I am so excited to share with you how to make your own Raw Honey Coconut Oil Face Mask! Please do not attempt this if you are on a low sugar diet, because I can promise you that you are going to want to eat your face off.  It is truly the most decadent face mask you will ever try.

Let’s get down to the details of why you would want to smear raw honey and coconut oil all over your face.

Honey in the raw

The many benefits of Raw Honey:

First thing that you should know is that that not all honey is created equal. Unfortunately, most of the honey found in grocery stores has been processed with heat, which kills off healing enzymes and destroys a lot of the nutrient-rich content. Raw honey on the other hand is full of healing enzymes and nutrients that are very beneficial for healing your skin.  So what is the definition of “Raw Honey”?  Raw Honey is honey as it exists in the beehive or as obtained by extraction, settling, or straining; and that has not been heated above 118 degrees Fahrenheit during production or storage; or pasteurized.

Why Raw Honey is good for your skin:

Did you know that Raw Honey has the ph of 4.5.?  This means that it raw honey falls within skin’s naturally healthy pH range.  It is also contains antiseptic and antimicrobial properties making it great for healing the skin.  It is especially great at healing cuts and burns by killing bacteria and fungus. Raw honey also contains gluconic acid, a mild alpha hydroxy acid that brightens the complexion, evens out skin tone, and lightens scars and age spots.  Here are a few skin issues that raw honey does wonders for:

  • Acne and enlarged pores
  • Rosacea
  • Eczema
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sensitive, mature, and dull lifeless skin

Now let’s talk about Virgin Coconut Oil and how it benefits your skin:

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Virgin Coconut Oil has small molecular structure which allows for easy absorption through the skin –  helping to soften and smooth the texture of your skin.  Coconut oil has an anti-oxidant property which helps your skin fight against free radicals making it  an ideal ointment for the relief of dry, rough and wrinkled skin.Psoriasis and eczema suffers often see great improvements when they apply virgin coconut oil to their skin twice a day.  Sounds good, right!

So what would happen if we combine these two powerhouses into a nutrient rich yummy face mask?

!KaPow! Super soft hydrated skin!

  3. Mixing Bowl
  4. Spoon

Here is what you do:

  1. Mix Virgin Coconut Oil with Raw Honey using a spoon and a mixing bowl (make sure you mix till it is fully incorporated and looks like cloudy honey)
  2. Take your fingertips and apply mixture to your face softly because the raw honey may have crystallized and can be kinda rough on your skin if you use too much pressure.
  3. Let mixture rest on your face for 15 min and then rinse off gently with lukewarm water – patting face to dry.

Coconut oil’s healing, antibacterial, and cleansing properties take on an entirely new personality when used topically, making it the ideal multiple-products-in-one item to add to your skincare and personal grooming regimes. Since coconut oil is gentle on the skin and not laden with chemicals and ingredients you have to watch out for (like most of the skin and beauty care products sold today), this is a safe and easy oil for anyone to use and experiment with.

Here are 4 popular ways coconut oil can be used to replace the dozens of pricey, and often ineffective, products sitting in your bathroom.

Snacking is something nearly everyone does and likes to do. It’s fun, easy, and can give you that extra mood lift or energy boost you need in the middle of the day.

Unfortunately, mindless snacking can also lead to a lot of unhealthy habits such as feeding a sugar addiction. The body often craves foods and drinks that will boost energy, and sugar is usually the most readily available source.

Perhaps the best alternative you should be reaching for, instead of something loaded with processed sugary carbs, is coconut oil. Coconut oil is incredibly easy to work with, versatile, and can (and will) boost your energy, mood, and health.
