Nutrition and Health Tip: Easy Face Masks

Ever had that wonderful face bloat after a night of drinking and/or consuming an entire tray of cookies. No? Just me? Well in my defense, a girl only turns 21 once.

Anyways, sometimes after any of those things or just a night of not much sleep, your face is looking a little less than prime and possibly a bit puffy. Especially during the winter, when the dry air leaves your skin a little lackluster. But thankfully for you, with each year that I live in Santa Cruz, I become a bit more hippier and a lot more crunchy granola, which means I’m a big fan of using food and things around you to create beauty products. This is also could just mean I’m a cheap college student.

Here’s an easy face mask to help make you look instantly better and feel a little less bloat-y.

**How to Make a DIY Face Mask**

What You’ll Need
2 tablespoons ground coffee
1/2 tablespoon honey (unfiltered or raw is best)
2 tablespoons unflavored yogurt (I use plain Greek yogurt)

What to Do
Mix all of the ingredients together. Apply to your face for about 15-20 minutes until dry. Then lightly scrub off your face in the shower.

I recommend doing this in the morning as the coffee grinds wake you up a bit and make you feel more energetic. You also might have a bit left over, but you can save it and reuse it.

Also, here’s another little tip. If, after your face mask is washed off, you notice an unfortunate zit trying to ruin your day, put some apple cider vinegar on it, it’ll help reduce the inflammation and redness. According to My Big Fat Greek Wedding windex is the answer, but we in the crunchy hippie community know, apple cider vinegar is the true answer to all.
