    Yeah it's fine to do that. It will act as a natural moisturiser

    Idk about letting it sit on your skin all night, but it's good as a moisturiser and as an oil cleanser HOWEVER it is highly comedogenic (causes breakouts) so test it out first on a small area and then go about using it

    It's fine to use it at night. Whenever you want really. I tried using it though and hated it, but at least putting it on at night means you don't walk around during the day all oily.

    Because everyone's skin is different and reacts to different things differently - I don't breakout when I use coconut oil either but some do.

    Comedogenic just means it blocks your pores really.

    That should be fine! I would be a bit weary about it though if you have very acne prone or oily skin already. If you've got normal/dry skin though it should be fine.
    Have you ever used coconut oil to oil cleanse and take makeup off? It works SO well

    Coconut should be fine on your skin, but maybe try doing a small patch test before you cover your whole body. I've got quite dry skin and it works a treat for me. Good luck

    don't. i tested it, i used it for weeks, bad idea. ok so my skin might be sensitive to almost everything but coconut or any kind of oil will clog your pores and little white heads will appear the next morning in little bunches, triggering your trypophobia

    Yes, coconut oil helps in fighting acne and acne scars. It is the best natural moisturizer. If you apply it regularly, you will see the result in 3 months.
