DIY Whipped Honey & Coconut Oil Facial Cleanser

Whipped Honey and Coconut Oil Facial Cleanser

You can make a gentle cleansing wash for your face that even removes makeup and is good for the most sensitive of skin with just a few ingredients in your kitchen.

Coconut oil is antibacterial, contains vitamin E and nourishing fatty acids and melts away dirt and makeup.

Manuka Honey is used in hospitals for wound care, is naturally healing for the skin and reduces inflammation, redness and irritation.

Avocado Oil also has beneficial properties for the skin including Vitamin E, Omega 3 fatty acids, and Vitamins . It also has sterolins which can boost collagen production and keep your skin supple and soft.

Optional beneficial additions to this face wash recipe is:

Lavender Essential Oil – Acne, Dry Skin, Wrinkles

Frankincense Essential Oil – Large Pores, Lifts and Tightens

Ylang, Ylang Essential Oil – If your skin is irritated or red

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil

2 Tablespoons of Manuka Honey (I used this K-16 Factor)

1 Tablespoon of Avocado Oil

Optional Essential Oils:

1 drop of Lavender

1 drop of Ylang Ylang

1 drop of Frankincense

You can use the oils interchangeably or 3 drops of just one kind.

Directions:

Whip the Coconut Oil with a hand held mixer in a bowl for one minute. Then, add in the Manuka Honey and Avocado Oil. Beat until nice and creamy. Finally add in the essential oils if you choose and blend.

Store the face wash in a glass jar.

To Use: Scoop out about a half tablespoon of the face wash and massage it into your face in circular motions to cleanse. Rinse with warm water. Pat your face dry gently. Follow with Serum and Moisturizer.

I recommend this natural serum and facial moisturizer as part of your skin care routine that is full of vitamins and has no artificial fragrances

Never Grow Up Serum and Moisturizer

Never Grwo Up Serum

Never Grow Up Face Creme

Enjoy this wash recipe!

Back to School Survivial

It’s coming! If you don’t want to think about back to school, you can just skip this……but if you want to get prepared! Ha, this is for teachers, parents and students!!! I don’t know about you, but my kids work hard all school year. My daughter Jessica has been working her behind off this Summer at her job, but loving every minute and making new connections. Imagine how pleased I was on her evening off when she came over to tell me…..”I hope you don’t mind Mom, but I raided your Perfectly Posh Face Masks and used a couple for a mini facial. I really needed it!” She is learning early how to take good care of her face for beautiful skin for a lifetime! Happy Mama here!!!
All the products in this photo are especially nice for Back to School.
