A kitchen is not only made up to provide your family with cooking ingredients to show off your culinary expertise but it is also a place where you could avail of beauty enhancers you need for beauty maintenance.

Blend all ingredients together and apply. Leave the mixture for about 15 minutes in your face before removing it with soap and water.

Coffee is also an effective facial scrub. Here’s how to make a facial scrub out of your coffee:
