And so you’re a coffee lover?
Did you know that coffee packs some sort of punch not just as a beverage but as a beauty cure as well? It’s been touted as an excellent body scrub, moisturiser, wrinkle corrector, sunblock, and a salve for many other skin area problems!
These past several years, there have been hundreds of products first released in the market that contain caffeine to work to heal and reestablish complexion. Coffee is naturally full of antioxidants which can heal and even restore – no wonder it is now widely used in cosmetics. Indeed, it has been proven to be very versatile and is even identified by some of the world’s leading spas today – they’ve started out using coffee beans in their beauty and purifying treatments!
Without even shelling out so much, you can enjoy the benefits of coffee for your skin together with body. You can rub a few roasted beans in your side and let the woody and warm scent comfort you. Also you can try a cup of ground coffee beans (preferably Kona or maybe Javanese) mixed with some olive oil and use this as a human body scrub. This helps stimulate circulation and exfoliate the skin. Or maybe, you can make your own coffee and bath soap!
