Coffee is rich in antioxidants which makes it great for dry and tired skin. Honey makes the skin smooth and very soft, oat flakes are great for the peeling and cinnamon will give unprecedented shine to your skin.
The ingredients presented below are related for the face mask. If you want to make a mixture for the body you need to duplicate the recipe.
-1 cup coffee grounds
-2 tablespoons crushed oat flakes
-1 tablespoon honey
-1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
Mix the coffee, oat flakes, honey and cinnamon in small bowl. Mix until you get a mixture, with the texture of a paste, then gently apply the mix to the skin (no rubbing!), while you are avoiding contact with the eyes. Leave the mixture to stand 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
If you have sensitive skin, reduce the amount of cinnamon or completely switch off.
