DIY Coffee Face Masks For Glowing Skin

Hey coffee aficionados, we know that you wouldn’t even dream of starting your day without a hot aromatic cup of coffee but did you know that your favourite ingredient has more magical powers than just being your morning alarm? Apart from the health benefits like improved physical performance, fat reduction, controlling diabetes and more, coffee has remarkable properties that work marvelously on your skin. Although the market is packed with various coffee face masks, it’s hard to delineate why disburse when you can DIY.

Before we jump right into the exfoliating coffee face mask recipes with ingredients that even skin experts will approve of, let’s see why we should love coffee even more:

Benefit 1: Rich source of antioxidants: Similar to your body, your skin needs a good amount of antioxidants to battle against the free radicals (pollutants, germs, etc.) that further damages the skin tissues. The antioxidants in coffee face masks benefit in encouraging and supporting the skin’s natural defenses.

 Benefit 2: Combat signs of ageing: TBH, you are gorgeous at any age, but that doesn’t mean that you can relax and accept the wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin and more. Coffee has been proven to combat the signs of ageing (not wisdom) and bless you with younger-looking radiant skin

Benefits of using coffee for skin

Benefit 3: Reduce inflammation: Pals! Redness, acne, blemishes and hyperpigmentation is something everyone deals with. Don’t just worry, use a coffee face mask rich in anti-inflammatory properties that fights off harmful bacteria and calms the affected area.

Benefit 4: Promotes healthy skin: Coffee is a great exfoliator and potent in B vitamins that promote healthy cell turnover and improve skin hydration. The exfoliating coffee face mask wipes out all the dead skin cells, promotes blood circulation and makes your skin smooth, soft and brighter.

Benefit 5: Reduce dark circles: The caffeine content in coffee beans treat stubborn dark circles by encouraging the blood vessels. The increase in blood flow tightens the skin and reduces the buildup of fluid under your eyes.

Now that you are convinced that we are not favoring coffee because we are coffee addicts ourselves, here are the best homemade recipes for coffee face masks that will visibly show results.
