You are probably wondering “what the heck are they saying, coconut oil is Gods gift to my broken skin”. Sit down and be humble(lol), let’s take you on a ride of fun fact. Coconut oil has a lot of benefits that can not be denied, it’s filled with Vitamin E, lauric, capric and caprylic acids, proteins, it is also natural antibacterial and antifungal agents.
In recent times, people are looking less into chemically based products and getting more natural products for their skin, hair and even food. With all the great benefits packed in the coconut, how dare we say it’s not so good for your skin?
Coconut oil has a primary composition of saturated fast, this can help repair your skin by trapping in moisture, sped healing process and soothes rashes notwithstanding, coconut oil can clog your pores and that’s how it locks and hydrates your skin, which is why so many people use it on their hair.
Dermatologist Dr. David E. Bank, director of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, tells BuzzFeed Life. “A coconut oil might do a better job of sealing and protecting the skin, but it varies from person to person.” This means that coconut oil does not work for all skin types, another Dermatologist Dr. Sejal Shah of Smarter Skin Dermatology told Buzzfeed that “Coconut oil is considered a 4 on the 0–5 comedogenicity scale, which is a list of pore-blocking ingredients with 0 being non-pore-blocking and 5 being incredibly pore-blocking,”. In short, You could definitely break out from it and might not be so so great for people with acne. Comedogenic means pore-clogging and likely to cause acne comedones other wise known as pimples.
In summary, coconut oil has a lot of benefits but it can also be detrimental to the skin depending on the skin type and usage off this product. For better effects, mix this oil with other less comedogenic oils like argan oil and marala oil. Let us know your thoughts does this oil work for you?
