The Wonder of Virgin Coconut Oil

After battling with the emotional and physical effect of acne on my face, I became really cautious when it comes to choosing skin care products. A few days ago, I’ve received multiple compliments from people whom I haven’t seen in a while. They keep on noticing the huge improvement on my skin (and I was secretly self-conscious about it!). One of them even asked what my “secret” is. The surprising part was that most of them didn’t believe that I didn’t do any facial treatment in the past.

A few years ago I developed egg, chicken, and seafood allergies which caused painful breakouts on my face. It was a struggle for me since I am living independently in Singapore. I lost my confidence, became insecure and it decreased my self-esteem too. Of course I tried a lot of products which I thought would help. I even resorted to using the most expensive brands because I had that idea that the more expensive the product is, the more effective it would be. I have nothing against those products though but none of them cleared out the problem.  Last year, my friend introduced me to a facial set which was really effective. I continued using the product for a year and I was really glad of the result. However, the product is not available here in Singapore so I went back to using The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Toner and Myra-e moisturiser.

While unpacking my stuff from the old place, I discovered an unopened bottle of Virgin Coconut Oil inside my luggage. I tried to use it on my face to remove make up before going to bed. Once a week, I combine raw sugar with VCO and then give myself a pampering body scrub too. After a month of using it, I was convinced and amazed of the result.

By the way, here’s my nightly routine:

Wash face with warm water.
Massage face with coconut oil. (5 minutes)
Wash face with my preferred facial wash. (I use Sukin Revitalising Facial Scrub, an Australian natural skin care product)
Rinse with warm water.
Use toner.

Disclaimer: Although the products and the routine work perfectly for me, this does not mean that the product and the routine would work perfectly fine with anybody too. PUATYOR ☺
