Instead of drinking coffee in the morning, energize your skin with a coffee face cream.
The cream gives you a smooth boost in the morning. The caffeine is good for your blood circulation and also makes your skin a bit more firm. As if your skin just drank a coffee and is ready to face the day.
What you need for 100 gr
5 gr cacao butter
5 gr beeswax
10 gr lanolin
40 gr almond oil
40 ml strong coffee
1 teaspoon food starch
A clean recipient
Optional: A few drops vitamin E (Tocopherol) in order to conserve the cream.
How to make it
Melt the cacao butter, beeswax and lanolin together in a pan.
Then add the almond oil.
Mix the food starch together with the coffee. Make sure that you have no clumps.
Add the mix of food starch and coffee to the other ingredients in the pan. Stir well. Remove from the heat.
Optional: add a couple of drops of vitamin E. Continue stirring until the cream gets thicker.
Before it gets too cold and the cream hardens, pour it in a recipient. Let it cool off completely before putting on the lid. Tomorrow morning put some cream on your face and rock the day!
