7 Effective Pregnancy-safe DIY Coffee Face Masks

Nothing instantly wakes your senses up as the earth like fragrance of coffee. Besides kickstarting your day and boosting your energy levels, coffee can also improve your tired complexion and rejuvenate your skin. In fact, a DIY coffee mask is the best way to hit the refresh button on your skin. Coffee is an antioxidant that has anti-ageing, exfoliating, and photoprotective properties. DIY coffee face masks are simple to prepare, smell heavenly, and do not contain any chemical additives like commercial face packs. 

Benefits Of Coffee Face Masks

Coffee has exfoliating properties that help remove damaged skin cells and keep the skin smooth and soft
  • Coffee prevents free radical damage: Coffee contains caffeic acid, which is a well-known phenolic antioxidant. This acid helps nuetralise harmful free radicals and prevents damage caused by oxidative stress (one of the main causes of premature ageing). Thus, using a DIY coffee mask can keep your skin youthful.
  • Coffee gently exfoliates the skin: The coffee grounds have a coarse texture. When massaged on the skin, they can help exfoliate it, remove dead skin cells, and eliminate sebum and dirt from the pores. It also helps improve your skin texture.
  • Coffee prevents UV damage: Coffee has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from UV radiation, and prevent the signs of photoageing like hyperpigmentation, dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • Coffee prevents fat accumulation: Coffee has caffeine, which is used in many anti-cellulite cosmetic products. Using a coffee face mask can help prevent fat accumulation in your skin cells and reduce facial fat. It also helps restore skin elasticity and keeps it taut.
