coconut oil is a THICK oil, which means instead of being easily absorbed by your skin, it SITS on top of it. The layer of thick oil forms a film over your pores, making it hard for them to breathe and inevitably TRAPS BACTERIA and DEAD SKIN CELLS, leaving your pores CLOGGED . If you have OILY or ACNE prone skin you should be staying as far away from coconut oil as possible.
And be careful! Coconut oil is snuck into a lot of beauty and skincare products these days. Look out for ingredients like “Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cocos Nucifera” in your ingredient lists.
