Purging Or Just Breaking Out?

Recommended Posts

So i've started using coconut oil on my face every day and night just before I wash.

I rinse with warm water, massage it all around, and then wash with my CeraVe cleanser and use ACV as a toner.

And now i've got lots of little bumps all over. I feel like the coconut oil is helping moisturize and even out my skin tone, but I think it may also be the cause of these little bumps...

It's either the fact that it's summer, I wore a lot of make up last week, or the coconut oil.

Opinions?

Coconut oil is pretty high on the comedogenic scale. If you are acne prone, it may not be the best choice for you.

okay, thanks for the reply! I wanted to keep using it, just so see if it would clear up over time, but I think i'll stop it.

coconut oil may not be the best choice, but on the other hand you could be breaking out from the summer heat.. i.e. heat rash. there are a bunch of different factors which could contribute to these little bumps breaking out on your skin. if i were you i which i know I'm not i would stop using coconut oil for a week or two and see if the little bumps go away if not then it wasn't the coconut oil and could be another product you are using.
