—-you can add more to use for the skin, in the shower too—-
The benefits to this wonderful ingredient is simple.

Coffee is known to reduce inflammation and redness. It also reduces the appearance of under eye bags.

As an exfoliator, it removes dead skin, and “wakes up” a tired complexion. And the caffeine in coffee helps to tighten the skin, therefore making you look younger. Did you know, it works for skin cellulite too? 

For coconut oil, we all know the benefits. It’s a great moisturizer, and it contains great antioxidants that help to protect against  premature ageing and works well for acne prone skin.

If you have sun burned or damaged skin, you’ll be happy to know that coffee can help to reverse sun damage on the skin. So my naija people, after a long day in the hot sun, just use this scrub on your face and the results are brilliant. 

You can use this great scrub  2-3 times a week.

Do you have home made face masks you use? Have you tried this face mask before? Let me know in the comments section!
