DIY: Coffee & Cocoa Facial Mask for All Skin Types


A year or so back when my obsession with skin care and beauty started off, I came across this mask on some site through Google .Coffee and cocoa it is a combination no one can resist, I never knew that these two easily available ingredients could be used in a face pack and have such amazing benefits. In fact nowadays once a month I use it on the entire body (triple the quantity) and feel oh so relaxed!

The presence of coffee in this mask reduces puffiness and redness. This mask helps in reduction of tan, brightening of dull skin and also removal of blackheads and whiteheads to some extent.

My Experience with Coffee & Cocoa Facial Mask:

This mask imparts a cooling sensation to the face and while relaxing with the mask on you can enjoy the lovely yummy smell .This tightens the skin as it dries, and normally dries off within 15-20 mins. On washing it off (I used it on my face, feet and all tanned areas) I noticed an immediate decrease in tan and a bright skin. My skin also became really soft to touch and gave my face an “awake look” as compared to a tired one. It also removed the small whiteheads forming on my cheeks totally and my blackheads a little bit ( though I’m convinced if I had a blackhead  removing tool it would have been better) The leftover mask stayed fine in the fridge for around 4 days and I used it again twice with similar results.

I would definitely suggest you try this, it was my first DIY mask and it still is one of my favorites J
