Coconut oil for preventing scars?
I did something very dumb last weekend. Long story short, I burned my face with the open oven door. No laughing, please.
Nothing major, just a brownish spot that's peeling off and the new skin underneath is only very slightly pinkish. It's more like a sunburn actually. I think it's not going to leave a scar, but I'm a little freaking out still. After all it's at the most conspicuous place possible.
So I've been treating it with Mederma, a good face moisturizer and extra virgin coconut oil.
Anyone using coconut oil on their face? How about using it to treat burns or other skin irritations? Has it been effective?
