Is coconut oil good for dark spots on the face? Acne is gone but it left dark spots.

It is almost exactly the same composition as our skin's natural oil, so when you apply it, it will actually slow the production of sebum, which causes acne. I didn't believe any oil could help acne..but jojoba does..and removes wrinkles too..try it on the frown marks!"

I'll certainly give Jojoba a try, but I wholly recommend virgin coconut oil for acne. My wife has had a terrible problem with acne all her life. After I learned about coconut oil, I finally talked her into trying it. If she begins to break out, she dabs some coconut oil on the bump before going to bed, it will shrink overnight. It works every single time. The pores on my nose are large, coconut oil completely cleans and opens the pores.
