Coffee is the drink that keeps many people awake every morning. But your skin can also benefit from caffeine to look younger, brighter, and smoother. Today we teach you how to prepare a homemade and natural coffee mask.

There are hundreds of cosmetics on the market that use caffeine, but they are not necessary to take advantage of the properties of coffee. There is nothing like a good homemade mask to remedy acne, wrinkles and, in this case, dark circles and cellulite. Do you want to know how? Continue reading.

Coffee and honey face mask

On the face, caffeine has a tightening effect that significantly reduces wrinkles, exfoliates dead cells and stimulates blood circulation, promoting skin regeneration. On the other hand, honey hydrates and provides vitamins and minerals that prevent aging.

The ingredients you need to make the mask are:

  • Coffee grounds: 1 tablespoon. In Italian coffee machines it stays in the same place where you put it, while in American coffee machines it stays trapped in the filter. That is, they serve you the remains of the coffee that you have already prepared and they go to the trash.
  • Honey: 2 tablespoons.
  • Optional: olive oil, coconut oil, aloe vera, milk or any other natural product that you have at home.

Preparation:

  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until you get a thick paste.
  • Apply all over the face, massaging gently and leave for 15 minutes.
  • Remove with plenty of water.
  • Repeat the process once or twice a week, depending on the needs of your skin.
  • The results that you will notice on the face are immediate. Your skin will be much more energetic, luminous and radiant thanks to caffeine!

· For dark circles

Dark circles form around the eyes, a region of the face where you should avoid applying a mask like this. The skin is very sensitive and can cause irritation. Some claim that the use of caffeine reduces puffiness and dark circles, however, we do not recommend applying it without the prior supervision of a doctor or a dermatologist. It is the best way to avoid adverse reactions.

Benefits of coffee and egg mask for hair

Coffee masks are used to strengthen hair, prevent hair loss and restore the shine it has lost. In addition, the egg stimulates its growth and is further strengthened thanks to the presence of proteins that protect the hair fibers and hair follicles.

  • 2 tablespoons of coffee.
  • 1 egg.
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil for dry hair.
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon for greasy hairs.

How to do it?

  • Beat the egg in a bowl and add the coffee and other products.
  • Spread throughout the hair from the scalp to the ends.
  • Massage the root to remove dead skin layers and promote regeneration.
  • Wrap the hair with a towel or shower cap and leave for 20 minutes.
  • Go to the shower and wash your hair with your usual shampoo.

With this mask, you will recover your curls if you have curly hair, it will look energetic again if it was dry and mistreated, and you will reduce frizz if it was very damaged.

How to make a coffee mask for cellulite

Cellulite is one of the great enemies for the aesthetics of women. It occurs due to the accumulation of fat in the form of adipocyte nodules. But adipose tissue can be “burned” with a coffee mask by spreading it over the affected area (legs, buttocks, thighs, abdomen, etc.). With it, you will be able to reduce measures and eliminate orange peel in a few weeks, since it promotes blood circulation and stimulates the metabolism of adipocytes.

First of all, let’s see what are the necessary cooking ingredients:

  • Ground and used coffee.
  • Natural mineral water.

The procedure to prepare the coffee mask is as follows:

  1. Put the coffee in a bowl and add the water. In proportion, there must be less water because we want a thick paste, not a liquid product. Go testing the quantities that best suit your needs.
  2. Stir well until a homogeneous mixture is formed.
  3. Apply the mask and massage the area with cellulite.
  4. Leave on for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove with plenty of warm water.
