Pina Coladas remain a favorite at popular beach vacation spots. Imagine your skin taking a refreshing sip of this popular drink! I'm referring to the non-alcoholic version, of course. Rich, creamy coconut milk and exhilarating pineapple make the pina colada a tasty treat as well as a wonderful facial mask.

Pina Colada Mask

1 TBS Coconut Milk
2 TBS Honey
1 TBS mashed Pineapple
1 TBS of Plain Yogurt

Mix all ingredients together. Apply to your clean skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off the mask with cool water to close your pores. You may not need to add a moisturizer after your mask, since the coconut milk contains plenty of oil.

Coconut milk contains natural emollients which help to moisturize the skin, helping to prevent it from wrinkling. The oil in coconut milk locks in moisture and softens the skin.

Honey is an excellent treatment for the skin and is used frequently in skincare products. It contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which can effectively help treat minor cuts, abrasions, and burns.

Pineapple contains a protein-digestive enzyme called bromelain which helps rid the skin of dead cells and dirt. The tingling action that is felt when this facial mask is applied is the enzymes in the pineapple working.

Yogurt helps to cleanse the skin with the exfoliating properties of lactic acid it contains. Lactic Acid is a mild alpha-hydroxy acid and can help balance your skin's acidity.

This mask recipe can also become a tasty smoothie. You will need to adjust the recipe to make a delicious pina colada smoothie.

Pina Colada Smoothie

½ cup Coconut milk
½ cup pineapples
2 TBS honey
¼ cup yogurt
6 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients in your blender and drink.

Now there is one more reason to enjoy a pina colada!
