Healthy and radiant skin is important to everyone and often hard to achieve without spending hundreds, even thousands of dollars. But this “do it yourself” facemask repairs and rejuvenates dull skin. The ingredients are simple and natural: coffee, cocoa, honey and yogurt.
Coffee is obviously full of caffeine, which can play a major part in awakening your skin. Coffee is full of anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and puffiness under eyes. The caffeine in coffee reduces under eye circles by breaking up the blood vessels built up under the eye.
Cocoa powder is the next ingredient in this facial mask. The antioxidants in cocoa promote healthy cellular growth and neutralize free radicals that are damaging to the body.
Honey has amazing benefits to our skin. It is a natural antibacterial, making it superb in treating acne. Honey opens up pores, moisturizes and creates a natural radiance. Plus, the antioxidants in honey work to slow the aging process.
The last ingredient is plain, no-sugar-added yogurt. Yogurt works to heal and hydrate skin. The lactic acid exfoliates dry skin and reduces wrinkles. It is full of zinc, an anti-inflammatory that tightens tissue, regulates oil and prevents acne. The calcium in yogurt helps regenerate skin calls heal dry skin.
Here is the Recipe:
- 2 tablespoons freshly ground coffee
- 2 tablespoons pure cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 tablespoons yogurt
To create this mask, first blend all ingredients together. Next, evenly and liberally spread the mix over skin and let it sit for 10 minutes. Lastly, rinse your face using warm water. This mixture can also be used to moisturize the entire body while taking a shower!
