If you are what you eat than we say you’re also what you put on your face! In this case it’s coconut oil and raw honey. I know what you might be thinking- why would I want to put oil on my face or sticky honey for that matter? Putting coconut oil on your skin has been buzzing around the internet for some time now and for good reason. The oil has a small molecular structure that allows for easy absorption into the skin. It also has antioxidents that help your skin fight free radicals and help with common isuues like psoriasis, eczema, dry rough spots, and wrinkles. Honey has antiseptic and antimicrobrial properties that are ideal for healing skin and keeping bacteria at bay. Not to mention it’s also known for brightening your complexion.
How to: Mix 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of honey together until you have a sticky texture. Keep the mask on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Keep in mind the ingredients will warm up on your face and may drip a bit so keep a towel close by!
Pro Tip: Add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to your mixture to help tighten and shrink pores!
