I am always looking out for effortless, natural treatments to keep my skin looking fresh and spotless. As it turns out, I came across a miracle mixture that combines my passion for skin care and love of coffee!
That’s right! If you’re looking for a quick and easy, two ingredient exfoliating face mask that can treat acne prone skin AND prevent early signs of ageing; coffee and milk just became your new best friends!
SO why coffee and milk? Coffee is loaded with antioxidants that calms the skin and stimulates blood flow, leaving your skin looking brighter and healthier. Milk contains lactic acids, vitamin A and vitamin D, which work together to promote skin growth and combat blemishes. Together they manage to reduce redness, brighten and smooth skin to create a silky complexion that any girl would die for!
- Mix 1/2 tablespoon of coffee grounds with 1 tablespoon of milk
- Stir until thick (but not pasty) and rest for about three minutes
- Apply mixture in small circular motions to face
- Leave mask on for 15-20 minutes
- Gently rinse off mask under cool water, massaging grounds to exfoliate dead skin
This mask left my skin feeling invigorated, beautifully smooth and silky! It was an exceptionally quick, easy and practical recipe, including ingredients that can be found in any pantry. I recommend this mask to everyone but please bear in mind that every person is different with a unique level of skin sensitivity, so if you feel any discomfort towards these ingredients please remove the mask as quickly as possible and rinse your face thoroughly with water!
Happy exfoliating ladies!
