In the Kitchen: Mother's Day Gift made in the kitchen
Coffee Cocoa Face Mask
- 4 Tbsp. finely ground espresso or coffee beans
- 4 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 8 Tbsp. dairy product. Choose whole milk, heavy cream, yogurt (must be unflavored!), almond milk or coconut milk. Use less dairy if you like a thicker paste. Substitutions are allowed: Try an egg instead of dairy if you are an egg mask lover, or substitute oils, such as olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil or almond oil if you have dehydrated skin. If using oils, halve the amount or it will be too runny
If you have whole beans, finely grind beans in a grinder. Remember, beans should be finely ground so they don't scratch your face. If you just made coffee, you can use the freshly brewed coffee grounds, although they won't contain as much caffeine.
Mix coffee and cocoa powder in a bowl.
Add the dairy product and stir until a smooth paste forms. You can use less dairy if you like a thicker paste.
Apply the paste to your clean face and neck.
Let the mask dry.
