Coffee & Honey Face Mask
This combination could provide you with amazing results. Coffee’s anti-oxidant formula and honey’s moisturising feature will provide you with a glowing and moisturised skin. Coffee also has the ability to increase the blood circulation, which will provide you with a healthy skin.
- 1 tbsp. of ground organic coffee
- 1 tbsp. of honey
Mix the ingredients well in a small bowl to make a fine paste. Apply the scrub on the face and give a gentle circular massage to your skin except for eye area. Leave on the for 20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water and a damp cloth.
Green Tea Face & Body Exfoliator
The antioxidants and tannin's in green tea help shrink blood vessels around the delicate eye area, alleviating swelling and puffiness, as well as healing blemishes and soothing the complexion. Antioxidants are also our most powerful weapon in the fight against ageing.
- 1 TB dried green tea leaves (2-4 tea bags depending on size of tea bag)
- 1 cup organic white sugar or soft brown sugar
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 TB honey
Combine all the ingredients in a medium size bowl. Store the exfoliator in an air-tight container in a cool, dark place. Apply the scrub to your cleansed face and give a gentle circular massage to your skin except for eye area, wipe off with lukewarm wet cloth. Repeat this remedy for 2-3 times in a week for best results.
Coconut Oil & Honey Face Scrub
The light texture of coconut oil enables it to easily spread and seep deeply into the skin pores, moisturising deeply and thoroughly. Whilst deep in the pores the oil attracts protein molecules and helps to repair the collagen layer which gives a radiant glow and keeps your skin looking young and fresh. Honey is a great natural antibacterial which is great for acne treatment and prevention.
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 tablespoon ground rolled/old fashioned oats
- 1 tablespoon raw organic honey
Combine coconut oil, honey, and ground oats and mix well. Apply the scrub to your cleansed face and give a gentle circular massage to your skin except for eye area. Keep it for 20 minutes and wipe it off with a wet cloth. Repeat this remedy for 2-3 times in a week to get a clear skin.
Coffee & Olive Oil Face & Body Polish
Coffee grounds are loaded with anti oxidants that help to rejuvenate the skin. Finely ground coffee works as an excellent cleanser and scrub to brighten, tighten and soften the skin. The caffeine in coffee increases circulation thus causing the skin to appear firmer and smoother.
- 1/2 cup Freshly ground coffee beans
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar (or oatmeal for sensitive skin)
- 1/2 cup of olive oil
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1tsp of vitamin e oil
Mix all the ingredients together well. While in shower massage the scrub on your face as well as your body in circular motion, leave on for few minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Store in an air tight container.
Charcoal Power Cleanse
Charcoal can has amazing cleansing power, it draws out toxins and it is perfect for those who tend to struggle with acne, oily skin or blackheads. Activated Charcoal and bentonite clay can easily be found online (Amazon) or at your local health store.
- 1/2 tsp Activated Charcoal
- 1/2 tsp Bentonite Clay
- 1/4 tsp Coconut Oil, melted or very soft
- 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Water
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl or container using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. It is very important that you are not using any metal utensils or containers to mix or store the ingredients as the bentonite clay will absorb the metals and becomes less effective.
Apply the mask to face; being careful not to get any on your clothes (the charcoal can leave a stain). Leave the mask on for about 10 minutes; wash it off with warm water and a soft cloth. Because this mask draws out so many toxins its recommend you apply a hydrating moisturiser afterwards so your skin doesn’t dry out. Repeat every 2-4 weeks.
*Notes; Although charcoal is a 100% natural ingredient, it can be very strong, so we recommend testing out this face mask recipe on some small part of your skin before applying it to your face.
This recipe only makes enough mixture for one generous mask. Do not make more than you will need, because it will not store well! It will dry out pretty easily and you won’t want it to go to waste.
