Benefits of Coffee for the skin:
For most of us, when we’re tired or need a morning boost, there’s a simple solution: Coffee. Caffeine helps give your brains the pick-me-ups you so often need, helping you to feel alert and refreshed. And, it can do the same thing for your skin — just not by drinking it. Rather, when you apply it topically and let your skin absorb it, coffee can do wonders for making you look alert and refreshed.
- Natural exfoliant
It makes sense: Coffee’s texture isn’t unlike the typical beauty scrubs you buy for your body and face. But coffee isn’t just on par with other scrubs — it’s more powerful. The grind is coarser than most gel or sugar scrub exfoliants, meaning it will buff away dry and flakey skin as soon as you’re in the shower. And, in the case of skincare-specific coffee products, like our Organa Coffee Scrub, the oils will work their magic, replacing any lost moisture and keeping your skin super soft for days to come.
- Stimulates blood flow
Though applying coffee to your body won’t make your mind more alert, the caffeine does affect your skin. When a coffee scrub is applied in a circular massaging fashion the caffeine and motion together stimulate blood flow, which can help diminish things like cellulite, stretch marks, and acne. Just like hot water is a necessary ingredient to turn your ground beans into drinkable coffee, it’s also the key ingredient in getting the caffeine into your skin to work its magic. When you grt in the hot shower, the steam opens your pores, allowing the caffeine to be absorbed through your hair follicles.
- Targets free radicals
Free radicals are molecules that, when damaged, whether through stress, diet, smoking, or other products, can result in visible skin imperfections like dark spots and lines. Which is where coffee comes in: It’s packed with antioxidants, which target those free radicals and help reverse the imperfections, brightening your skin and giving you a refreshed glow.
- Perfectly balanced pH
While it can be difficult to find the perfect product that won’t overcompensate and leave your dry skin too oily, or your oily skin too dry, coffee pretty much eliminates that problem. Coffee has the same PH as your skin, so it won’t leave you feeling dry or oily.
