Hmmm.... interesting and glad you posted this info.
The past three days I've been oil pulling with Unrefined-Organic Sesame Oil. Really like it! However, I'm breaking out on the lower part of my face around my beard line. It is a cystic type acne. I'm finding bumps when I wash my face as they are not surfacing but can definitely feel them. I shouldn't do this but I push on them to drain and there will be hard butter-like piece that pops out with white material right after it. The swelling goes down and then its okay. What the heck is this?
Now here's the kicker - the past few days, I've increased my cardio (much sweating), sitting in sauna for 20 minutes, applying coconut oil to my skin(face, all over body after shower) and getting a trigger point massage - which also mixes a lymph node massage - (this type of massage has actually been very painful because I have muscle knots all over my body from years of working out. The therapist has been releasing the knots. Its incredibly painful yet euphoric when the knot release occurs).
So - I am thinking that this breakout is a detox from
trigger-lymph node massage
cardio workout (sweat)
sesame oil pulling
By the way, the sesame oil pull has made me incredibly calm and feeling great! Do you think that this is a detoxing effect on my system? (Anybody else please chime in) Has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if I should try the sesame oil on my skin too. The facial breakout I don't like but if it's a sign of clean-up then I will deal with it.

Oh yeah - I forgot to mention that late last week, I put some Bentonite
clay with apple cider vinegar on my face too. HELP!!!
