Happy Friday! I have another diy recipe to share with you. It's a coffee grounds/honey/oil face mask/exfoliate. It's affordable all natural and will leave your skin feeling and looking great. I have acne prone/sensitive skin and with my hormones going crazy right know this really helps.
DIY Coffee Grounds and Honey face mask/exfoliate
- 3 tbls used coffee grounds
- 1 tbls coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 - 1 tsp Raw honey
1. Wash your face and pat dry
2.Mix together the coffee grounds, honey and oil (if your using coconut oil its a solid form until it gets warmed up then it looks like oil so you may need to heat it up for 10 seconds).
3. Apply to face and massage gently into circular motions. Let it sit on your face for 10-20 minutes (you might want to put a towel around you in case anything drips).
4. Rinse off (if you like you can take a very tiny amount of coconut oil to massage in as a moisturize)
Enjoy your soft dewy glowing radiant skin! I would only use this 1-2 a week at most over exfoliating can be bad for your skin. I'll list below what the ingredients do in case your wondering:)
Coffee grounds are rich in antioxidants that help prevent aging and repair skin damage. Removing toxins and reducing puffiness. Natural ingredients that plump skin, anti irritant. Great antioxidant that prevents damage from free radicals. Removes dead skin cells.
Honey is very hydrating and plumps up skin and smooths out the appearance of wrinkles. It's a great anti bacterial and anti inflammatory. It traps in moisture and holds it there and tones complexion.
coconut oil has so many benefits and a ton of uses I'll probably just do a separate post on that.
If you try it out let me know what you think. Oh and make sure to use raw honey and if you use coconut oil get the unrefined organic kind:) and if you drink coffee you can use those coffee grounds for your mask. I'm not a coffee drinker so I got a container of coffee for $2, I use trader Joe's coconut oil its about $7 at my local store and a large mason jar of local honey that was $15. You should be able to find all these items at your local grocery store or walmart.
