I had come down with some skin lesions and went to about a dermatologist for his help. He gave me a cream that I used faithfully, but it just didn't work. I grew concerned because I have a history of basal cell cancer and I didn't want these lesions to develop into that. About 6 weeks ago I was in Whole Foods and saw this jar of ________ Coconut Oil. It was the expeller pressed, unrefined kind. I purchased it with every intent to learn how to cook with it; however, I came across another web site where someone mentioned they were using it as a skin cream. So, what the heck, I tried it as a massage on both legs and arms. Oh I am just in a state of awe that my lesions are fading! I am so excited, so pleased that a $10 jar of coconut oil could make my skin healthier. I'm using it on my face too, wow those fine lines are fading too! I will continue to use this day and night on my skin, and will start tomorrow with taking it orally.
I has a new skin growth on my arm and starting rubbing coconut oil into it a couple times a day. It totally disappeared within 2 weeks I was amazed. I had been all set to go see the doctor but never had to go.
I have used extra virgin coconut oil topically and internally for seven months. It is fantastic. I applied it topically to a pre cancerous skin lesion on my forehead at the hairline and within three days the lesion was gone! I wish I had known about the benefits of coconut oil six years ago when I underwent Mohs excision and plastic surgery on my nose for skin cancer. I could have saved myself a lot of worry, not to mention pain and nine month of plastic surgery procedures to reconstruct my nose.
