Hi Coffee & Glitter readers...I'm really excited to be here today thanks to Sarah. I have a fun DIY to share with you, but first let me introduce myself.
I'm Emelia & I write over at Dream Big & Buy the Shoes about everything from how to bring back the spark in your relationship, what works for me as a blogger, fun recipes I like to try, handy DIY projects that make great gifts & co-host a link-up geared to empower other women and create a community of self love.
What woman doesn't love taking care of herself? *hand raised* Being a female can be expensive, so I like to find ways to treat myself and stick to a budget.
Some of my favorite DIY projects include homemade scrubs. You can find my Coffee Lip Scrub here, and read about how to make my Sugar Lip Scrub here & my favorite body exfoliant, the Baby Soft Sprinkled Sugar here.
Face masks are great to use periodically to treat your skin and bring it back to life.
You will need:
2 tablespoons room temperature coconut oil
2 tablespoons coffee grounds
Mix the coconut oil in a small bowl alone until it's smooth in texture, like frosting
Add in the coffee grounds and continue to mix until combined
Rub on your face in circular motions
Leave on for 10-15 minutes & then rinse off
I chose to make one with coffee because I have read that many beauty companies are using caffeine to to help brighten & tighten your most beautiful features. Coffee helps gently exfoliate the dead skin and leave it smooth without irritation.
Coconut oil is great for softening your skin, breaking down dead cells, and hydrating your skin.
This mask will leave you feeling refreshed and your face smelling great. Treat yourself and enjoy this one soon, just don't eat it.
Thank you to Sarah for letting me guest post and share another new experiment of mine. I hope you stop by my blog to say hi, I would love to meet you.
What's your favorite beauty DIY?
