Is coconut oil bad for your skin?

I’ve been reading a lot of bad stuff about coconut oil lately, and I’m just trying to get a clear picture of whether it’s good or bad for your skin.
In the beginning, everything had coconut oil in it and it was praised as amazing. Now, it seems that coconut oil can clog pores, especially for those with oily skin.

So what IS the actual truth here?

@ericafoxx yes coconut oil IS actually bad for your skin because it’s high on the comedogenic scale! Check out this list of carrier oils and it’ll explain a little bit more!

omg I can’t believe people still use coconut oil on their faces. it’s NO BUENO whatsoever! Clogs pores, gives breakouts, etc.
Please don’t use on your face, unless you only dot a small amount around your eyes!
