Coffee Can Help Treat Acne
Nobody likes a breakout, but unfortunately it’s part of life that many of us battle. If you struggle with acne or bacne, coffee could be a great solution. The regular use of coffee in skincare products helps combat problems caused by harmful bacteria as it contains both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Combined with the natural exfoliation of coffee grounds, all these benefits can collectively fight off acne. How amazing is that?
Say Goodbye To Cellulite
Coffee is a brilliant way to tighten up your skin. It’s a diuretic, meaning it helps promote the release of water from the body and when used in skincare, the caffeine can dehydrate fat cells, making them smaller and ultimately reducing the appearance of cellulite. Hello bikini body.
Flow Baby Flow
It’s all about the blood flow. Coffee promotes blood circulation. This gives us healthier, more energised skin. Caffeine encourages blood flow which can reduce the swelling of tissues and de-puff areas of the skin. Just like a cup of coffee energises you in the morning, so goes the same with the reaction on your skin.

Because of its qualities that signal tissue repair, coffee plays a crucial role in regulating cell re-growth, leading to increased collagen and increased skin elasticity.

Last but not least, coffee body scrub is simply a brilliant exfoliator. The fine crystals help remove dull, dead skin cells. Revealing the fresh younger cells hiding underneath. Removing these dead skin cells is a crucial part of having healthy and happy skin that doesn’t get clogged up.
