Coconut oil is naturally rich in antioxidants and healthy acids, including capric, caprylic, myristic, and lauric acid. Coconut oil will soften and lubricate healthy skin cells, break down dead cells, heal acne, and hydrate skin.
Coconut oil’s small molecular structure allows it to penetrate skin pores to soften rough skin from within. Honey is a natural humectant, which hydrates skin cells. The lavender essential oil is completely optional. Lavender essential oil is included because it has antimicrobial and antioxidant characteristics, which may help with acne, and can be an effective way to soothe inflamed or irritated skin.

2 teaspoons coconut oil 1.5 teaspoons raw, unpasteurized honey 1-2 drops lavender essential oil (optional)

Mix raw honey with coconut oil and lavender essential oil (optional) by stirring with a toothpick or small spoon. If mixture is too viscous, throw it in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. Once it’s hardened slightly, remove from fridge and whip it with a spoon. After cleansing your skin, apply DIY coconut oil and honey face mask across your face with your fingers using small circular strokes. Leave mask on for 10-15 minutes.
