SURPRISE! It’s my Halloween mask don’t be frightened!
Nah girl, it’s just my Sunday night at-home face mask. Every now and then, my dream night is slathering some unusual colored face mask (my happy place), a tall glass of pinot noir and some Real Housewives (I can’t even talk about how much I want to punch Jim in the stomach). This weekend I did exactly that with a quick and easy home recipe for a coffee scrub face mask. I’m a big fan of this mask, but I tried a different recipe this time using coffee grounds, greek yogurt and a little bit of fresh lemon juice (the lemon is from my own lemon tree!). The coffee grounds are high in antioxidants, and the caffeine is said to reduce puffiness.
The end result left my skin feeling exfoliated and super smooth. This is definitely a recipe I’ll be trying again, and maybe using honey instead of lemon juice to see if I can see the difference.
- 1 tablespoon finely ground coffee
- 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
- juice of half a lemon (this is good for oily skin, if you have dryer skin you can try using a tablespoon of coconut oil or honey)
Mix coffee grinds and yogurt together well. Add lemon juice, stir, and apply to face liberally. Once dried, clean face with water and voila! Enjoy your gorgeous new skin.
