1 rounded teaspoon finely ground coffee (the larger the grounds, the rougher the mask will be, so adjust for your skin type)
1 rounded teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon oil of your choice (I use coconut oil, but you could also use olive or avocado oil… I’d stay away from vegetable oil)
DIY face-scrub/mask recipes are a dime a dozen, so I thought it would be fun to whip up one of my own! I had all of these things on-hand, and have read about the benefits of each (plus, who doesn’t want a face mask that smells like dessert?)Here’s why I chose these ingredients:
Honey – natural anti-microbial properties, promotes healing
Coffee – caffeine which tightens skin, antioxidant properties
Chocolate (cocoa powder) – antioxidant properties (and smells amazing!)
Oil – hydration (hydrated skin is happy skin!)
Step 1. Combine all ingredients in a small microwave-safe bowl.
Step 2. Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds (I needed to do this to soften the oil and honey types I used, but warming the concoction will also help open your pores for maximum mask efficacy!) Stir well to combine.
