Summer is fast approaching and we all know too much sun exposure causes sunburn, premature aging and the worst, skin cancer. We can’t beat the sun because everyone wants to enjoy the beach or travel with family and friends. So, we have a few days left to create some DIY facial masks to keep our skin glowing and youthful.
Let me give you the benefits of each of the ingredients first, to help you understand why these facial masks work!

The benefits of avocado include anti-aging. Avocado is an amazing treatment that helps reduce wrinkles. Not only can you apply mashed avocado flesh to your skin as a facial mask, but also, when you eat avocado, it will help fight the aging process from within. Everyone wants to keep their youthful good looks for as long as possible and eating avocados can help. The antioxidants in the fruit will help to detoxify your body and help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, making your skin supple and plump.
Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention.
Aging: It’s full of antioxidants, and is great for slowing down aging.
Complexion Boost: It’s extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create glowing skin.
Pores: Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores, making them easy to unclog.
Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and moisturizing. According to research it’s also great for atopic dermatitis. Many women also swear by its use as a nighttime moisturizer for their face. Try the double cleansing method: Simply rub the oil in circular motions all over your face and neck, giving yourself a gentle massage as you go. When you're done, wash off the residue with your favorite cleanser. (If you're adult acne prone, avoid this technique unless you know your skin will tolerate coconut oil.)
Now that you have an idea on how the magic works with these natural ingredients, let’s move on to the perfect recipe.
