My all time favorite homemade facial mask to make too help fight the signs of aging is my homemade pineapple coconut mask. The mask helps moisturize my skin while loading it up on tons of antioxidants and vitamins that help keep my skin from aging.
The ingredients you will need to make the mask are ½ cup of pineapple juice, ¼ cup of solid coconut oil and a tablespoon of cornstarch to help thicken up the facial mask so it stays on your face. If you do not have all of theses ingredients on hand you can find them at your local health food store or grocery store for under $10.
You are also going to need a small saucepan, small spoon and a small container to place the homemade pineapple coconut mask into after it is made. If you do not have these materials on hand you can find them at your local kitchen store.
Making the Mask
Now the way you make the pineapple coconut mask is by placing the ½ cup of pineapple juice, ¼ cup of solid coconut oil and a tablespoon of cornstarch into your small saucepan.
Next, all you do is place the pan on the stove burner, turn your stove burner on low heat and allow all of your ingredients too melt together until they form a thick liquid.
After, your ingredients are all melted together and have formed a thick liquid, all you do is allow the mask too cool down a bit. Once it has cooled, pour it into a storage container and place it in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. However, I find the mask works best when it is used as soon as possible.
Using the Mask
The way I like to use my homemade pineapple coconut mask is by making sure my face and skin is completely cleaned. Then, I like to take a handful of the mask and lather it onto my face in a thick even layer and allow it to stay on for around 20 minutes. After, I take the mask off with warm water and pat my face dry. I notice immediately after using this facial mask that my skin is a whole lot softer and the fine lines and wrinkles on face have faded away some.
I wish all of you the best of luck at trying to make my homemade pineapple coconut mask, and I hope you all enjoy what it does for your skin and face. I know I sure did and I would highly recommend it to anyone to make and try. I wish you all the best of luck at keeping your skin young and healthy.
