Skincare and Coffee: The Best Combination
For many of us, coffee is an essential part of everyday life. It’s what powers us through the day, and it brings many much-needed health benefits. But did you know that coffee is not just good for a morning energy boost? It can even target skin health!
So, if you’re wondering about the benefits of adding a coffee-based product into your skincare routine, we're here to help! Let’s take a closer look.
Why is coffee so good for your skin?
It Can Be Used to Help Protect Against Cancer
The sun’s harsh UV rays can lead to life-threatening skin diseases like cancer. A 2015 study revealed that coffee is an excellent source of niacin-a vitamin that plays a role in cell signaling and DNA repair by inhibiting the DNA damage response of cells.
Coffee may help prevent non-melanoma skin cancer development and aggression, and may prevent other skin growths. As it exhibits protective effects against photodamage, it can also help soothe and heal sunburns.
It’s a Rich Source of Antioxidants
The environment we live in is full of free radicals that can wreak havoc on our skin. These free radicals can lead to skin damage and premature aging. Fortunately, the 100% organic Arabica coffee beans that we use in our scrubs are full of antioxidants that neutralize the effects of free radicals and boost our skin's natural defenses against pollution.
It Tackles Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles Like a Pro
The caffeine in coffee dilates your blood vessels, increasing blood flow. Improved blood flow reduces the swelling of tissues and de-puffs sensitive areas. The ice cube trick, with coffee infused in it, may help work wonders for eliminating your puffy eyes.
Plus, by dilating the blood vessels that contribute to dark circles, coffee reduces the look of those pesky dark spots, keeping your skin bright and fresh all day long!
It Reduces the Appearance of Aging, Redness, Rosacea & Eczema
Coffee has top-tier tissue repair properties, which means it can play a crucial role in regulating cell re-growth. These properties can lead to increased collagen production and skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and making your skin look firmer and younger!
What’s more? Coffee can even decrease the appearance of sun spots, redness, Rosacea and Eczema when applied topically. Thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties of coffee mixed with the calming effects of the all-natural oils we use, our products soothe irritation and even out skin tone. And The Coffee Scrub is 100% organic, making it perfect for sensitive skin!
It's An Amazing Natural Exfoliator
The Arabica coffee grounds found in our coffee scrub are natural and 100% organic, making them safe to use on all skin types, even sensitive skin. Coffee grounds are coarse, and their particles don’t easily dissolve in water, making them excellent exfoliators. You can easily scrub away dry, flaky skin to remove those dead skin cells from your pores, and enable your skin to absorb moisture more effectively. Plus, no more polluting mother nature with the harmful polyethylene beads found in other exfoliant scrubs!
It Reduces Cellulite
Fight cellulite! Coffee not only improves blood flow, but the act of exfoliating with our coffee scrub also releases toxins and breaks down fats held in your skin to reduce the look of cellulite.
It Can Treat Acne
Coffee contains chlorogenic acid (CGA), a compound with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. When this compound is added to an exfoliant, they make a powerful team–removing dirt, oil, bacteria and dead skin cells (AKA all the things that cause acne) while also soothing the skin. And The Coffee Scrub is made without harsh chemicals to avoid irritating your skin.
So, what's the verdict?
Coffee provides many benefits for the skin, which is why the skincare market is booming with products where coffee is the prime ingredient. And if you want all the benefits and none of the risks, stick with scrubs made with all-natural, organic coffee grounds and no chemicals added. So, what are you waiting for? Time to naturally exfoliate, invigorate, and hydrate that skin, babe!
"Obsessed is an understatement!
Holy cheese and crackers, this stuff is amazing. I have eczema really bad especially on my hands and it makes them extremely dry and they peel often. I have not felt my hands ever be so smooth in my life. I am ordering more as we speak. I have legit tried everything for my hands and this is the only product to give me relief. So thank you!"
