Dr. Imani Walker Reveals How She Cured Her Cystic Acne Using Coconut Oil
The Married to Medicine Los Angeles doctor opened up about her new budget-friendly skincare routine.
Dr. Imani Walker has never been one to hold back when she has some great tips to share. The Married to Medicine Los Angeles psychiatrist routinely shares the fitness tricks that are responsible for her killer physique and rock hard abs and is always down to dish a little daily motivation. But in a recent Instagram post, the LA fitness buff got real about her struggles with a very common skincare concern — adult acne — and the surprisingly effective beauty buy that helped her overcome it.
On August 21, Dr. Imani posted a simple pic of a jar of organic, cold-pressed coconut oil alongside a revealing caption about her issues with her complexion. "After experiencing milder acne in my teens and 20s, my acne really worsened in my 30s which is actually when most women report their acne worsening to their doctors ? After numerous chemical peels, steroid injections ? into my painful, deep acne cysts, I did some research and learned about the oil cleaning method or OCM ?," she wrote.
"It actually helped my oily areas of my face to calm down and I noticed my pores to start emptying out. Gross but true lol ?. I use pressed coconut oil to cleanse my face then wipe with a hot washcloth. I follow this up with Sunflower Sweets oil by Ayele which keeps my skin moisturized all day and blemish free! Lastly, I give my lips a swipe of petroleum-free balm and I’m out the door sans makeup! ? "
Huh! Who knew?! Luckily, you can score the same low-cost option since the Island Fresh Organic Virgin Coconut Oil ($14) is available online!
