|“What's a rainy daywithout some deliciouscoffee-flavoured loneliness?” ― Sanober Khan,|
But did you know that it can also have real positive effects on our skin?
Here's what good coffee can do for your beauty!
#1 Fight those puffy eyes
if you apply coffee on the skin below your eyes this can significantly constrict the blood vessels hence reduce eye puffiness & swelling! Of course you can also use an actual skin creme containing caffeine for this.
Caffeine exfoliates your skin, in fact, coffee grounds make the perfect peeling for your skin as they effectively remove dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling baby smooth!
So instead of just throwing those old coffee grounds away, why not repurpose them?
#3 Tight & Bright
Coffee is known as a diuretic and hence can used efficiently in the treatment or prevention of cellulite - combine coffee grounds with coconut oil for the best results! The dark grinds of coffee can also be used to brighten up your skin & make it look more vital!
#4 Forever young!
Okay.. maybe not forever. But the antioxidants contained in coffee are real fighters against free radicals, which are known to cause premature skin ageing (e.g. wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity, etc.). You'll find many day- & night-cremes containing caffeine but I personally prefer to apply the raw coffee grounds to my skin & follow this peeling with some coconut oil. It works real wonders!
#5 So soothing
Coffee contains anti-inflammatory properties that can effectively reduce inflammation and redness on your skin. Using caffeine or products containing caffeine can significantly reduce the risk for - or even help you to prevent inflammation and redness.
|Coffee peelings are amazing!|
Who would have thought Coffee can actually be such a miracle-beauty weapon?!
I for my part, am fairly certain I will rely on Coffee as far more than just a mood-maker in the future. :)
