It’s my favorite recipe!
Instead of eating it, I slather it on my face. No facial comes close to the magic of Coco-Cado Caney Face Mask.
It begins with my favorite fruit of all time. AVOCADO. The Cado part of this recipe will nourish and hydrate your skin all while slowing down the aging process. Hello Monounsaturated fatty acids! The fab omega-3 fatty acid in avocados works to lock in moisture and keep your face glowing! This wonderful fruit is an antioxidant powerhouse (vitamin A, C, K, B6, E…fill in the blank) that naturally helps repair damaged skin. This is an edible no brainer!
Coconut Oil. I can’t begin to explain how in love I am with this ingredient. I use it for almost everything! Coconut oil is chock full of antioxidants that pump the brakes on free radical damage. It keeps your skin supple and elastic while stimulating collagen production. Buh bye wrinkles! It also helps protect you against harmful UV rays and works as a natural SPF! All the healthy acids in coconut oil provide your face with a love army of beauty protection. It’s strong antimicrobial/antiviral properties help kill acne causing bacteria and protect the skin from infections. Most people think, “oil on my face?! NOOO!” Rest easy my Fuddhies, coconut oil actually helps unclog blocked pores and remove dirt. This is the #1 way I get rid of blackheads!
Sugar Cane is a super sweet natural exfoliator 😉 It’s gentle and safe yet still super effective at scrubbing away dead skin cells paving the way for some seriously glowing skin! Cane sugar also contains glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxyl acid that helps fight bacteria while keeping your skin bright and healthy. As if things could get any sweeter, cane sugar is also a natural humectant, helping keep moisture in, masterfully hydrating and conditioning your skin.
Ooooh HONEY child. Honey is incredibly hydrating and ironically also wonderful at exfoliating skin cells. Honey contains anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, as well as antiseptic properties. So long acne!
When used religiously, honey helps fade unsightly scars and blemishes. I can tell you from experience this has worked better than any expensive cream I’ve ever been prescribed by a dermatologist.
Lastly, a dash of fresh lemon juice! Lemon is a natural astringent, which helps tighten and shrink large pores.
