Pure Virgin Coconut Oil is amazing for your skin in so many ways. It is important to note that you should only apply coconut oil that is pure and virgin to your skin. Otherwise, it is not beneficial for your skin and can clog pores. Coconut oil, in its pure and virgin state, will not clog your pores and will not cause you to breakout. In fact, it is antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral, so it will kill all impurities that can cause you acne, including acne-causing bacteria. It is high in Vitamins C and E and zinc as well. It works as a beautiful moisturizer and anti-aging treatment and will hydrate dry skin and minimize fine lines and wrinkles so it is safe to use daily after cleansing. It also heals open cuts and pimples quickly and efficiently so unless you are allergic to coconut oil, it is beneficial to use every day.

Bananas are proven to be beneficial not only for eating, but for using on your skin as well. They effectively kill pimples due to the high levels of potassium within. The potassium literally suffocates the acne-causing bacteria in skin cells, healing pimples quickly. Bananas are safe to use on the most sensitive of skin types and have no known side effects. Bananas will also soothe dry, irritated, and inflamed skin so this face mask is ideal for anyone needing soothing and calming properties for the skin.

It is effective for healing infections from acne, as well as open cuts and wounds on the skin. It works beautifully to even out one’s skin tone as well so if you suffer from uneven or blotchy skin, this face mask is ideal for you.
