Happy New Year everyone! We disconnected around the holidays to enjoy uninterrupted time with family and boy was it great. But, it feels good to be back here with you guys, back on track, and starting afresh in the new year. I don't know about you guys but all of us over here agreed that skincare would be a priority for us going into the New Year and all our resolutions reflected that. So for the first blogpost of the year, we are dishing up a super simple and easy DIY face scrub + mask. It's all of 2 ingredients that we guarantee you already have around the house... I mean, let's be honest, once any DIY recipe starts going over 3+ ingredients, we start to check out. Sure, we're open to a little DIY but let's keep it simple people! So don't worry -- it really is simple. And you know what else, the beginning of the new year is exhausting. The holidays can take a ton of work, maybe your mother-in-law was even more critical than usual, or your grandma even more pushy about why you don't have a boyfriend yet... Girl, treat. your. self. After this first week back to work wondering what day/time it is, curl up on the couch tonight with some take-out pad thai and get this face mask on!
What You'll Need:
- 2 tbsp finely ground coffee
- 2 tbsp honey
Simply mix both ingredients together and scrub onto your face!
Suggestions: Use the back of a spoon for a slow application, cooling senstation and very therapeutic face-painting session. Or simply use your fingers and rub all over your face! Leave on for a few minutes if you'd like or rinse right away with warm water. (You could even mix this up before you go in the shower and use it there for less mess!)
