We often use coffee as a daily energizer, to charge us up in the morning or when feeling sleepy in the afternoon. The caffeine acts on the body to super charge it and keeps you alert and feeling refreshed. Now did you ever think that maybe coffee could refresh your face also? That’s right, coffee can be used in face packs and face masks to charge up the skin and make your skin glow. Coffee is full of antioxidants which reduce damage caused by free radicals and smoothens out the skin. It also acts as an exfoliating agent and can soften the skin and remove blemishes and dirt particles. The caffeine and antioxidant content together treat signs of early ageing and can keep your skin looking youthful for a long time.

These coffee based face packs are very easy to prepare. And we are here to show you how.

  1. Coffee And Honey Face Pack

After a long and hectic week, when you are looking for some way to pamper yourself, you need not go to the salon and blow up your paycheck on expensive skin care treatments. Instead you can prepare your own honey and coffee face mask and relax and rejuvenate your skin from the comfort of home. All you need to do is combine these two ingredients together and apply it on your face. Massage it in circular movements all over the face and neck and let it sit for ten to fifteen minutes. Then rinse it off with cool water and pat your face dry. The texture of the coffee exfoliates the skin and removes dirt particles while its antioxidant properties remove the dullness and tiredness from the skin. Honey moisturizes the skin and helps to keep it feeling soft and smooth. You can apply this face pack once a week and enter the office with energized and smooth skin every Monday.

  1. Coffee And Oatmeal Face Pack

Coffee and oatmeal both act like natural exfoliating agents and this is a very good pack to use after a lot of exposure to pollution or after a hectic workout where you perspired a lot. Adding yogurt to this face pack can also help as it softens the skin and tightens the pores thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles and keeps the skin glowing. This pack also helps to remove cellulite from other parts of the body such as arms and thighs. Mix all the ingredients together and apply this pack to your face. Once again, rub it in gentle circular movements and then rinse it off after 30 minutes. As this is a highly exfoliating face mask, it is best to use it only once or twice in a month.

  1. Coffee And Olive Oil Face Pack

If you have dry skin, winters can be a dreadful time. This face pack can help you keep your skin moisturized and healthy all through the cold months. The coffee powder exfoliates the skin removing the layers of flaky skin and dead skin cells. The olive oil on the other hand enters the pores and nourishes the skin from within leaving it soft and well moisturized. You can apply this pack twice a week particularly in the winter months to ensure your skin stays soft and bright and doesn’t succumb to the winter dullness. However if you are applying this pack more than once a week, remember not to scrub your skin too hard as dry skin can be sensitive to exfoliation.

  1. Coffee And Cocoa Face Pack

Have you heard of a luxurious chocolate facial? Today, we are going to tell you how you can treat yourself to that at home. All you need is some coffee powder, cocoa powder and a splash of honey. When mixed together, this face pack works wonders on the skin due to its antioxidant properties.

Treat yourself to these wonderful coffee face packs and go out there to flaunt radiant, soft and supple skin.
