Coconut oil contains capric acid and lauric acid, two of the most powerful antimicrobial agents found in food. It benefits the acne treatment by fighting acne bacteria and yeast, expelling toxins, soothing inflammation, preventing acne scars from forming and helping to diminish any that have already occurred. Make sure you get the unrefined, virgin, organic, cold-pressed coconut oil and spread it with your fingertips with circular motions. Be careful if you might be allergic to coconut oil.
