    I don’t know which part of the country do you live. You can try Virgin Coconut Oil (the oil extracted from coconut milk).
    You have to use it everyday. drink-ONE TABLESPOON FULL IN THE MORNING AND ANOTHER SPOONFUL IN THE NIGHT. this you will keep doing for long time (many days). This cleans your system.

    Every night apply Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) on your face. this also you will keep doing for long time (many days).
    VCO kills bacteria and gets absorbed in skin within 15-20 minutes and makes skin soft and moist. If you have any doubts write to me. I am from Mumbai.
