Coffee Mask

The coffee mask is a quick and easy way to rejuvenate your skin and give it an amazing glow. It is absolutely necessary for some people to kick start their day in morning. Coffee is considered such an energizer due to its main content caffeine. Caffeine has a lot of beneficial properties for our health. It is said to protect against diabetes, certain cancers, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, and may also reduce UV damage. It even helps to boost your workout performance, improves reaction time, logical reasoning, and blood circulation.

In the recent times the beauty products all include caffeine as an important ingredient. Caffeine has some miraculous qualities for the benefit of our skin. Some of the benefits are:

1) Caffeine stimulates blood flow – which can aid collagen production and help to target a range of skin conditions.

 2) Coffee has the same pH as your skin – so it won’t damage or dry it out.

 3) Coffee is high in antioxidants – which target the free-radicals that cause many skin imperfections.

Caffeine is used as an anti-aging ingredient in skincare. Antioxidants make it a potent free radical fighter, protecting skin against premature aging. Caffeine also draws excess fluids out of cells, creating a tightening and toning effect. Caffeine has natural anti-inflammatory properties which help to calm swelling and redness. It is good for acne and other inflammatory skin issues as well.  If you have dark spots, redness or wrinkles due to sun exposure, then you must include coffee in your skin care.

Now that you are well aware of the amazing benefits of Caffeine, let’s try this simple and easy DIY face mask.

Ingredients: Freshly grounded Coffee, Honey, Coconut oil, Bowl, Spoon

Method: Take 2 spoons of the freshly grounded coffee; add one generous spoon of honey, add one teaspoon of coconut oil and mix the three ingredients well into a thick paste. Your Coffee face mask is ready.

Now apply the mask onto your face and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Note: Please wear a messy or rough T-shirt while you’re waiting for the mask to do its magic as it tends to make some mess.

You can avail all these benefits if you also try this Mask at home. Go on and grab those ingredients and get started. If you do try this mask please do let me know and share your thoughts.

Disclaimer: As with any skin care regimen, a test patch is always recommended to see if your skin is allergic to any of the ingredients. This post is only for informative purposes. Please discontinue use if any of the ingredients do not react well with your skin.

Have a beautiful Day!

Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Face Cream

Depending on where we all live, we are very well aware that weather conditions can be extreme, harsh, and unpredictable for our skin; especially the SUN. Hence, the need of a kickass Sunscreen that does it all. I have been using this product for quite some time now and I have to say that it is by far the best sunscreen I have ever tried. I have a very sensitive skin and I had hit a rough path with my skin freaking out on me due to the harsh sun rays and it was a struggle to even step out of the house to do my daily errands. I tried a lot of things from skin medications to supplements but nothing seemed to be working. Eventually I started being careful and picky about the products I was using on my face. I set upon the journey of trying different products to see which ones worked for me and gave me good results. Throughout this journey I stumbled upon Clinique’s Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Face Cream and it gave me the best results. This product is not sticky and does not leave any white residue behind like some other sunscreens and it lasts all day and I have never needed to reapply it during the day. I would really recommend it for everyone with sensitive skin and others as well because I have experienced the amazing transformation in my skin after using this product, and I strongly believe it’s worth the try if you are suffering from sensitive skin issues or in general, if you are looking for a new sunscreen. Since it did wonders for my skin, it has become a definite part of my daily morning routine. Clinique has used innovative solar smart technology that stabilizes high level protection against aging and burning effects of UVA and UVB rays. This technology triggers a repair that helps prevent signs of aging with solar activated antioxidants that help prevent visible damage. The formulation also includes a boost of antioxidants to shield skin from environmental aggressors. This is an oil-free, non-acnegenic, water and sweat resistant, and dermatologist tested product. I hope that this helps you along your journey to finding the best skin care. As always do leave me your feedback as to what you guys think.
