We’ve been drinking coffee for eons, waking up at the first signs of dawn and brewing a hot, aromatic cup of coffee to stimulate the senses, alert the mind, and make the tasks for the day somewhat doable with a good shot of caffeine energy. But did you know that coffee is more than just for drinking? Not only is it great for the mind, but also contains a number of beauty benefits too!
Coffee is loaded with antioxidants that are instrumental in prevent premature skin ageing. JMT has trawled through mountainous research and found 3 key beauty benefits just for you:
- It’s a great exfoliator
Ground coffee beans provide the perfect texture for exfoliation. It aims to eradicate dirt and sweat that may be clogged deep within your pores. In addition coffee scrubs can help prevent or eradicate small varicose veins because the caffeine in the scrub acts as a vascular restrictor, something which shrinks blood vessels, thus helping to reduce varicose veins.
- It minimises the appearance of cellulite
A coffee body scrub is really beneficial because it can help lower the formation cellulite through redistribution of adipose (fat) cells when caffeine comes into contact with your skin.
Remember to massage carefully, as this will help to increase circulation and improve blood flow, thereby increasing the breakdown of adipose cells and removal of toxins. The grounds work to improve the circulation as the caffeine draws the fluids out from between the cells and helps to decrease the appearance of inflammation and swelling.
- It leaves your skin feeling smooth
That’s right! Not only will your skin be feeling luxuriously smooth, but the hearty aroma of coffee sure isn’t bad either!
