While dishing out recipes from her new cookbook, Eva’s Kitchen, this week, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria shared another type of recipe: her homemade face mask!
Eva’s skin is always incredibly radiant, and now we know why—she exfoliates weekly with her homemade face mask, made of coffee, lemon juice, and olive oil. The coffee grounds remove the dry, flaky skin cells that make you look dull, and—because they contain caffeine—rev up circulation, while lemon juice brightens and olive oil hydrates.
To recreate her recipe:
Make a pot of (regular, caffeinated) coffee. Pour the used coffee grounds into a bowl, squeeze in half a lemon, then add a tablespoon of olive oil. Mix it together with your hands to form a paste, then gently smooth it over your skin in circular motions. Let it sit on your skin till it dries into a mask, then rinse off with warm water.
