Hello everyone! Today we are talking about a DIY skincare product; a lovely face mask with only 3 ingredients in it that are super cheap and easy to find.
So, get ready to pamper yourself with this super easy DIY mask; it is perfect to achieve a beautiful glowing skin without spending time and money at your local spa.
You will only need 3 natural ingredients that are really easy to find in your favorite grocery store or farmer market: coconut oil, brown sugar and coffee grounds.
Here is the recipe:
1– Melt a teaspoon of coconut oil by putting it in a mug and then, for no less than 30 seconds, in the microwave;
2– Retrieve a teaspoon of coffee grounds from your coffee pot;
3– Mix the coconut oil and the coffee grounds together in a small glass bowl;
4– Add a teaspoon of brown sugar;
5– Mix everything together happily;
6– Apply to the face and keep the mixture on for 15 minutes;
7– Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Et voilà, you will have an amazing moisturizing/exfoliating face mask suitable for all skin types. In fact, the coconut oil is a lovely nourishing natural product; sugar is a brilliant natural exfoliant because it tends not to tear at the skin (like other stronger products); coffee grounds are awesome to bright your skin and wake up a dull-ish complexion.
Some words of advice:
A) I prefer washing masks off with a warm and wet washcloth, instead of a plain and simple splash of water. I run a washcloth under lukewarm water, squeeze out the excess water and then gently wash off the mask in a circular motion. Washcloths are also brilliant for exfoliating.
B) If you don’t particularly like the slightly “greasy” sensation that coconut oil naturally leaves on your face, you can use a gentle cleanser to remove it after, of course, you have rinse off all the mixture of the mask.
C) I would recommend staying right on your bathroom sink while you put this mask on, because otherwise the coffee grains will spread everywhere, even on your cloths, so be careful.
I love to apply this mask before an event or a night out as it gets my skin glowing.
Plus the smell of coffee and coconut oil blended together? OMG, heavenly!
Have you already tried this DIY mask or are you tempted to frantically search for the ingredients throughout your kitchen cabinets right now and try it ASAP? I really like it, so I would love to know your thoughts about it!
