Now, I know that this may just be because both of the people who recommended this are Vegan, but I'm starting to consider it...

 

I have:

*Very Oily Skin

*Fair skin

*Sensitive Skin on occasion

*Slightly allergic to benzoyl peroxide

*Recently on an acne medication (after months without due to no insurance)

*And (for the same reason) had to take a month off of my birth control and am having THE WORSTE hormonal break out I've ever had.

*Unfortunately, I am a heavy make-up user

*And a very stressed out college student

(Not totally sure if you needed to know all that, but there you go)

 

I know Tea Tree is for the bacteria that causes acne, and I was told that the coconut oil helps adequately moisturize very oily skin and keep it from getting incredibly oily later on in the day. I just wanted to know if this is true or just something buzzing around lately.

 

I don't plan on doing this till after my breakout calms the H.E. double hockey sticks down, but I was wondering if anybody had tried this and what they're results were?

Hey! 

 

If you decide to do this, let me know. I recently did a tea tree oil study here at Acne.org, and for me, it broke me out like crazy. I recently picked up a natural cures acne system, and it discusses natural ways to cure acne, and I guess in many cases, acne has to do with candida. If you decide to go the natural route, I would definitely start researching candida.

 

From the sounds of it, the only true way to get rid of acne naturally is from within. I haven't had any success, ever with any natural topical acne treatments. Tea tree oil broke me out like crazy, and for me, the only thing that has really ever kept me 100% clear is benzoyl peroxide.

 

PS: 

 

I'm not saying your idea won't be effective.

 

I'm just letting you know what I know based off of my experience, and some research. :)
