1 TBS Coconut Milk
2 TBS Honey
1 TBS mashed Pineapple
1 TBS Plain Yogurt
Mix all ingredients together. Apply to your clean skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off the mask with cool water to close your pores. You may not need to add a moisturizer after your mask, since the coconut milk contains plenty of oil.
Coconut milk contains natural emollients, locking in moisture and softening the skin.
Honey is an antibacterial and anti-inflammitory.
Pineapple contains a protein-digestive enzyme called bromelain which helps rid the skin of dead cells and dirt. The tingling action that is felt when this facial mask is applied is the enzymes in the pineapple working.
Yogurt helps to cleanse the skin with the exfoliating properties of lactic acid, which is a mild alpha-hydroxy acid, and can help balance your skins pH.
