How To Have A Luxury At Home Spa Day On A Budget #7 Coconut Oil and Honey Face Mask

I am such a huge fan of coconut oil and I have written an actual blog on it which you can read here. In this sense, the coconut oil is being used for a face mask. And you can see the full recipe here. While raw honey serves as a spectacular sweetener in the kitchen, it also can be incredible for your skin when mixed with coconut oil and applied topically.

Honey is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs water molecules from the air and retains moisture. It also has strong antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, making it great for acne-prone skin and other inflammatory conditions. Honey contains varying concentrations of polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants that counteract the effects of free radicals, and may help repair damaged tissue.

It also contains alpha-hydroxy acids, which makes it a great gentle exfoliator.  In short, because honey has moisturizing, antimicrobial, and restorative properties, it’s great for using as a homemade face mask. It also may help improve a variety of skin conditions, which makes it great for all skin types.


Mix raw honey with coconut oil and lavender essential oil by stirring with a toothpick or small spoon. If the mixture is too viscous, throw it in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. Once it’s hardened slightly, remove from the 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 the mask on for 10-15 minutes.
