1. For Dull, Puffy Skin

Energizing Cacao + Coffee Mask



Thoroughly combine ¼ cup of ground coffee, ? cup of raw cacao powder and ¼ cup of olive oil in a small bowl. Apply evenly to skin.

How It Works

The caffeine and antioxidants in the coffee and cacao work together to stimulate cells and increase blood flow to the face, keeping puffiness and dull, tired skin at bay.

2. For Oily, Acne-Prone Skin

Detoxifying Matcha + Oatmeal Mask


Blend ½ cup cooked oatmeal, 1 TB matcha powder, and fresh juice from ½ lemon until smooth. Apply to skin.

How It Works

Matcha powder has powerful antioxidants that protect and heal damaged skin cells. It’s also packed with chlorophyll, a nutrient that naturally detoxifies, cleanses and reduces sebum production – the oil that clogs pores and causes flare ups.

3. For Dry, Sensitive Skin

Rejuvenating Avocado + Spirulina Mask


Mash 1 ripe avocado and mix in 1 TB raw honey and 1 TB spirulina.

How It Works

The monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil restore moisture to the skin and help with conditions such as rosacea and aging lines. The spirulina powder contains phycocyanin – a powerful antioxidant that fights inflammation and naturally cleanses and detoxifies the skin.
