If drinking is the only way you are using your coffee beans, you are seriously missing out on something amazing that coffee can do for your skin. So next time you wake up with a cup of coffee in your hand and want to have a beautiful glowing skin, you need to try a whole new use for your coffee beans.
Benefits of Coffee
Coffee can be called an antioxidant powerhouse; and everybody who is serous about skin care knows the role that antioxidants play in maintaining beautiful skin. These antioxidants need to be there inside and outside the body. Inside in the form of diet, and outside in the form of creams, scrubs and lotions applied to the skin. Having a cup of organic coffee in the morning makes sure that your body has received ample quantities of antioxidants which will get rid of puffy eyes and minimize the appearance of cellulite, to name a couple of benefits your skin is going to receive.
How does it Work?
Applying caffeine (which is of course amply found in coffee) in the form of creams or scrubs helps to reduce the inflammation that is the main reason for the skin’s ageing symptoms . Coffee scrubs, being naturally rough in nature, are also great for exfoliating the skin. Removing dead skin cells was never so easy with an organic method that you can rely upon for its organic qualities. The caffeine in your coffee scrub will directly enter the bloodstream, boost your circulation and stimulate the skin’s natural rejuvenation process; battling cellulite, scarring, wrinkles, inflammation to give you firmer and smoother skin.
Coffee Beans as a Home Remedy
Coffee is so easy to incorporate into your beauty regimen, due to its easy availability, and the results is can achieve in sync with other natural and organic products that are used along with it. Using coffee as an exfoliator and as a face mask is a breeze.
Coffee as an Exfoliating Agent
Add a bit of olive oil to coffee grounds and rub it on the skin to remove those dead cells. People looking for a smoother option can mix half cup ground coffee with half cup of brown sugar and a quarter cup of olive oil. Make it into a paste and then apply it on the face. Wait for 5-10 minutes, then massage the scrub into your skin using gentle circular motions. Once you are done, wash it off with warm water and apply a natural moisturiser.
Coffee as a Face Pack

After using this mask, your pores will look smaller and signs of ageing will be reduced.
