Grounded Coffee

Grounded coffee has multiple benefits for your skin. Coffee not only acts as an exfoliator, but the caffeine in it helps reduce cellulite, inflammation and redness. The anti inflammatory properties of coffee also help reduce the puffiness under our eyes.

Now to fight acne scars using coffee, all you need is grounded coffee mixed with a table spoon of extra virgin olive oil or honey depending on your skin type.

Lemon juice has natural skin bleaching properties which is why it helps lighten the skin and most especially the stubborn acne marks.

Take one lemon and dilute it in a tablespoon of water – this is important because lemon on its own can sometimes be too strong. Dab a Q-Tip in this mixture and apply it just on the spots. You can repeat this process every night before going to bed and within a week there will be noticeable difference.


Honey is used not only to treat acne scars, but also acne itself. Honey is known to be very gentle on the skin and highly beneficial due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Honey can also be used as a moisturizer.
