I sat down with Bruce Fife, the world's leading expert on coconut oil, and discussed the miraculous promises of using coconut oil for anything from beauty products to health boosters. Dr. Fife mentioned that the lauric acid in coconut oil can clear up acne (which I paid special attention to!), so I went home and immediately started slathering it on every night.
