Coffee is so good for your skin! From moisturizing properties to exfoliation effects, coffee does wonders for your skin – and what’s better than using food as beauty products?

How to Use a Body Scrub

There are many different ways to use body scrubs depending on what it is and how your skin reacts, but the most important step in any scrub – even if you’re not using one with coffee grounds – is exfoliation.

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin, and coffee grounds are great for this. You can also use a scrub to massage away any tension or knots in muscles – it will help loosen them up!

You can apply after taking your bath. It works best on clean damp skin. However, you choose to apply it, make sure that when done exfoliating, rinse well and moisturize – don’t want any dryness after all.

How Often Should You Do This?

It really depends on how much time you have and how often your skin needs it. If you want to keep things simple, try exfoliating twice a week – make sure that if the scrub has hard ingredients like sugar or salt, then be gentle when rubbing in circular motions over damp skin.

How to Preserve Body Scrub

Store it in a clean jar or container with an airtight lid and keep it at room temperature to preserve your body scrub. If you’re unsure of the shelf life, use it within three months!

Other Ways To Use Coffee On The Skin

Apply coffee to scars, sores or skin irritations and cover with a bandage. You can also soak the area in cold coffee before applying an ice pack for quicker healing.

Mix two tablespoons of your favourite scrub into a glass jar filled with water as a refreshing face mask! This is especially helpful when you’re travelling and don’t have access to your usual skincare products.

If you struggle with dry skin, try mixing one tablespoon of ground coffee into a cupful of moisturizer and rubbing it all over your body after showering.

Use as a shaving cream! Use coffee in place of your normal soap, and rub all over wet legs or underarms for an easy shave that won’t leave you irritated because it smells amazing and makes your skin soft afterwards.

Coffee For Hair Growth

Coffee can be used as a hair growth treatment and even for your eyebrows! It has been shown to improve blood circulation in follicles that are not producing hair.

This increase of oxygenated blood ultimately stimulates hair production because it helps the cells function properly. It may also help stimulate eyebrow growth by promoting collagen production.
