Coffee restores skin freshness.
Coffee returns skin freshness, beauty and health. Coffee scrubs and masks.
What could be nicer than beautiful and well-groomed facial skin? But in itself it will not be like that, especially with age. This means that she needs regular care. For this purpose, scrubs and face masks made of coffee are suitable — effective means to cleanse the skin of dead skin cells, refresh it and give a light tan.
They are prepared mainly from natural coffee. Instant coffee is not suitable for such purposes. The main ingredient here is coffee grounds after drinking a cup of aromatic drink without sugar. Ground grains are also used.

The remaining coffee grounds must be mixed with fat cottage cheese (in equal proportions). A scrub is applied to the face, which needs to be gently massage for about 1-2 minutes. Then it must be left for another 10 minutes, then rinse with water, preferably at room temperature.
Cleansing dry skin and removing peeling

All this is well mixed and applied to the face, while easily massaging the skin. After 10 minutes, rinse off the mask with warm water.
