Wake Up to Glowing Skin with a DIY Coffee Face Mask

No morning is complete without a strong cup (or three) of coffee. But did you know, in addition to energizing you to tackle the day, coffee is also great for waking up your skin? The magical bean exfoliates, soothes inflammation and reduces redness. Here, our recipe for a morning coffee facial scrub.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup ground coffee
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

How to Make A DIY Coffee Face Mask:

Step 1: Mix together the milk, coffee, honey and lemon juice in a bowl.

Step 2: Apply the mixture to your face in a circular motion, gently scrubbing away any dead skin.

Step 3: Leave on for 20 minutes before wiping off with a clean towel and diving face first into your day.
