Yep, that’s right! Not only can coffee give you a boost of energy or provide essential nutrients to your plants, but it can also benefit your skin when applied topically. So today, we’re sharing why and how to incorporate coffee into your skincare routine. To learn the benefits of this beverage and how our organic coffee scrub can help you achieve bright and brew-tiful skin, keep reading!
Benefits of Coffee for Skin
Whether in bean, ground, extract, or liquid form, coffee has an abundance of beauty benefits. So, pour yourself a cold or hot brew and get ready to learn what coffee on skin can do for you!
Next time you’re ready to toss your coffee grounds into the trash, try incorporating them into your self-care routine instead. Coffee, in raw, ground form removes dead skin cells, reduces the appearance of excess fat cells (aka cellulite), and rejuvenates circulation, leaving behind shiny and supple skin. This is best achieved via a scrub, as the tiny granules provide the most effective exfoliation.
Nourishes + Soothes + Calms
Fun fact: Coffee is loaded with powerful antioxidants, which help prevent premature aging and combat damaging free radicals. Simply put, coffee is a beauty confidant you want on your side when trying to protect, plump, and perfect skin. Another benefit of coffee is that it helps soothe and calm inflamed and irritated skin. The flavonoids in coffee, which have antioxidant effects, not only help treat redness but also prevent sunburn and photo-aging. It also works wonders on chapped skin, which is perfect for reviving dry lips!
Brightens + Tightens
Just like the welcoming scent of a freshly brewed pot of coffee wakes your senses and instantly improves your mood, it does the same when applied to your skin due to coffee’s stimulating properties. These properties work to increase blood flow, helping skin to appear radiant and revived. Serums, creams, and scrubs that contain coffee also help to dehydrate fat cells, causing them to shrink. When this is achieved, tighter and toned skin is the result!
Reduces Under-Eye Bags + Dark Circles
Okay, don’t go pour piping hot coffee around your eyes in the hopes of appearing more youthful… Instead, apply a caffeinated eye cream, which helps restrict blood flow and reduce swelling. With antioxidants and vitamins such as vitamin E, creams and serums containing coffee hydrate and tighten the delicate skin under eyes. And because the area under our eyes is a lymphatic channel that doesn’t drain properly, coffee works to dilate blood vessels and remove the water that can contribute to dark circles. So, say goodbye to puffy eyes that are dark and glooming and ones that are bright and glowing.
