Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put on makeup, it itches, badly. This is one of the main reasons I stopped using makeup (although not entirely). It felt useless to impress people when I only had one person to impress. My boyfriend. And even he preferred me to go without makeup. I don't agree with girls piling on makeup to hide themselves. You want guys to like you for who you are, not who make yourself out to be. 

But that's beside the point. As I learned more about health, I found coconut oil. It's anti-bacterial. It's nourishing. It's all natural. But I only used it once a day.

Here's my nightly routine that I used religiously for years:

1) Wash skin off with plain old water.
2) Use a washcloth bathed in hot water to open pours.
3) Mix clay with ACV and allow it to sit on skin for at least 10 min.
4) Rinse skin off with just water.
5) Apply coconut oil.

And overtime, I went from pimply rosacea skin to neutral, less cystic acne.


I didn't use the regime every single day, but I never went months, let alone weeks without it.


After years of my skin being better, I stopped using everything altogether and occasionally wash my skin with water, especially after I use makeup.


Now you're probably thinking, "Are you kidding me?"


Nope, I am not kidding you. I don't use anything on my face, and guess what? It has never reverted back to its old red state. Sometimes I get some bad acne, but that's because my diet sucks sometimes.


Last summer, I used to drink green smoothies all the time. My diet was perfect, and my skin was the clearest I've ever seen it. I think I had zero cystic pimples that whole summer. But after the stress of school and work, I fell back on my awesome diet and developed poor eating habits, resulting in bad skin. Not horrible, just okay.
So what do you need for icredible skin? Coconut oil and bentonite clay.


Bentonite clay to pull out toxins, and coconut oil to replenish the sebum glands.


Oh, and a all-natural diet would benefit greatly.


I also have one last tip for you. Coconut oil makes a great make-up remover. No, really. Try it!

  1. I stumbled upon your blog, and its got really good info! I'm an organic believer who suffers from redness and sensitive skin. Not sure if its rosacea or not, but no acne. Ive finally found a good cleansing routine of coconut based cleansing. shea butter if i need moisturizer. clay soap occasionally to exfoliate. i use french yellow or pink clay though, i haven't tried bentonite because its suggested for oily skin and mine is dry.

    1. Thanks Su for commenting!

      Hmm..You might have rosacea. Redness is the main sign. Mine started off heavily as acne rosacea, but the acne is nowhere near as bad. I still have redness though. As long as it's not itchy, I'd say its roscea.

      It seems like you've found a good remedy for your skin. I love using coconut oil as a moisturizer when my skin really needs it. I've found that drinking lots of water helps to keep my face moisturized as well. I would look into getting a humidifier for your room in the winter time to help keep moisture circulating to your skin. I bet that would help if it's super dry.

      I would assume all clays have similar properties of pulling out toxins, though I've never really researched them before. If you do venture into bentonite clay, I'd suggest using it only twice a week and not over-killing like I did and using it everyday. :) But I was desperate at that time.

      I hope you keep searshing till you find your answers.

    2. Thank you for your post. I am a 57 yr old male and have suffered from Rosacea for years. I have been to the doc to get a cure, only to get an antibiotic cream that drys out my skin and make it more red and pimply. I've been using clay and coconut oil twice a day and the redness is going away and the pimples are reducing in size.

      Thank you for the info

  26. DermalMD Rosacea Serum is best for rosacea and this only my third day of using this serum but I have to say I am impressed with it already.. I have had problems with my complexion for years and have used numerous products with very little results. This is by far the best. My complexion is already starting to improve greatly.. I can hardly wait to see how well it works with continued use!

  27. In this generation the main and big problem is how to make our skin healthy and beautiful. I am also a girl and I do agree that maintaining skin health is quite difficult and for that we use many beauty products but still we don’t get our desired result. In my situation I always prefer coconut oil because it actually works like a miracle. Most of us generally use skin softener and moisturizer to make our skin soft but using natural ingredient for skin is one of the best ways to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. If you want to make your skin healthy and glowing I think you should try coconut oil for your skin

  31. TESTIMONY OF HOW I GOT CURED FROM (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) BY THE GREAT HEALER DOCTOR EHIZUELE
    Hello everyone my name is jessica I am here to testify of the great work Dr Ehizuele did in my life with the help of his herbal traditional medicine. I have been suffering from Herpes since 2015 and ever since then I have been looking for solutions on how to cure it. I have being to different hospitals but I discovered none of them was working out for me that I was just wasting money. So I decided to live everything to God, then I was taking my medications to sustain my life and reduce the pains. So on this particular Sunday morning after coming back from service I sat down and begin to ask myself questions, then my phone rang behold it was my sister calling which I answered the call and she started telling me that a friend of hers who has been suffering from same herpes has just been cured by Dr Ehizuele the herbal medicine man. Then I was over whelmed, even though I was a little bit confused so she encourage me to also give Dr Ehizuele a trial and see for myself then I told her to help me get his contact and forward them to me, So immediately she got the contact of Dr Ehizuele and send them to me, immediately I contacted Dr Ehizuele and he told me everything I needed to do to enable me get the herbs for my medications and immediately i did that which he instructed me to do without wasting anytime. And here I am today sound and healthy without any symptoms of herpes or any sickness in my body system. And he also told me that there is no sickness on this planet earth that doesn’t have a cure that with the help of herbs he can cure any sickness or disease you can ever think off. So if you are suffering from HERPES or any other sickness or disease and you need a cure you can also contact Dr Ehizuele with this Email Address at (dr.ehizuelespelltemple@gmail.com) so you can also receive your healing and share your testimony

  38. My rosacea became more of a problem as I moved into my 60's. After trying several different products without success, I did some research online and saw a recommendation for Dermalmd Rosacea Serum. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to see improvement! I keep it in the refrigerator, as recommended, and it is soothing and cooling as soon as applied. The overall redness improved after only 2 or 3 days. The red spots and broken vessels are becoming lighter more gradually, but I see steady improvement. My skin is smoother and healthier overall. I have shared the results with friends and family and gladly recommend it to anyone challenged by rosacea.
