The mere thought of having coffee and honey on the breakfast table is ‘yum’. But do you know that honey and coffee are beneficial for your skin too. If you want to know how these natural ingredients like honey and coffee can give you best skin, go through the entire article.

Cleansing & Exfoliation :
A mask made up of honey and coffee does have cleansing and exfoliating properties. Honey is anti-septic and also anti-bacterial. Coffee beans can exfoliate the skin’s surface and removes dead skin cells which can otherwise clog pores and helps in formation of blemishes.
To make the scrub, take ¼ cup of jojoba oil, ¼ cup of ground coffee beans, 1 and 1/2 teaspoonful of honey, 1 teaspoonful of baking soda. Stir everything, and leave it to steep for 10 minutes. After cleaning your face, put on the mixture and keep it for 15 minutes.

Anti-Ageing :
Honey is an anti-ageing agent, which can help one to prevent those fine lines and wrinkles from appearing on the skin. First cleanse the face, then apply the honey and coffee mask on the face. Keep it for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse it off with water, and apply moisturizer.
