I have battled with acne since I was a teenager. I kept hoping I would grow out of out, but it’s still a struggle for me from time to time. Over the years I have tried various skin care brands, many of which are geared towards problem skin. Some didn’t work at all for me, while other brands worked for a time. I often thought I had finally found a brand that worked and would buy more when I ran out, only to find out that it no longer worked for my skin. So I kept searching for what worked best for me and my skin.
A few years ago, lots of people seemed to get into the “crunchy” kick. They were going all natural and had all kinds of homemade remedies, tips, and tricks. I started exploring the more natural route of skin care. I came across recommendations and rave reviews of using coconut oil, so I decided to give it a try.
Coconut oil seemed to work well for so many people, but it was an absolute disaster for my skin! It exacerbated the problem instead of resolving it. The search continued.
