Particularly if you’re on a budget, and don’t have the cash to spend on fancy skincare products, this homemade mask is worth a shot.

Beauty fan and skincare whizz Maya May took to social media to share the recipe for her homemade coffee face mask – leaving many open-mouthed.

To create the skincare product, Maya started out by adding two teaspoons of instant coffee to a bowl.

To this, she then mixed in one teaspoon of organic honey and one teaspoon of warm water.

She then added a pinch of turmeric and mixed the ingredients together until it created a paste.

Once the correct consistency, Maya let the mask sit for a few minutes to thicken.

Then, once the mixture had thickened, Maya used a spoon to apply the mask to her face.

She advised that you must “apply the mask evenly all over your face.”

The beauty fan then added: “Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes and remove your mask with warm water.”

Maya later explained: “I would always start with clean skin before applying any face mask.

“The coffee face mask is for dry and dull skin.

“It’s supposed to be a little sticky because you add the honey. Honey is really good at hydrating your skin.

“You can wash your face with warm water or use cleaning pads to remove the mask.”

The TikTok clip, which was posted under the username @minimallymay_, has clearly left many open-mouthed, as it has quickly gone viral and has since amassed 2.1 million views. 

Social media users were impressed with the DIY mask and many admitted that they too had tried it out. 

One person said: “My skin feels so amazing.” 

Another added: “This cleared my skin in two days.”

A third commented: “Thanks, my skin feels amazing.”

Meanwhile, someone else asked: “Does it work on greasy and sensitive skin??”

To this, Maya replied: “I would recommend doing a patch test. I have acne prone sensitive skin and haven’t had any issues.” 

At the same time, another user questioned: “Does this stain if you have fair skin?”

In response, the skincare whizz explained: “It doesn’t stain my skin but you can always do a patch test to see how your skin reacts. If it stains your skin, you can use milk on a cotton ball or micellar water.” 

Not only this, but someone else wondered: “Do I use it everyday?”

To which Maya then shared: “I prefer only using the coffee face mask when my skin is dry and dull.” 

Whilst another beauty fan asked: “Can I keep the leftovers in the fridge for later use?”

To this, Maya explained: “The honey in the mask will harden it so I wouldn’t recommend storing it.” 

As well as this, another user questioned: “How long will it take to give the results?”

Maya then explained: “I have been using the coffee face mask for a few years. I would say taking care of your health combined with a good skincare will give you results.”
