I was discussing this matter a few days back with my colleagues. One of the girls said that coconut oil makes skin dark!! I was quite surprised because a long time back some body had said that besan (chickpea flour) also turns the skin dark! I was pretty sure that this statement was equally a myth. But, then, I decided to google a bit on it. I did not really find any thing useful!!
It just says that coconut oil is amazing for hair and skin and all. I have been using coconut oil for like, a month, now. I mainly use coconut oil to remove the sunscreen from my face, neck and arms. I haven’t noted any discoloration or pigmentation recently.
In fact, my skin has become more plump and more hydrated and my skin has started to glow. When I had dry patches, I had hoped that coconut oil would be able to make it fine but that was something I could not achieve but then it was the product which was making the skin dry.
