This super simple DIY avocado banana face mask with coconut oil is very nourishing and made in just a minute!
The moisturizing and nourishing properties of banana and avocado mixed with coconut oil give your skin a healthy, glowing boost.
Banana contains minerals such as magnesium and potassium, vitamin A, B, C and E and other powerful nutrients.
Avocados are full with good fats, proteins, amino acids and other nutrients. It deeply moisturizes the skin and protects the cells against external damage.
Coconut oil is amazing for your skin: it moisturizes, protects, nourishes and cleans. This natural oil has strong antimicrobial properties, repairs skin tissue, stimulates collagen production and improves skin texture.
The ideal coconut oil consistency for this DIY beauty recipe is when it’s soft.
You don’t want the coconut oil to be liquid because the mask should be creamy.
I usually keep two jars of coconut oil; one in the fridge and one in my kitchen cabinet. This way I always have solid and soft coconut oil whenever I need it.
If you live in a cold climate or it’s winter now in your part of the world, you’ll need to soften the coconut oil a bit.
There is no need to melt it, you can use the natural heat of your (clean) hands.
The banana and avocado should be very ripe. Mash them together with the coconut oil, mix everything and your DIY avocado banana face mask with coconut oil is done!
Put the mask on your face and leave it on for 20-30 minutes or longer if you are comfortable with it.
This mask doesn’t dry, so it’s best to lay down for a bit and relax.
It might become a bit runny, so keep a towel wrapped around your hair and one by your side if you need to. Make sure to wear clothes that are ok to get dirty.
Gently wash off afterwards with room temperature water and dry with a towel.
