Today I want to share with you all a face mask that makes my skin silky smooth and radiant but is at the same good enough to eat. This mask smells delicious. I'm sure it also tastes delicious as well. The three ingredients used in this face mask coffee, cocoa and honey are something most of us already have in our kitchen. All three are excellent for your skin and honestly have skin benefits I love. Besides those reasons I love it because the smell of it is just divine and simply uplifts my mood anytime I apply it to my face. You can substitute the honey for lemon juice if your skin is too oily but if it has been dry like mine during this cold weather season you will love what a bit of honey can make your skin look and feel like.
The four of the main skin-saving properties of honey.
Acne- Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention.
Aging- Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging.
Complexion boost- It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
Pores- Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.

Coffee Reduce Eye Puffiness
Caffeine, when applied topically to the skin, constricts the blood vessels under the skin and help reduce swelling and depuff eyes. It is recommended to use eye cream that has caffeine as an active ingredient.
Coffee Exfoliates the Skin Repurpose old coffee grounds by using it as an exfoliator. Rubbing the grounds on your skin will remove dead skin cells and leave you with smoother skin. You can also add olive oil for a more luxurious coffee ground and olive oil scrub.
Coffee Tightens the Skin Caffeine is a known diuretic and can banish cellulite when applied topically.
Coffee Brightens the Skin The dark grinds of coffee beans can be used to brighten up dull skin.
Here is the "recipe" I used for my mask:
1 teaspoon of unsweetened special dark cocoa
1 teaspoon of finely ground coffee
1 teaspoon of organic honey ( use 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice instead for oily skin)
Few drops of water
And let me just say I'm not the only one loving this face mask :).
Of course, the only thing we are missing now is someone to randomly knock at the door :))). I'm not sure if they would be more scared of me or I of them for seeing me in this lovely state :) ....Oh well! Anything for beauty....Right?
