I am almost 40 years old and I still battle adult acne. I am always careful when it comes to using oil on my face. My skin is extremely prone to breakouts, especially in the summertime when I get hot and sweaty. I have been using aloe vera gel as a light primer for my makeup and it works well, but my skin needed some softening and exfoliation. I looked at all of the oils I have been buying lately for my recipes and figured one of these has to work on my skin. I chose babassu oil because it is so similar to coconut oil, but it is not as greasy and pore-clogging. I applied the oil to my face while it was still damp, and just used a light coating. I let it sit on my skin for about an hour or so, and then washed it off. After two days, my skin is soft, supple, and clear of dead skin. Next time I use the babassu oil, I may add some drops of essential oil to give it a pleasant fragrance, or even come up with a recipe for a lotion to use it in.
