Many individuals, including my mom, cannot let a day go by without drinking a cup of coffee. They need the caffeine in their systems every single day. But, it is said that excess consumption of it may have adverse effects on our health. While drinking too much coffee with caffeine can cause plenty of disorders in our body, application of the same has its own advantages.
Here are some of the benefits of applying coffee on your skin:
Even though inhaling the aroma of coffee does not reduce your stress, it does help relax your senses and lift your mood. It has a temporary calming effect on the brain when applied on the skin. The fragrance may also help enhance your working memory and stimulate alertness.
Applying a good coffee scrub on your skin helps remove the dead skin cells thereby reducing your freckles, fine lines and wrinkles. The anti-oxidant properties, of caffeine, help generate new skin cells. If you want to get rid of the dead skin cells and impurities from your feet, use a coffee foot scrub once a week. Your heels will surely love you for the soft, smooth and fresh feeling after the routine.
According to some researchers, caffeine was found to increase the growth of hair. A paste of coffee powder, honey and olive oil, when applied on the scalp, helps boost hair growth naturally. With some, coffee has also helped in reducing hair-fall.
The anti-oxidant in coffee helps exfoliate and rejuvenate dull skin. mCaffeine coffee body wash deeply cleanses the pores and hydrates your skin leaving you feeling fresh and energized with radiant skin. The interesting thing about the above-mentioned product is that it comes in a coffee-infused coffee cup. The packaging is biodegradable as it is made from real coffee grounds. These products are free from sulphates and harsh chemicals. They are FDA-approved and dermatologically tested.
The application of strongly brewed coffee under your eyes gets rid of dark circles and puffiness. It hydrates the area under the eyes and helps reduce fine lines, too. You could apply it once in the morning and once before you go to bed. Sometimes, pigmentation can be genetic but using coffee to reduce it is worth a try!
Though I may not be a coffee drinker, I am totally a coffee user. In my stash, I have a coffee body wash, face wash, face scrub, face moisturizer, body scrub, body butter and foot scrub. I have come to enjoy the cooling coffee fragrance very much and bask in it for hours. Thanks to it, my skin is soft and my heels are smooth. What else does a woman want, right? 😉
