Oil Pulling... gross or helpful?
77. Try out oil pulling for at least a month
I've been at it for a month, only taking a day off here and there when I was away or when I forgot. I've been pretty good about getting into a routine with it and I would say that it's pretty much a habit now. I scoop out a spoonful and swish it around while I'm showering and getting ready in the morning.
It really grossed me out for the first few days, but I eventually got used to it. The chewing/melting of the oil initially was also rather disgusting, but at least the coconut oil has a nice flavor.
Here are the claims:
Well shucks, my complexion is already glowing. Ha! Actually, there may be some improvement. I should have taken before and after photos.
All in all, I'm glad that I did this little experiment, and I think that I will continue using the coconut oil. A few times I have also smeared it on my face as kind of a night cream, and I've also used it as a moisturizer.
Verdict = coconut oil is some pretty awesome stuff. Give it your own trial!
