EVCO is Great For Your Skin

Made from the meat of the coconut, coconut oil is solid, white, and waxy below 76 degrees fahrenheit. Above this temperature it melts in to a clear oily liquid.

While extra virgin coconut oil (EVCO) is known to have amazing hair benefits (click here for some knowledge), one lesser known fact is its awesome skin care benefits. Because of its highly antiviral, highly antibacterial properties, coconut oil cleanses your skin and treats your acne and skin infections naturally and safely. People who have used coconut oil to treat acne have reported that their acne have nearly all stopped or hardly form and that the duration of their pimples lasts only about a day or two. They also report far fewer outbreaks happening at all. A recent pimple outbreak reminded me of the skin benefits of the oil when I put some on a pimple before bed and woke up to severely reduced in mass a pimple on my cheek. While my pimples tend to last for about a week (if untouched; I sometimes many times pop them by day 3 because I really cannot...), this one cleared up in 3 days. And my blemishes are lightening up.


How do you use coconut oil to treat your acne and/or blemishes? 
  • Purchase organic extra virgin coconut oil. 
  • Start massaging it in to your skin daily 
    • best to wash your face very well or apply it after a shower.
  • Add coconut oil to smoothies. 
    • i.e. blend 8 ounces yogurt, 4 ounces fruit, 1/4 cup milk, and 2 tb coconut oil.
  • A tablespoon or two a day of extra virgin coconut oil to take as a supplement to your diet.

I usually purchase mine from The Vitamin Shoppe or Wal-Mart (in the aisle with vitamins), but I've recently found that Amazon offers great prices as well. An organic and inexpensive product, extra virgin coconut oil is an essential tool in every person's beauty arsenal for healthy skin.
