Caffeinate my…WHAT?

…Skin! 

SO since my 29th birthday has come and gone, I have decided to take better care of my skin, and myself in general. I have never worried about wrinkles, skin spots, etc., but I realize there comes a time for everyone to think about the inevitable.  To kick start my new skin regime, I decided to try a DIY face mask that seemed super easy to do (uses only 2 ingredients!).

DIY Coffee Face Mask
Ground coffee
Milk (I used whole milk)

I followed the recipe found here.

So simple, but very effective. Applying it was kind of awkward as seen here:

And just like the blog above mentioned, my face started tingling after about 10 minutes of having it on. I gotta tell ya…the smell coming off my face was amazing. That alone makes me want to do it again, haha!

I left the mask on for about 25 minutes or so. I’m going to be completely honest with you guys: washing it off was probably the worst part about it. I opted for the full shower method since I needed to get ready for the rest of the day. As I was washing the grounds off my face, I noticed the mess. Coffee grounds everywhere in the shower. Whoops!

After the shower, I definitely noticed smoother skin. My face felt more elastic! And that’s only after one session of this super easy face mask. I definitely plan on doing this again. Maybe a once a month coffee spa day? 😉 Another SUCCESS!
