In need of a quick coffee pick me up? Well, you’re just in luck as we have a new beauty secret that has been taking over TikTok: Coffee Eye Mask. In this blog post, we will discuss how you can make this eye mask, its benefits, and our BAZZAAL product recommendations!
How do you make the eye mask?
Before we get into the benefits of this eye mask, here is a quick recipe as to how to make it.
- 2 tsp of coffee grounds (either or is good)
- 1 tsp of honey (optional: can also use plain yogurt)
- A couple of spoonfuls of warm water (make sure it’s warm, not hot!)
Mix all the ingredients until it creates a paste. Apply a thin layer underneath your eyes and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Once the time is up, be sure to gently wash away with lukewarm water.
What are the benefits of this eye mask?
While drinking coffee is a great morning booster, it also has numerous benefits for your skin, especially when used topically. Applying this mask under your eyes can help reduce puffiness, as it contains caffeine that stimulates blood flow and helps de-puff the area. Additionally, it’s also known to have antioxidant properties that can help fight free radicals (molecules that damage your skin) and prevent premature aging.
Coffee is also a natural exfoliant and can help remove dead skin cells, making the skin smoother and brighter. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness, making it great for people who have sensitive skin.
What are some dupes if I don’t have time to make this mask?
