Coconut oil is purely a natural product obtained from coconut plant which is highly nutritious, with many uses and diverse health benefits.
What is the theory on its use?
Word has it that coconut oil is one of the most common product for home remedies in acne removal and prevention. This is because it has anti-bacterial properties and can soothe inflammation hence reducing acne and in the long run completely getting rid of them.
Why this remedy won’t work
Although coconut has some awesome skin healing powers, it may not be absolutely adequate to remove acne. It is greasy hence may seal skin pores whereby all oil, sweat and other material excreted through the skin have no way through. This keeps the excrement below the skin surface causing inflammation. This keeps the problem below the skin, something that keeps festering and finally explodes into a serious condition when your skin can’t take it no more.
