Is Coconut Oil Good for your skin?
Coconut oil is antimicrobial and antifungal, it sounds like a dream come true for acne prone skin. But the issue lies in the composition of the oil. All natural oils are comprised of 2 acids: oleic acid and linoleic acid. Oleic acid is SUPER pore clogging and linoleic is not. Guess how high in oleic acid coconut oil is? It is one of the top dogs! No wonder it is such an issue! But, it may not seem like an issue right away because it takes acne 90 days to form, so while you might feel like you are having tons of success with it at first, the seeds are being planted for a MAJOR breakout after a few weeks or months. Acne-prone and sensitive-skinned should seek out oils high in linoleic acid.
