Mocha Facial Mask
Mix equal parts finely ground espresso and unsweetened cocoa powder until smooth (2 Tbsp. of each for 1 application will do with a little extra leftover). This by itself can be put into a cute jar with a ribbon or cellophane bag in a coffee cup with mixing directions to use as a small gift.
Next, mix with about 3 Tbsp. of milk to make a smooth paste. Add the milk slowly, and you will notice when it forms a good consistency. You can also use almond milk or coconut milk if you want to go dairy-free.
Spread over your face and neck, avoiding the eyes and mouth.
Let it sit for 15 minutes while you pick up a good book and then rinse well with warm water.
