5 DIY Coffee Masks That Will Transform Your Skin

Sharing is caring!

Who doesn’t love coffee? 

I (along with millions of other people) enjoy a nice cup of coffee on most mornings. It helps me feel refreshed, and more awake.

There are also health benefits to drinking coffee: like lowering cancer risk, and being full of antioxidants. 

But did you know it can also do wonders for your skin?

Here’s what coffee can do for your skin:

Benefits of Coffee

  • Coffee is a natural exfoliator
  • Coffee can help stimulate blood flow (thanks to the caffeine)
  • Coffee targets free radicals (which helps clear up your skin and keeps it looking young)
  • Coffee is also anti-inflammatory (goodbye redness!)
  • Coffee is filled with antioxidants (which can help with acne)
  • Coffee can also protect your skin from UV rays

So, you’re probably wondering how you can get these benefits right? 

A simple face mask will do the trick!

Why Do A Coffee Face Mask?

With a coffee face mask you can apply the mask directly to your problem areas, and for those of you that don’t like the taste of coffee – you can still get the good benefits. 

Also it can be a quick option to breathe new life into your skin if you’re going to an event or have something special to do.
