Anyone who knows me knows I am an unrepentant coffee junkie, I joke to
my friends that my longest and most successful relationship has been
with coffee as we are in sync in a way that defies all odds. So naturally everything that relates to coffee (including a possible coffee therapy tip) I am interested in.
The Coffee Treatment discovery
A few months ago I came across an article talking about a coffee therapy face mask and face scrub, I was skeptical because I never want to see good coffee go to waste and in my caffeine induced brain using your coffee for as a mask or a scrub is a downright sacrilege but I was intrigued, so I went on a fact finding mission (another thing about me, is I love to research, I research to the last detail). I started reading up on what all the rave was with this coffee therapy facial treatment, as it
involves a very important thing in my life plus I would try anything coffee related at least once.
After my extensive research, I decided to ask someone who understood and shared the same feelings about coffee as me and discuss my recent discovery of the coffee facial treatments. When

1. Get a dry bowl.
2. Put 3/4 tablespoon of ground coffee beans.
3. 2/4 teaspoon of coconut oil (depending on how smooth you want
texture of scrub).
4. Mix thoroughly until oil is well mixed.
5. Apply on face and leave on for 10 minutes.
6. Rinse with cool water.
The change was instant, my skin came out brighter and by morning of the next day, my acne had dried up and the black spots on my face had faded. I felt like a million bucks.
This just solidified my love for coffee. Coffee is the gift that keeps
