  7.    Pat skin dry with a clean, soft towel.

Coconut oil and yoghurt face mask

Yoghurt offers plenty of moisture for your skin along with lactic acid that helps dry oily skin by dissolving dead skin cells, stripping excess oil and tightening pores. Yoghurt naturally reduces fine lines and wrinkles by tightening skin and pores. The coconut oil uses its antifungal and antibacterial properties to make your skin balanced and shine-free.

You will need:

  •    2 teaspoons coconut oil
  •    1 tablespoon of plain yoghurt.
  1.    Melt 2 teaspoons of coconut oil if not already in liquid form. 5 seconds in the microwave will do.
  2.    Add 2 teaspoons of melted coconut oil into a mixing bowl.
  3.    Add 1 tablespoon of plain yoghurt.
  4.    Mix until well combined.
  5.    Apply the mixture to your face. Ensure the mask is thick. The mask doesn’t keep so you don’t have to worry about using it all.
  6.    Leave on for 15 minutes.
  7.    Rinse your face with lukewarm water.
  8.    Pat skin dry with a clean, soft towel.
