Happy Fall everyone! I don’t know about you but I am so ready for cooler weather, chunky scarves and as always a Pumpkin Spice Latte!! I know that might seem a little cliché but this is seriously my favorite time of year! Personally for me, this is when I feel the most inspired when it comes to getting creative and wanting to do more on my days off from work! So that means pinning everything on Pinterest! That is a gold mine for all things DIY! They have amazing face mask recipes that are 100% eco-friendly because you are using all natural food ingredients! These are really easy to get your hands on, especially this one I’m going to talk about below! It is the coffee face mask!!
Not only is coffee a must have drink in my life, especially working retail, when I want to get anything done! This recipe consists of ground coffee and milk. So seriously, it is so simple!
1 tablespoon of coffee (any type will work)
1 ½ tablespoons of milk
Mix together well and let it sit for several minutes before you apply to your face. After about 5 minutes wipe the mixture all over your dry face, avoiding the eye area. Let it sit on your face for about 15-20 minutes and then rinse with cool to warm water.
Not only am I loving the smell of coffee on my face but once I rinsed it off I can seriously see a difference and it ended up clearing out some of my black heads in my T-Zone as well. While I had the mask on I did feel some tingling but not any major skin irritation. If it is too uncomfortable for your then I would advise rinsing it off right away. Again I have oily skin so this mask really helped balance out oiliness and clear up dirt on my face as well.
After some research, coffee has tons of antioxidants that will calm down the skin if you have acne prone skin. Which is why I am loving this mask after just one use! I mean it didn’t clear up all of my acne but it definitely left my skin feeling smooth and brighter. The lactic acid in milk is commonly known as salicylic acid which helps with clearing up blemishes and is filled with vitamins that will help with making your skin soft too. The mixture feels like an exfoliant and really clears away any dead skin cells. To sum it up if you have oily, acne prone skin like I do then you will love this mask! Not only does it clear away dirt and blemishes but it is completely eco-friendly! Tell me how you like it down below and what other house hold facial masks you really enjoy!
