Coffee & Cocoa Facial Mask




With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we would all love a facial, but some of us simply don’t have the time.  So I have found a recipe that combine’s a Mom’s favourite essentials; Coffee and Cocoa. This is a simple, easy to make homemade facial mask that reduces puffiness and brightens the skin.






4 Tbsp of finely ground coffee

4 Tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder

8 Tbsp of unflavored dairy products, eg whole milk, yogurt, heavy cream etc.  If you have dehydrated skin, you can use oils like olive or coconut, but half the amount

2 Tbsp of Honey (if you have dry skin) or Lemon Juice (if you have oily skin)


  1. Mix cocoa and ground coffee in a bowl.  Add dairy/oil until a smooth paste forms
  2. Stir in honey/lemon juice – warming honey may help with mixing
  3. Apply to face and neck and let dry
  4. Once mask is dry, moisten with a wet wash cloth and rinse off with warm water
  5. Store leftovers in the refrigerator – can last for several days
