So you have been to every festival going, you have had your summer holidays and now your skin is looking dull and those bags are not going away. Before we start, get yourself a bottle if water!! coffee-beans DIY coffee facemask anyone? Coffee is known to reduce inflammation and redness, it also can be used to reduce the appearance of under-eye circles. It is an excellent exfoliator that helps to remove dead skin cells and rejuvenate tired complexions. Some of the biggest beauty companies around the world use caffeine as an ingredient in face products due to its known tightening effects.

What You’ll Need: 1/2 Cup Organic ground Coffee, Morrisons currently have 2 x 227g packs for £4 ( I would buy 2 as it also makes a beautiful body scrub and cellulite treatment.

1/2 Cup Organic Coconut Oil Cold Pressed, Raw and virgin.

A spoon

A small bowl

Directions Face Mask:

Do a patch test behind your ear 48 hours in advance. If any sign of reaction is shown, do not use.

Melt the coconut oil until it becomes a liquid, Mix together the 1/2 cup of ground Organic Coffee with the 1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil, leave to slightly solidify.

apply to your face and leave for 20 minutes,


For Dark Circles

I make an extra thick version with less oil and more Coffee to use on my under eye. Apply mixture to under eye area, and leave for 20 minutes. Be careful not to rub as the under eye skin is very delicate.

You will be able to keep this mixture in the fridge for up to a week but it will not last that long if you decide to use it as an excellent all over body exfoliator and cellulite treatment.

As Body Exfoliator

Apply mixture to body in circular motions, allow 10 minutes to dry, rinse.

You will be amazed at how such simple, natural, organic ingredients can make such a luxury treatment.
