The fight against acne is one that we’ve all experienced, and one we know all too well. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, or how many followers you have on Instagram — acne knows no bounds.
To make matters worse, there are literally hundreds (probably even thousands) of “acne treatments” on the market. Add that to the dozens of home remedies floating around the internet, and you’re in for a night of overwhelming research.
We’re not here to write another useless article, so let’s get straight to the point and break down the breakouts. After all — the more you understand ‘em, the more prepared you’ll be to fight ‘em.
Acne. Bacne. Chestne (okay, we made that one up). But really, WHY?
In short, acne (whiteheads, blackheads and pimples) occurs when a buildup of oils and dead skin cells block your pores and hair follicles. Your face, chest and back are the areas that have the most follicles, hence the concentration of acne in those areas.
Okay. So how does coffee scrub help?
Being the natural exfoliant that it is, coffee scrub is great for ridding your body of dead skin cells, dirt, grime or any extra oils that build up over time (AKA all the things that block your follicles and cause acne). What makes coffee scrub the true winner is that it’s great for your entire body, so say bye to acne, bacne AND chestne!
How to get the most out of your scrub.
Coffee scrub works best when applied to a clean face, so start by rinsing off all the excess dirt and oil; this will allow the scrub to get deep into your pores and really do its job. Once you’re done rinsing, gently apply a small amount of the scrub and begin scrubbing in circular motions. If you have sensitive skin, be extra gentle. Leave the scrub on for a few minutes and then wash off. Repeat this process a few times a week.
Following up your scrubbing session with a moisturizing, all-natural oil mixture is essential. One of our favorites (and a proven fighter of acne) is jojoba oil mixed with aloe vera gel or coconut oil. Look good, feel good, smell good.
