It might come as shocking for some of you guys, but yes like we drink coffee to help ourselves/our brain to stay awake, we can do same for our dull face too! Say, Good Morning flawless skin! As I ran out of my usual brightening lemon face sheet that I got it off from The Body Shop , I explored my survival instincts and discovered this great mixture of brightening, tightening, exfoliating and awakening face mask. Believe it or not, it all incorporate only three ingredients. Yes, you heard me! And these are our legendary sources of skincare LEMON, COFFEE and SUGAR.
Let’s talk about each of their benefits, shall we?
LEMON: contains a Vitamin C which merely helps to lighten and brighten the skin and also acts as an exfoliant.
COFFEE: Coffee helps to tighten the skin and also acts as an exfoliant. It also helps to reduce the pores and reduces the swelling and inflammation on the skin, also keeping the skin awake.
SUGAR: Sugar acts as a very good exfoliant that helps to remove the dead skin cells from your face. It also helps to hydrate and moisturize your skin.
Making of mask:
Then, a teaspoon of ground coffees (you can either grind your own or use the usual ground coffee)And, finally add a teaspoon of sugar and mix them all together until it has formed kind of runny looking consistency (don’t worry it won’t budge from your face, in fact it will stick in your face properly)
Then, apply it into the areas you would like including your neck or body.
Leave it for about 5-7 minutes or till you can feel the skin getting tightened. Then wash it with lukewarm water gently massaging your face and pat it dry softly using a towel.
I hope you all find it useful and use it at least once every week for that softness and glow.
