Coffee scrub - a magical treatment for the face and body

Coffee contains many beneficial substances for the skin.

coffee benefits for skin

The coffee contains

Caffeine - speeds up metabolism, relieves swelling, and promotes the elimination of toxins;

zinc - accelerates regeneration processes, eliminates skin irritation, helps fight stretch marks;

B vitamins - the so-called beauty vitamins. Strengthens the walls of blood vessels, prevents the formation of a red mesh on the surface of the skin, and acts as an antioxidant. 

Coffee contains most of the vitamin B3 (niacin), which relieves irritation, eliminates flaking of the skin, and regulates cell metabolism. 

This substance prevents moisture loss in the upper layers of the skin, evens out its color and improves its texture, and makes fine wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks less noticeable;

Vitamin A - has a regenerating effect, restores skin elasticity by stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastin, accelerates the regeneration of epithelial cells, smoothes fine wrinkles and stretch marks;

Vitamin E - improves skin and subcutaneous blood circulation, strengthens cell membranes, and increases skin resistance to free radicals. 

The substance helps smooth wrinkles, stretch marks, and tighten the skin.

Coffee scrubs are indispensable in the fight against cellulite: coffee accelerates the process of breaking down fats and removing toxins from cells. 

Coffee-based cosmetics have a tightening effect, smoothing the skin, relieving inflammation, and eliminating fine wrinkles and stretch marks.

Advantages of using a coffee scrub

Green coffee products are more effective, but sometimes they can cause allergic reactions. Anyone who has never used a homemade cosmetic coffee scrub should first apply the freshly prepared mixture to the inner surface of the forearm (when the elbow is bent), and after 15-20 minutes, wash it off.

In most cases, the skin turns red because coffee speeds up blood circulation. But if there is no sensitivity, then the redness will disappear in half an hour. 

Then you can apply the composition to the rest of the skin. If after half an hour the redness remains on the forearm, it is better not to use coffee scrubs.

Contraindications to the use of coffee scrub

Coffee scrub should not be used:

On open sores, wounds, inflamed areas with acne, abscesses, and boils. 

coffee extract, penetrating under the skin, can create the effect of tattooing, leaving many dark spots;

Immediately after chickenpox, when the skin at the site of the rash has not healed properly.

Does coffee scrub cause acne?

Coffee scrub does not cause pills. Coffee is a popular cosmetic ingredient. Many masks, scrubs, creams, lotions, and shampoos for hair growth are made from it. 

Caffeine dilates blood vessels, accelerates cell metabolism, improves blood microcirculation, and makes the skin smooth.

Just make sure your skin is sensitive to coffee.

Does the coffee scrub brown?

The coffee scrub does not tan the skin, but if you see a whitening effect from the coffee scrub, mix the scrub with lemon juice.

Coffee and honey for oily skin

Honey has a magical effect on the skin - it tightens the skin, and becomes smoother and more radiant.
