Coconut Oil & Avocado Face Mask

Virgin Coconut Oil at 76 degrees and below is solid and white in color

Coconut Oil & Avocado Face Mask

Coconut oil is an oil with many healing properties.  It is rich in Vitamins A and K.  It is a great moisturizer as well because it helps your skin retain moisture.  If you are struggling with dry skin that loses its moisture quickly, then this homemade Coconut Oil and Avocado dry skin treatment is the one for you.  As with any homemade mask, make sure that you are not allergic to coconut oil if you haven't used it on your face before.  Do the same with avocado, although you should not have any allergic reaction.  You will warm up the coconut oil so that it is in liquid form instead.  Organic coconut oil is a white solid at room temperature.

Honey is an all natural astringent and toner.  It helps your skin retain its moisture and since honey is also an antiseptic, it clears your upper layer of skin from acne causing bacteria.  Use this homemade face mask to moisturize your face, and give it the healthy nutrients it needs to achieve that optimal healthy glow!

Read more on how to make the coconut oil and avocado face mask for dry skin.

Ingredients:

1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp virgin coconut oil
1/2 ripe avocado

Directions:

Warm up the coconut oil in a dish using the microwave (even better to just warm it over the stove carefully).  This is because the coconut oil needs to be in liquid form to work for this homemade face treatment.  Once you have warmed the coconut oil, and it is a liquid, mash the avocado in a bowl using a fork and add the coconut oil and honey.  Mix well.

Before applying this mask to your face, wash your face with warm water.  Using your clean fingertips, apply this homemade face mask to your dry skin and let it set for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse off properly with warm water and pat dry when you're done.  Tone and moisturize as usual. 

Your skin should feel smooth and moisturized afterwards.

Enjoy!
