I have small broken capillaries all over my face and very pale skin. I never got excited until I got a rather large one on the side of my nose that was almost purple in color. I started using coconut oil on my face at a friend's suggestion as a moisturizer and for it's antibacterial quality for my pre-menopausal acne. It has helped tremendously with my acne, but I noticed my broken capillary on the side of my nose is almost gone after just a few applications. It is just a pale thin red now!
