on behalf of my favorite monday morning pick-me-up (ahem, Starbucks!), i thought i'd pay special tribute by posting a super simple face exfoliant/mask for this week's mask monday post.
coffee grounds (even previously brewed) make a fabulous facial exfoliant. say bye-bye to dead skin cells and hello to a fresh glow with a just few simple ingredients.
diy Starbucks coffee facial:
3 tsp finely ground coffee (yes, previously brewed works too! talk about dual purpose)
2 tsp oil (olive, coconut, almond, grapeseed - whatever you have on hand)
1-2 drops tea tree essential oil (optional)
combine all ingredients in a small bowl. gently massage into your face and neck. rinse with warm water and a wash cloth.
this recipe will make 1-2 diy facials. you can double or triple the recipe and store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks if you'd like to make in slightly larger quantities.
