This healthy smoothie contains a ton of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats to keep you feeling energetic and full throughout the day.
Ingredients:
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 cup pure coconut water
  • 1 tsp. raw honey
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 tbsp. unrefined coconut oil

Coconut and honey nourishing face mask

face mask
Instead of costly and chemical anti-wrinkle cream… I use raw coconut oil on my face every morning.
My skin is naturally oily – in the T zone.  Surprisingly… coconut oil is quickly absorbed and plump my wrinkles so they are far less noticeable.
I especially like the change in the skin around my eyes (where all the little wrinkles have developed over time).
The coconut oil is absorbed within minutes leaving my skin supple and ready for makeup.  … it works the best for removing makeup too!
Honey can effectively treat conditions like acne, rosacea, and eczema, while coconut oil is great for relieving dry or irritated skin, as well as for reducing wrinkles. Combining them leads to super soft, clear, hydrated skin!
Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. raw honey
Instructions: Mix the coconut oil and honey in a small bowl with a spoon until it’s well combined. Apply the mixture to your face and neck with your fingertips—gently—as sometimes honey can crystalize and be rough on your skin. Let it sink in for up to 20 minutes, and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Simple, easy and effective!
