5 Ways Coffee Can Be Used For Skincare

Who does not love coffee? Apart from being our favourite first-thing-in-the-morning kind of beverage, coffee has various other factors about it. Not many know that using coffee to benefit our skin is also a beauty ritual that has been practised since centuries now; here are five of the benefits of coffee.

Natural Exfoliator 

The ground grains of coffee are natural and mechanical exfoliators. When used and massaged on the skin as a scrub (you can add malai, honey or coconut/almond oil to it), these grains remove the dead skin and dirt particles, and help your skin breathe freely.

Under-Eye Skin Repair

The anti-inflammatory properties of coffee lessen the appearance of dark circles under eyes. The coffee also has properties of removing unnecessary water-content under skin, which helps in reducing puffiness of the skin (and the eyes as well).

Reduction Of Cellulites 

Coffee ground is one of the best scrubbing agent one can use to not only exfoliate one’s skin but also remove the appearance of cellulite. The scrubbing and massaging of coffee grounds on skin helps blood circulation. This plumps up your skin temporarily, and cellulite looks less obvious.

UV Ray Damage Repair and Tan-Removal

Studies have claimed that caffeine present in coffee helps protect from sun’s ultraviolet rays. Many sunscreens are infused with caffeine for the same reason. Caffeine is also known to remove tan. A scrub of coffee grounds mixed in honey will not only remove tan but also provide the skin with a natural moisturiser it needs.
