DIY Coconut Coffee Face Mask

What woman doesn't love taking care of herself? *hand raised* Being a female can be expensive, so I like to find ways to treat myself and stick to a budget.

Some of my favorite DIY projects include homemade scrubs. You can find my Coffee Lip Scrub here, and read about how to make my Sugar Lip Scrub here & my favorite body exfoliant, the Baby Soft Sprinkled Sugar here.

Face masks are great to use periodically to treat your skin and bring it back to life. 

You will need:
2 tablespoons room temperature coconut oil
2 tablespoons coffee grounds

To make:
Mix the coconut oil in a small bowl alone until it's smooth in texture, like frosting
Add in the coffee grounds and continue to mix until combined
Rub on your face in circular motions
Leave on for 10-15 minutes & then rinse off

 I love trying out face masks from different places. Some of my favorite ones are Cupcake from Lush which is great for oily skin, Glamglow Supermud from Sephora because I love how it pulls out the impurities from my skin and the Clariflying Clay from Skinceuticals which has done wonders for my often problematic skin. 
It's nice to have some at home options also which is why I chose to try the coconut coffee one. 

I chose to make one with coffee because I have read that many beauty companies are using caffeine to to help brighten & tighten your most beautiful features. Coffee helps gently exfoliate the dead skin and leave it smooth without irritation.
Coconut oil is great for softening your skin, breaking down dead cells, and hydrating your skin. 
This mask will leave you feeling refreshed and your face smelling great. Treat yourself and enjoy this one soon, just don't eat it. 

What's your favorite beauty DIY?

    The meaning of this is that you literally get rid of fat by eating coconut fat (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
