Question: What is an easy coffee face mask recipe?
Answer: Coffee can be a great skincare remedy, thanks to the benefits of caffeine. Caffeine rejuvenates the skin, providing a tightening and brightening effect—perfect for a glowing and more youthful complexion.
Although a coffee mask can be a really great option for radiant skin, you must make sure that you are using a very finely milled scrub. If the coffee beans in your mask are too large, they can actually harm the facial skin cells and become quite damaging.
Here’s a quick DIY coffee face mask recipe that you can whip up at home:
- 1/2 a cup of very finely milled coffee beans (this perks up tired skin)
- 1 cup of milk (helps hydrate and smooth skin)
- 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder (a good source of antioxidants)
- 3 tablespoons of honey (absorbs moisture)
After all of the ingredients are mixed together, the mask should be a paste-like consistency. Apply it to your face and let it sit for about 20 minutes, or until the mask dries. Then wash it off with warm water.
If you are really interested in the skin benefits of coffee, a coffee body scrub is another lovely option. Why? The skin on your face is sensitive and much thinner than the rest of your body. I love getting scrubs from Castlewood NY. They have an extremely affordable organic coffee bean scrub that is amazing for cellulite and cell rejuvenation.
