I have used it I works wonders for my skin … if your having skin issues or want to get rid of stretch marks this is the product for you. Here are some of the benefits of coffee towards your skin…
- Skin Softening
Easier and cheaper than a salon facial treatment is a coffee-cocoa face pack, which can quickly be made even in the comforts of your home. Simply mix two spoons each of cocoa powder and ground coffee, then add to three spoons of milk and a spoonful of honey. If your skin is oily, you may want to use yogurt instead of milk. This mixture can then be applied directly on your face. After about 30 minutes or so, you can wash off the face pack with clean water. The benefits of this face pack include softer, healthier, and hydrated skin. It can also tighten your pores.
2. Cellulite Reduction
Another one of the great benefits of coffee on skin is reducing cellulite. This is so because the caffeine in coffee dehydrates your fatty cells, causing the cellulite to appear diminished and making your skin look much smoother. In fact, studies have shown that skin creams which listed caffeine as an ingredient are up to 17% more effective when it comes to cellulite reduction. To make your own body scrub, just mix together coffee, pure aloe vera gel, and vitamin E oil in a 2:1:1 ratio, then apply the mixture and massage onto your skin. Make sure that the coffee you use is finely ground to achieve the best results.
You know how coffee wakes you up in the morning? It does the same thing for your skin. When applied as a face mask, the stimulating properties of coffee improve blood flow and making your skin appear radiant, bright, and, well, alive.
In a bowl, soak coffee grounds in warm, filtered water (coffee grounds will sink to the bottom of the bowl), and add epsom salts. Rinse your face with the water from the bowl, then scoop up the grounds to gently scrub skin. Finish by rinsing with more of the water from the bowl.
4. Boosts hair color
“Coffee grounds mixed with water into a paste and applied to damp, freshly shampooed hair will add some depth to your color,” says Doug Macintosh, hair colorist at Louise O’Connor Salon in New York City. “The acidity of the coffee will also smooth the cuticle of the hair, giving it extra shine.”
5. Soothes Inflammation
Caffeine possesses anti-inflammatory properties that make it effective in reducing inflammation and redness in your skin. It is often used as an ingredient in anti-inflammatory creams to enhance their effectiveness. Using caffeine in skincare products can reduce and prevent inflammation and redness and give you beautiful, even skin tone.
6. Depuff eyes and removes dark under eye circles
coffee is its ability to reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark under-eye circles. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, caffeine can minimize the accumulation of blood under your eyes, therefore preventing dark circles.
