Natural Beauty DIY: 6 Coconut Oil Face Masks

Natural Beauty DIY: 6 Coconut Oil Face Masks

Coconut oil is one of the best natural skin care products out there. The benefits of coconut oil are plentiful - from skin care and hair care to digestion and heart health. It’s no wonder this oil is all the rage for natural beauty.

So why is coconut oil so great for the skin? Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, is an exceptional moisturizer and is a great base for your DIY face mask recipes.  When choosing your coconut oil, make sure you are using cold pressed, extra virgin coconut oil rather than anything refined, like Pure Fiji’s Nourishing Exotic Bath and Body Coconut Oil. This oil is made with a blend of cold pressed virgin coconut oil, macadamia, dilo and sikeci oils, and blended with essential oils to create an intoxicating fragrance. The Nourishing Exotic Bath and Body Coconut Oil absorbs quickly to hydrate and nourish the skin, while also working to promote the production of collagen.  Use this oil in place of coconut oil in any of your face mask recipes to reap the many benefits of this blend of natural oils.

Here are 6 DIY coconut oil face mask recipes for you to try that are sure to leave your skin soft, supple and radiant:
