Switch on the best in you 🙂 Your Cup of Inspiration.
Do you know that grounded coffee can be used as mask as well as a scrub for your face and body?
If your answer is “Never heard of it” or “I know but not sure what good it that for”, or you just like to read about coffee or beauty tips… Next 2 minutes of your reading could give you something really interesting to try or just talk about.
So get that cup of yours and while you enjoy the aroma of coffee 😉, and read how coffee mask not only reduces dullness and tiredness but also tighten your skin and brighten your complexion.
A quick look at the ingredients and their benefits:
Coffee☕☕: Helps in reducing inflammation, redness and dark circles under the eye. And also acts like exfoliator.
Lemon🍋 juice: A rich content of natural Vitamin C; it lightens, tightens and brightens the skin. And is also good for regulating oil production.
Honey🍯🍯: One of the best humectant, i.e. the part that locks your moisture.
Olive oil: Provides antioxidants protection, enhances exfoliation and doesn’t clog pores. When applied it helps in protecting the skin from premature skin aging as it helps to restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light.
Okay, lets get on with it now…
Step 1 – Make your coffee, I normally use an Italian coffee press
Step 2 – Drink your coffee and relax!
Step 3 – Now use the powder left behind in the coffee press or the filter paper. Mix it with olive oil and make it like a scrubber.
Step 4 – Slowly scrub your skin for 1 or 2 mins in a circular motion; wash and pat it dry.
Effects: This will exfoliate the skin, i.e. remove dead skin cells from the skin and allow the new skin cells to shine through.
This is my favourite; take fine coffee powder, lemon juice and honey. Mix it well and apply evenly on skin. Wash and pat it dry after 15 mins.
Effects: Tighter and brighter skin.
