Revealing secrets is always a fun! We are always on the quest to find the hidden secret; the armor of elegance and the secret of one’s beauty. We try all ways possible to get “her look” or “her beauty secret” through gossips, continuous questioning and draining our energy searching on internet; raising our stress level to the maximum high! I wonder if girls ever show such height of interest and curiosity in knowing other things or maybe even trying to know who the president of our country is! (Yes! I am not kidding. Many don’t know it! *shame*). But nevertheless, I am not here to test your G.K. but to ease your stress by revealing to you two such golden secrets which will make you go gaga!
Exciting as it sounds, these beauty recipes originate from the likes of the “Egyptian Vixens”! (Well you should know ONE by now.) Cleopatra! Remember?? Yes! Feel like a queen and indulge in sinful elegance with the two “never before” recipes. Here we go!
RE-ENERGIZING COFFEE SCRUB :
Imbue your face with new life and vitality with this playful coffee scrub. Coffee?? Yeah coffee! I know coffee is a quintessential friend in all the joints that mark its presence on every street corner. From being a favorite sip for love birds and a hot drink for the gossip mongers; from being a relaxing drink for the office-goers to the tourists who drop by for a good drink, coffee has done so much! But that doesn’t end the greatness of coffee. It has so much to do; especially for your skin!
Don’t believe me? But you believe in science isn’t it? Science has proved that this ‘wonder drink’ can do magic on your skin. Coffee is high in antioxidants which fight free radicals. It is a shield protecting us from harmful sun rays. Yes a natural SPF! It makes skin soft, smooth and glowing by regulating the collagen growth and enhances blood circulation very effectively.
Voila!! What more do you need? Let’s give our skin our favorite drink!
3 tbsps of organic coffee grounds
1 tbsp of organic olive/coconut oil
1/3 tsp of organic honey
- Cleanse your face with cool or even normal water to get rid of all impurities.
- Powder the coffee grounds to the grainy consistency. Don’t grind it too much, else you can’t exfoliate and get its effect.
- Mix well coffee powder (grains), oil and honey.
- Apply the mixture on the face and gently scrub in circular motion for2-3 minutes.
- Wash well and pat dry.
- You can even keep it for 15 minutes, scrub and wash
There you are! Refreshed, restored and regenerated skin in minutes!
The magic of three:
Wondering why coffee has honey and oil as its partners? Well everyone knows the basic routine for a healthy skin; exfoliate tone and moisturize. And I bet there are people like me who are lazy to do things separately. This recipe is a one-stop for all the tasks. Coffee exfoliates, honey tones and soothes the skin and oil moisturizes the skin. This is the magic of three in one go.
Go get your dewy, supple and radiant skin with the magic trio!
Now that you know the secret of the magical trio for face, I have something for your body too!
MILK AND HONEY DIP (BATH):
I was very skeptical about the milk and honey bath (yikes!). But it is exciting as it sounds. Milk has a very important ingredient called ‘lactic acid’ which gently yet effectively exfoliates the dead layers of the skin. Honey on the other hand deeply tones and moisturizes the skin giving the soft and supple glow. And the wonders that this combo does! Ahhh! More than worth!
- Turn on the water (lukewarm) in the tub or even in a bucket.
- Mix 1 cup of milk with ½ cup honey in a bowl and run under the tap water, so that everything dissolves well. And yes we don’t want to waste anything.
- Immerse yourself in the tub and relax for ten minutes to feel the magic. Or you can even take a quick bath in it.
Heal, Soothe, Soften and Moisturize your body. Your body will thank you for it.
And yes, our skin needs some royal treatment at times, just like we do.
So there you go! Kick start with the re-energizing coffee scrub and uplift your beauty with the magical milk and honey bath and glow like a QUEEN!
