Wake Your Skin Up: DIY Coffee Face Mask

Sometimes our skin just needs a little boost! This coffee face mask will wake your skin right up. It is super easy to make and smells yummy yummy. I found this recipe on this beauty site and just had to try it immediately.

Here is what you need:

1/2 cup of ground coffee

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup of milk of choice (or any dairy product)

a tbsp of lemon juice OR if you have dry skin use olive oil

1 tbsp of honey OR if you have oily or acne prone skin use more lemon juice!

Mix all the ingredients together and apply evenly to face and let sit for up to 20 mins. You can keep the rest in the refrigerator for up to 3 days!

Why this stuff works!

Coffee beans reduces inflammation and redness. It “wakes up” a tired complexion and removes dead skin.

Cocoa powder is a good source of antioxidants and contains sulfur which helps fight acne

Lemon juice acts as an exfoliant and is great to lighten, tighten and brighten your skin always!

Honey locks in moisture!
