How to Unlock Youthful Skin Using a Body Scrub With Coffee Grounds
It’s what motivates you to wake up in the morning.
To continue your work in the afternoon.
And dare I say, it's what encourages you to fall asleep in the evening, dreaming of that piping hot brew awaiting you in the morning.
But ladies, have you ever used a coffee body scrub as a skin product?
Not only does a coffee body scrub smell like heaven— but it will also:
- Help prevent and delay signs of early aging in the skin.
- Reduce the appearance of lumpy or uneven skin — also known as cellulite.
We can already hear you thinking…
“My daily coffee fix can actually improve my skin?”
Girl, yes. Well, sort of.
When you apply a coffee body scrub to the skin, the effects are a little different from drinking coffee.
Actually, when coffee is applied to the skin, its antioxidants and other properties are absorbed directly into the skin.
And interestingly enough, when coffee is applied topically, it creates a calming effect within the body as opposed to orally consuming coffee and experiencing a stimulating effect.
But we do not suggest creating a homemade DIY coffee scrub recipe.
Alternatively, we highly encourage the use of a professional coffee body scrub such as The Coffee Scrub.
This is because a homemade DIY coffee scrub recipe might not contain high-quality ingredients.
And you won't experience the full range of benefits with low-qualityingredients.
Plus, a homemade recipe can scratch your skin while The Coffee Scrub is safe for your skin and leaves you with smooth, firm, and youthful skin.
So, are you ready to dive into the world of anti-aging coffee scrubs?
Ground Coffee Beans Provide a Powerful Anti-Aging Beauty Product
Due to certain properties, coffee grounds are a powerful agent in delaying agingwhen applied topically.
These age-defying properties are called polyphenols and hydroxycinnamic acid.
So, let’s take a closer look at these properties and discuss what makes them encourage youthful skin.
The Polyphenols in Coffee Make it a Mild Sunscreen
So, what is a polyphenol and how does it act as a sunscreen for your skin?
Well, the majority of polyphenols are considered pigments and come from the caffeine within coffee.
Most importantly, they are able to absorb UV rays, which means polyphenols aid your body and skin by detoxing free radicals and preventing UV ray damage.
