The Toils of Oils
I hate to say it, but my recent obsession with oils has backfired on me just a lil bit. After a bunch of positive feedback on my previous post on oils I got a little oil-happy.
Without any research or even recommendation from anyone, I began using my coconut oil for face cleansing. Ahhhh did it feel nice…and smelled even better! I put about a teaspoon of coconut oil on a hot rag and gently scrubbed my face. Afterwards my face was completely make-up free and so very well hydrated. Just positively glowing! I began getting a TON of compliments on my skin, my make up was wearing beautifully…
That is until about three days ago when I began seeing….CLOGGED PORES!!!! and ZITS where ZITS HAVE NEVER BEEN BEFORE!!! I typically only break out around my chin for hormonal reasons, but nope not this time. Zits on my nose, zits on my forehead, chin, cheeks. Blackheads every which way. Apparently for me, coconut oil is comedogenic….not everyone has such misfortune with it, but I will definitely be sticking to body use only for my coconut oil.
Am I turned off from oil cleansing altogether? Hell no!!! I loved how it made my skin look and feel, I just need to get an oil that will not clog my pores. For that I’m definitely turning to Living Libations and I can’t wait to keep y’all posted on my results.
Has anyone else had an experience like this with coconut oil? Success with it?
