This exfoliating, inflammation-reducing mask is just what your face needs this season
We’re the first to admit that we kick-start most days with a cup of coffee. After all, lack of sleep is a killer, and coffee is definitely our saving grace. Turns out it’s a miracle worker in the beauty department, too.
Caffeine works as an anti-inflammatory and has the ability to de-puff swollen skin. It also has the benefit of tightening the skin and reducing under eye circles, which is why so many skin care brands contain the ingredient. Caffeine is also easily absorbed into the skin so the results are almost instant.
Here’s our favorite DIY coffee facemask.
