Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon Pure Virgin Coconut Oil

1 Tablespoon Raw Honey (Manuka Honey if available)

2 Drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

Prep:

Combine all 3 ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Once blended well together, apply the face mask to your freshly cleansed face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Once the time is up, rinse off with warm water, gently pat dry with a soft hand towel, and apply an oil-free moisturizer to retain hydration in the skin.

Benefits:

Virgin coconut oil has so many amazing things to offer the skin! It will hydrate dry skin, smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, in addition to effectively fight acne-causing bacteria due to its antibiotic properties. It will minimize the appearance of acne while helping to heal open wounds from pimples and cuts rapidly. It’s a powerful antioxidant Virgin coconut oil will NOT clog your pores so make sure you use this kind. If you don’t use a pure virgin coconut oil, it can clog your pores. Read the labels, it’s so important to your skin’s health. Virgin coconut oil is loaded with antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties due to lauric acid, carpric acid, and caprylic acid being present in the oil.

Raw honey contains many antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that heal your skin from acne and sun damage gently but effectively. It will gently pull impurities from your pores that are clogged and cause acne. These impurities include dead skin cells, excess oil, and acne-causing bacteria. If you can get your hands on Manuka Honey, though expensive, it is the best kind of honey you can use on your skin. It has even more antibacterial properties than regular raw honey and tons of necessary amino acids and other nutrients to treat, heal, and repair your skin.

Tea tree oil works to kill acne at the root of the problem. It seeps to the deepest layers of your skin destroying acne-causing bacteria as it does so. This oil will not clog your pores but instead will leave your skin beautifully healthy and clear. Your skin will be less oily since tea tree oil works to eliminate excess oil on the surface of the skin. The pores on your face will be minimized as well so if you suffer from large pores, you will love this face mask.  If you suffer from inflammation, redness, and irritation from acne, tea tree oil will soothe and calm your skin.

This face mask is amazing for anyone that suffers with acne, combination skin, or oily skin and you will notice positive results in a short time. You may use this mask more than twice a week and always apply an oil-free moisturizer after cleansing, exfoliating, or using a face mask.
