Does Coconut Oil Cause Acne?

Face Reality Acne Clinic says:


Coconut oil has many benefits when consumed internally. We can understand why someone who is desperately looking for relief from their acne might turn to coconut oil. It contains antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. It can help to kill yeast and parasites which improves digestion, and it can also boost your immune system to fight infections.


HOWEVER, consuming coconut oil and applying it topically are very different scenarios, particularly if you are acne-prone. The molecule of coconut oil is very small and sticky. This allows it to penetrate perfectly into your pore leaving it CLOGGED and sticking your dead skin cells together! Unfortunately this DIY skin tip will result in breakouts if you are acne-prone. If you are prone to breakouts, please stick to cooking with coconut oil and steer clear of applying it topically!
