Some common ingredients hiding in our kitchen can be a great addition to your skincare regime, including our favorite, coffee! Recently, coffee has become a trending ingredient in many skin care formulas, including eye cream, face masks, body scrub, and more. But what is it about coffee that drives results? Caffeine. The good news is, if you don't have a tolerance for caffeine or don't want to include it, decaffeinated coffee can be used as an exfoliant. Below we explore some of the benefits of using coffee topically, including the key benefits of our Hand-Made Organic Body Scrub.
-Exfoliates skin to remove dead skin cells and reveal smooth, supple skin
-Increases circulation by encouraging blood flow which is derived from exfoliation as well as caffeine content
-Temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite and evens the skin tone
-In creams or masks, the caffeine content can help brighten the skin, reduce inflammation, and alleviate dark circles' appearance via increased blood flow and circulation
We handpicked the best ingredients within our scrub to complement our coffee grinds, including Himalayan sea salt, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and geranium essential oil. Each one of these ingredients, derived from nature, have their unique benefits. For example, coconut oil and jojoba oil help moisturize the skin while geranium fills our nose with a beautiful aroma and stabilizes hormones. With the combination of healthy ingredients that produce multiple benefits, our scrub is a distinct addition to any skincare regime.
