@titiksha-0 Hello, it can be helpful if you don’t have oily skin. Coconut oil is high in lauric acid, which helps kill the bacteria that cause acne. Applying coconut oil to the skin can kill acne-causing bacteria and increase moisture, which may also reduce acne scarring. coconut oil and its components may help reduce inflammation in the body, it may also aid in the treatment of acne. If you have oily or highly sensitive skin, make sure to start slowly to assess your tolerance, and consult with a dermatologist if you have any concerns.
