Sometimes selecting a gift for Mom can be more like an exercise in frustration, so perhaps it’s time to bring things back home.

Offering her an in-house beauty treatment is a great way to show Mom that you care while also winning points for being frugal and creative.

Our anti-aging, de-puffing Mother’s Day Face Mask reduces swelling and puffiness by using coffee grounds to soothe the skin. Furthermore, cocoa reduces aging while greek yogurt replenishes lost moisture.

Try it on yourself first to work out any kinks before heading to Mom’s house for a Mother’s Day she’ll never forget.

Here’s the recipe:

You will need:

2 tablespoons freshly ground coffee

2 tablespoons pure cocoa powder

1 tablespoon honey

3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt


Blend all of the ingredients together, spread evenly over skin, and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes. When you rinse it off, massage your face gently to exfoliate. If there’s any mask left over after you wash your face with it, add a bit of water to it and use it as a scrub for the backs of your arms and any other body part that could do with some smoothing.
