Eating coconut oil does not cause acne, as far as I'm concerned. But applying coconut oil to your skin MAY cause an acne breakout. Why?
Our skin is a good place to store toxins since it is large and it's one of the organs that our body uses to help expel toxins.
But the problem is, when you consume toxin-laden food particularly animal proteins every single day, the toxins may be too much for your skin cells to handle and so instead of expelling toxins, your skin becomes a warehouse for toxins over the years.
That explains why meat-eaters tend to have dull skin and age faster. It all thanks to the toxins passed on to them by the animals.
After many years of storing toxins, when you start putting coconut oil on your skin, as coconut oil has potent anti-toxin property, it will draw toxins up to the surface of your skin. And if your skin tends to shed dead cells abnormally, the pores can easily get clogged. Purging of toxins by coconut oil will, at this juncture, trigger an acne breakout.

What's even worse is that if the animals are fed foods that contain pesticides, growth hormones and antibiotics, those extra chemicals will pass on to you as well.
Massive toxins, extra growth hormones, unwanted pesticides and antibiotics can inflict unthinkable damages on your health, causing an imbalance in your hormones and lead to a serious metabolic disorder.

First off, coconut oil does not cure acne. I have to tell you upfront because that's the fact. Coconut oil does help with acne but it can never help keep your skin acne-free for good because the root cause of acne lies with your diet and lifestyle.
What I'm trying to say is that, you can use coconut oil to help treat your acne but when it comes to permanently keeping acne at bay you got to make some changes to your diet and lifestyle.
Of course, it may sound to you that coconut oil works just like any other acne-fighting creams or lotions that on the surface help to reduce pimples but yet actually will bury more chemicals and toxins into your skin and when the time is ripe acne breaks out once again. Coconut oil, in fact, goes even further than just that to help with your acne treatment and try to reduce the odds of acne flare.
For example, coconut oil is filled with ... Continue reading "How Long does Coconut Oil Take to Cure Acne?"
