No More Acne!

A 16 years-old with acne

Image via Wikipedia

I am a 17 years old who has had acne for over 4 years.

None of the prescribed medications have worked for me. In fact, sometimes I think they make it worse. It is hard having to live with such a rough complexion.

It seems like I’ve tried just about everything. Like…

– no junk food (no sodas, candy bars, cookies and cakes, nothing syrupy)

– I wash my face with a special soap

– I use the ointment and take the pills the doctor gives me

The result? Maybe a bit better, but not really anywhere near good.

One article said acne could be an internal problem. It seems like eating the way mom would like me to eat should help with that, but so far the results are “Well it’s better but it’s still not good.”

My friend suggested coconut oil but I didn’t know why , or what to do with it. So I guess I better ask him.

He said, “Coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It contains the same oils found in  mother’s milk that keeps the baby healthy.  It must be safe for me if it is safe for a baby.

He said, “Just wash your face with a gentle soap, pat dry and rub a thin layer of coconut oil on your face. You will look greasy for a little while, maybe 5 or 10 minutes, and then it just seems to disappear.”

It’s amazing. It did disappear in about 10 minutes. Funny! Interesting! It felt good too…Let’s see, I will clean my face and use more coconut on it again tonight before bedtime.

My friend said, “after a few days my face is likely to get worse for a short time because it is cleaning and starting to heal and NOT to worry. It will pass!” “That is what I am waiting for,” I thought.

I asked why it got worse for a while. He said the coconut oil has penetrated the skin and is helping the body get rid of the impurities. He said his mom said the skin is one of the ways for the body to get rid of  impurities.

Then I asked him what he eats and if he thinks what he eats makes a difference? He answered, “yes.” We both have cut out junk food and now we eat meat and eggs, vegetables and fresh fruit. He said he also eats a spoonful of coconut oil, maybe as often as twice a day.

Of course, I had to ask him, “why coconut?” He said, “coconut oil provides medium chain fatty acids, the same fats that are in mother’s milk, that are anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.”

(Editors note: About 2 months later we checked on the friends to see how they were doing. There was a school dance that night and our two friends are sitting on the steps discussing their dates. They both have the clearest skin around. They will look so handsome.)
