Coconut oil is a reliable solution to acne scars. After your CleaRx treatment, the acne may have already been healed but you may be left wondering what to do with the scars it left behind. That’s when the power of coconut oil becomes handy. Coconut oil contains various proteins which ensure damaged skin cells are replaced.
A good way to prepare this formula is to mix 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil to 1 tablespoon of baking soda until it becomes like a paste. Next is to apply this on the affected area, rubbing it in circular motion for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse this with cold water and pat dry. Remember not to scrub it dry to avoid dehydration of the skin.
Here are some additional tips in treating your acne with coconut oil:
- Preparedness is the Key
Coconut oil is known to draw out the remaining toxins from your skin. Right after your CleaRx treatment, applying coconut oil to promote skin repair from the scars will also cleanse what is left on your pores. In the process, sudden appearances of whiteheads might be observed. Don’t worry though, this is just temporary. Be prepared and continue with the treatment.
- Exclusively Use Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
Make sure that you are using only Organic Virgin Coconut Oil as there are many processed version of this product that may be carrying potentially harmful pesticides and other toxic chemicals. If you are still within the period of using CleaRx treatment, avoid using any other commercial treatments as it can throw off the PH balance of your skin. Although organic virgin coconut oil is definitely more expensive, it promises to work hand in hand with CleaRx in making your skin spotless and blemish free.
- Do Not Apply Too Much
Putting thick layers of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil on your face is unnecessary. It will not hasten the healing process of your scars. Instead, it may even saturate your skin. Remember to also strip your face off makeup and dirt before applying this.
- Work with your Diet and Lifestyle
Opt for the more natural food than the processed ones. As Organic Virgin Coconut Oil draws toxins out the body, eating unhealthy might start and interfere with your acne treatment. Avoid staying up late at night to also stabilize your hormones. If you are not fond of working out, it’s time to start making it a habit to detoxify your body!
Remembering these tips, plus staying religious with your CleaRx routine, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil will work wonders! Your scars will heal and give you a flawless skin soon enough!
