Coffee beans are nature's fixer-upper. While we all know the benefits that caffeine has on the mind and body when we drink a cup of coffee, the lesser known benefits are the effects it has when we apply it to our skin. These benefits are why we chose to use it in our famous coffee sugar scrub. Coffee helps to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize the skin making it an excellent face mask. Using our coffee sugar scrub as a face mask is one of many uses we recommend.
Caffeine is the main compound that is found abundantly in tea and coffee plants around the world. It helps tighten the skin, which can help reduce cellulite. When applied under and around the eyes, it can minimize the appearance of puffy eyes because caffeine restricts blood vessels, which reduces swelling and inflammation. It can also help treat non-hereditary dark circles under the eyes. Caffeine is also loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines. Try the effects for yourself with a jar of our Coffee Sugar Scrub.
