How To: Pineapple Facial Mask

Pineapple Skin Benefits
Rich with vitamins 
Skin friendly enzyme called Bromeliad
Exfoliates, lifts dirt and dead skin cells
Hydrates and is also known to reduce age spots & fine lines 
Gives Soft skin 
Heard to reduce acne

Coconut Milk,Sugar&Pineapple Facial Mask
3 fresh Pineapple slices
2 tablespoons Coconut milk
1 Pinch of Sugar

Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix them until you have a creamy like substance. Swipe the mixed ingredients gently and equally with your clean fingertips upon your face. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes Avoid the eye area!Wash off with warm water followed with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. For added moister apply a moisturizer, this will "seal" your skin to keep the water inside.

I used this mixture on my own skin. It has been my own test creation after a long time of none thanks to a friend that requested this specific fruit to become a mask. Dina ;)  I found all the benefits given above to react as told my own skin. I don't have troubled skin s far as acne but I was having trouble with dry skin due to the changing seasons and this helped clear it up and smooth out my skin. Every application left my skin feeling clean and refreshed and I just loved the softness it gave. Enjoy!
