantly it seems. And it is so cheap and smells really really good! I really thought it would make my normally oil/combo skin even more oily, but it seems to be doing the opposite actually, making it less shiny and oily throughout the day! I've been doing a lot of "googling" about coconut oil for acne treatments and it seems it's a "hidden" popular fix for acne. One that all the "acne treatment" manufacturers and doctors don't want you to find out about. I strongly encourage anybody trying to get rid of acne or adult acne to go do some googling of your own, and read what's out there. I bought my coconut oil from iherb. I hear you can also find it at some grocery stores or health food stores. It's really worth the try! Even non-acne people I think would appreciate how nice it makes your skin feel.
