How to Treat Acne with Coconut Oil Effortlessly

Very simple. Just follow these 3 steps.

1. Get Virgin Coconut Oil

Why virgin coconut oil. Because it is the holy grail of all types of coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil contains a complete set of antimicrobials that can help to fight excess acne bacteria and restore the balance of acne bacteria.

You don't kill all acne bacteria because by maintaining certain percentage of them is actually good for your skin. But when they get out of hand by overgrowing, that's where pimples start popping up like moles.

2. Thin Application

Since it is your skin that is having problem. Common sense tells us that we should apply virgin coconut oil to our skin.

But our skin gets saturated very easily. Even though comparing to other oils for skin care coconut oil can penetrate faster, smearing too much of it on your skin will make you look greasy and dirty when dust or particles stick on your skin.

Rub just a dab of virgin coconut oil around the affected spots and wait for your skin to absorb this thin layer of oil before you coat another thin layer. Re-apply as often as you deem necessary. Remember to cleanse your skin (best would be to use natural skin cleanser to prevent more chemicals from harming your skin) before application.

Take note that your skin may have tons of toxins buried underneath and so you should expect more breakouts of acne in terms of whiteheads as coconut oil helps to draw those toxic substances out of your skin. This process is known as healing crisis. Meaning, it will have to get worse before it gets better.

3. Eat Virgin Coconut Oil

Not many people choose to eat coconut oil when it comes to acne treatment. They thought it's simply the skin problem and so sheer application is good enough for the job. Actually not.

Acne is actually a sign that tells you that your liver has been overloaded. When it gets overloaded with detoxification workload, it no longer can effectively turn off androgens. Androgens are hormones that regulate sebum, which is your skin oil.

Virgin coconut oil, due to its powerful antimicrobial properties, can help to relieve the workload of your liver so that your liver can function normally and properly.

Eating virgin coconut oil for treating acne is actually super easy to achieve. Just substitute it for whatever cooking oils you're using now.
