DIY: Coffee Face Mask!

Those who are following my blog for quite some time know that I am always like to make homemade skin care recipes which are very easily available in kitchen stuffs. So today let me share with you my recent face mask, which I made with COFFEE!

It’s actually an ideal mask for all skin types – with a few add-ins depending on your skin concerns. Coffee helps to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize the skin making it an excellent face mask. The anti oxidant in coffee helps to firm and tighten the skin. Coffee mask can brighten your complexion too.

This is the one of the very easy mask that you like most  – it’s simple, fast and effective.
What you’ll need:
2 tsp ground coffee beans (you can grind your own or buy pre-ground)
1 tsp honey 
1 tsp fresh Aloe-Vera Gel
1 tsp lemon juice

In a bowl, mix the ground coffee beans with honey. Add in the Aloe-Vera gel and lemon juice; stir until it creates a paste. Apply to skin and let dry (up to 20 minutes). while wash off the mask slowly massage the mask to your skin. It works further as an exfoliator. Don't massage to hard if you have sensitive skin. Store any extras in the fridge for up to 3 days. The mask rinses off very easily and does not leave any brown color on skin, but you may smell a bit like coffee!

Benefits of the coffee face mask:
  • Full of antioxidants that fight the free radicals in skin cells
  • The mask  promotes blood circulation and making your skin look its best.
  • Diminish dark under eye circles, reduces blood build up under eyes
  • Exfoliate dead skin cells
  • Anti-aging properties
  • One of the most impotent thing, this mask protects skin against harsh sun rays
