We all need a cup of coffee or two in a day to help perk us up. But did you know that aside from giving us an energy boost, coffee can be used to refresh your skin from the outside too? Coffee contains plenty of antioxidants that can combat skin damage. It is also useful in reducing the puffiness from your eyes even in exfoliating your skin too. So if you want to get the most out of your coffee, these coffee face masks are worth trying out when you have the time.
Coffee, oatmeal, and yogurt face mask
The combination of coffee and oatmeal can help exfoliate your skin so that new skin cells will appear. Yogurt, on the other hand, can help with toning your skin. To make this face mask, you will need to grind the coffee and oatmeal until they are in powder form then add the yogurt to create a paste. Apply this mixture on your face and neck and leave it on for 30 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water then pat face dry.
Coffee, cocoa, and yogurt face mask
Cocoa is also another good source of antioxidants just like coffee so combining them in this face mask means that you are getting loads of skin care benefits from the two. For this recipe, you will need 4 tablespoons of ground coffee beans, 6 to 8 tablespoons of unflavored yogurt, and 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Blend the ingredients thoroughly then spread the paste on your face evenly. Relax for 20 minutes or until the face mask has completely dried. Use lukewarm water to wash the mask off.
Coffee and olive oil face mask
If you have dry skin, the best coffee face mask to use is coffee and olive oil. Olive oil is known for its moisturizing effects that can penetrate deep into your skin. Combining it with coffee and your skin will thank you. To make this face mask, simply combine a tablespoon each of olive oil and coffee until you create a paste. Apply it on your face and neck and leave it on for 3 minutes. Wash it off afterwards and see the difference.
