One of my resolutions is to spend more time with my kids and be the mom I want to be. I also want more time for me, I found both tonight- me time- with the kids! I promised my two oldest daughters we would have a girls night in and do facials and paint our nails and toenails. Nothing like spending some quality time with the girls and getting a rejuvenating facial all the while!
This facial mask uses some of my favorite ingredients- Coffee and Cocoa! If you are looking for a mask that will exfoliate, give you a glow and tighten your skin this is the recipe you need!
*4 tablespoons of coffee/espresso grounds (you can use some used grounds from that late-night brew you made, but they will not be as caffeinated as the grounds straight from the bag)
*4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder (that good ol’ Hershey’s)
*8 tablespoons of some sort of dairy product; whole milk, unflavored yogurt, heavy cream, etc.
*2 tablespoons of honey or lemon juice
*Tablespoons and a bowl to mix it all in
Mix together, apply, and let it sit for 5 minutes- I feel 10 years younger (well maybe not 10 years younger but definitely refreshed)!
