My friend mentioned to me that she had been washing her face with coconut oil. At first I thought this was crazy talk. I mean, who has ever heard of washing your face with oil?! But I was desperate because my acne was getting out of control. So I started washing my face every night and it works! It’s totally evened out my complexion and even minimized my pores (although I should point out that I NEVER really wash my face, so just doing that might also be the reason my pimples are disappearing). All you do is rub a tiny bit of coconut oil on your dry face in circles for a minute or so and then run a washcloth under hot water and place it on your face to open your pores. I do this twice. Then you just wipe off the excess oil. I’ve been following it up by spot treating my blemishes with tea tree oil, cedarwood oil or lavender oil. Try it and let me know how it works for you!

  1. Oh, great, because my zits are getting out of control too!! I don’t have acne, but I still have more zits on my face than I’d allow if it were up to me 😉 I’ll definitely give this a try because I do not have much faith in beauty products in general!!
