If you have combination skin, then this is for you. If you have oily skin, then this is for you. If you have acne-prone skin, then this is for you. If you have dry skin, then this is for you.
If you have skin, then this is for you!
Growing up, I had the worse acne. When my brother’s wanted to make me mad, they always talked about my pimples. No matter how much acne medicine I used, my acne would never go away.
As I got older, my acne improved, but I had acne scars left from all of the harsh treatments and sun. My skin was also extremely oily in some places and dry in some places. Nothing I did helped the situation. When I used acne products and tried to dry up the oil, it dried up my entire face and I would have dry patches and itchy skin. When I would moisturize my face, it became oily and more acne would develop.
The only thing that has ever worked on my face is Albolene (parifin wax) and coconut oil. Recently I ran out of Albolene, and tried to use another cleanser on my face and I got three pimples the same day. I hadn’t had acne in over two years.
I had some left over 100% coconut oil in the raw that I used for my body, and I decided to try it on my face and my skin cleared up instantly. Plus, it helps to minimize and heal my acne scars (which are almost gone) and it makes my skin so soft!
Honestly, the best thing in skin care is to keep it simple. Don’t touch your face and don’t put a lot of products on your face.
My regimen is so easy. I rinse my face with water, take a teaspoon of raw coconut oil and rub it in my hands until it melts. Then, I massage it all over my face and neck. Finally, I wipe it all off with a warm washcloth.
That’s it. I do this every morning and every night and my skin has never been better. It’s not dry, it’s not oily. It’s just soft to the touch and clear as a pool of water.
That says a lot, considering I used to cleanse, tone and moisturize my face twice a day and mask twice a week. And my skin continued to get worse, despite all of this TLC. Once I scaled back my routine, my face really began to shine.
So, if your skin care regimen isn’t producing the desired results, buy yourself some raw 100% coconut oil and prepare to be amazed.
