Coffee Skin Care

In addition to turning us into functioning humans every morning, coffee is also makes a fantastic scrub. But did you know the benefits of using coffee grains go beyond simple exfoliation?

Coffee grounds can kick-start an anti-inflammatory wave through your skin and help speed up the process of healing from superficial wounds.  It is rich in polyphenols, the same antioxidants found in berries and tea. The polyphenols and hydrocinnamic acids in coffee can fight free radicals and even help against the damage caused by ultraviolet rays.

How many of us have splurged on cream that promises to get rid of cellulite (and how many of us have been disappointed by those empty promises?! Bah!)? It turns out a topical application of coffee grains through a scrub such as SeaLuxe’s True Grit or Breakfast Scrub, which both contain coffee grounds, may be one of the best ways in the world of skin care to fight skin dimpling as the caffeine can tighten and break down the appearance fat cells.

The trick is, like anything else, it has to be used in your beauty routine regularly to see effect. But most of us shower daily with a bar of soap so just make sure that bar contains coffee!
