“AN AMAZING WAY TO PERK UP YOUR SKIN!”
Allow me to welcome you to my weekly skincare regime. Why are coffee masks and scrubs the ideal beauty treatment for skincare? That is because coffee grounds are a good source of antioxidants, employing a major role in fighting premature aging. As well as, repairing damages due to environmental factors of our daily life from pollution and free radicals. Thanks to caffeine, not only does it get us perked up in the morning, but It also can be used to enhance our appearances.
So what else does the DIY mask and scrub consist of? For one, rice milk—perfect for its milky rich substance used as an anti-inflammatory. Rice milk is hypo-allergenic, stems from brown rice, and acts as a natural astringent. The best part is, it works great for dark spots with its gentle whitening effect. Like rice milk, Turmeric powder also has anti-inflammatory properties to calm the skin and also known to reduce scarring. Last but not least, Vegetable Glycerin! It is widely used in cosmetics, made up of properties that adds fluidity to the product. For example, the products we use that feels silky and spread smoothly across the skin, yea that too, contains Glycerin. Now, that you have learned some of the skincare benefits for each ingredient, let’s get to it! I’ll lead you into the steps of my own combination of DIY coffee scrub and mask.
“READY TO SHOW GLOW!”
What to get:
• Vegetable Glycerin
• Organic coffee grounds
• Rice milk
• Turmeric powder
• Facial medium sized brush
Recommended: It is best to use a glass bowl with a lid. I’ll let you know later the purpose of the lid.
How to use:
1. Add 1 tbsp of Turmeric into a glass bowl
2. Add 1 cup of coffee grounds into a glass bowl
3. Add 2 tbsp of Vegetable Glycerin or more until consistency is thick enough for a facial mask or light enough for a facial scrub. (The choice is really on what you would prefer).
4. Finally, pour 4 oz (1/2 cup) of rice milk into the glass bowl and mix.
5. Finally, using the facial brush, liberally spread a nice amount onto your face.
You do not have to use Vegetable Glycerin; you may use a Glycerin of your choice. Same goes with the consistency of the mask or scrub. I noticed the way I make my mask is different from how my best friend likes hers. Therefore, the consistency may vary depending on how you want it. Once you’re done using the mask, it is important to put a lid on it and close it. Then, get it ready to store it in the refrigerator. It needs to be well preserved and cold, in order for the mask to stay fresh. The reason for this, is because for the next use the mask will be cold, which can aid in closing up the pore, all while working on your skin. Please know that when taking the mask out of the refrigerator, it tends to stick together and consume all the moist (slightly dried out). Therefore, you might want to add more Glycerin or rice milk to keep the fluidity for smooth and easy spreading.
