When you use coffee topically on your skin, like in scrubs, it can do wonders for making it look alive because of its killer exfoliating properties. So if you are crazy about coffee, here are a few reasons to rejoice over its benefits as an exfoliator!
A scrub to wake you up
Just like an espresso wakes you up, using coffee scrub will wake your skin up. Scrubbing coffee on the skin will make it look healthy and energized. The caffeine in coffee acts as a stimulant and enhances the circulation as you massage it over the skin. It works well to reduce puffiness and the scrubbing motions also reduce the swelling of tissues. A quick tip! Use this magic ingredient in a scrub blend and see the glow it adds to your skin.
Bring down the redness and inflammation
Delving deeper into the benefits of coffee for skin, you will be happy to know that it has got your back for acne and breakouts too. Coffee has anti-inflammatory properties, hydrocinnamic acid, and polyphenols, which work together to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. So, if you have skin that is oily and prone to acne, a natural scrub mix of coffee and sugar can be your best shot. Either, you can also use a coffee face scrub made from pure Arabica coffee and essential Vitamin E to perk up your skin.
Reduce cellulite, scars and marks
