• 2 Tbsp ground coffee
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp honey

Coffee is usually associated with waking people up in the morning but it’s also known to perk up your skin! Coffee contains antioxidants and natural exfoliants, which help to slough away dry, dead skin and reveal a real glow! In addition, the caffeine can be used to treat redness, inflammation, and even reduce the appearance of under-eye circles (because it reduces the build up of blood under your eyes)! Incorporating caffeine into your skin care routine can even grant you evenly toned, smooth skin. Try this fast, easy and effective face-mask with your cup of joe in the morning.
