Awaken, brighten and tighten your face with this Coffee and Raw Cacao Powder mask. This antioxidant mask exfoliates your face, brightens your complexion and reduces puffiness and bags. It smells good enough to eat, and you’ll find all the ingredients in your kitchen.
Apply this in the morning, as you’ll feel the caffeine hit. If you do a little research you’ll be surprised to read coffee is one of the best antioxidants for your skin. Coffee tightens pores, reduces oiliness, improves tone, increases circulation, exfoliates dead skin and speeds up your skins natural renewal process.
Cocoa, Honey and Yoghurt are all very moisturising. Cocoa is packed with flavonoids that encourages healthy cell development, absorbs UV light and increase blood flow to the skin. Honey locks in moisture and improves skins hydration. Cleopatra bathed in milk to give her skin a healthy glow, so it’s no surprise that yoghurt contains lactive acid that improves your complexion and clears pores.
- 1 Tablespoon of fresh coffee grinds*
- 1 Tablespoon of raw organic Cacao powder
- 2 Tablespoons of greek yoghurt**
- 1 Tablespoon of honey
- If you have oily prone skin, add a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Let it dry on your face, leave for 15-20 minutes. Lightly exfoliate as you wash it off with warm water.
*Use freshly ground coffee. Espresso coffee is better as it has a finer texture, I use the grounds from my Stovetop.
**Can use a nut milk or coconut oil if you adverse to dairy products
