Most of us enjoy drinking a hot, cup of coffee to wake up, or give us the caffeine buzz we need to get the rest of our day. At Kirra, coffee is not only one of our essential daily beverages but is also one of our favourite body exfoliators because of its various uses and benefits for the skin.
Let’s look at the advantages of coffee as a natural exfoliator and the best ways to use it!
Using Coffee Exfoliation as your Body Scrub
Coffee as an all over body scrub is the ultimate treat for your skin. Coffee exfoliation not only polishes away dull skin, but it can also make your skin brighter and give it a more smooth and radiant appearance. The caffeine within the coffee scrub can also have a temporary tightening effect on the skin and can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, scars, and uneven skin tone.
We recommend our Chocolate Iced Coffee Body Scrub:
- Slather on this sweet treat of coffee and chocolate to deeply nourish and exfoliate your skin. A glorious blend of Coconut, Almond and Jojoba oils will go to work restoring hydration while Cacao Powder can protect against free radical damage and firm the skin.
Using Coffee on your Face
As we know, coffee is loaded with the stimulant caffeine and other antioxidants which helps boost circulation and naturally tightens the skin. Coffee Exfoliation on your face can reduce redness, inflammation and swelling; so, say goodbye to puffy eyes and dark circles! Plus, with coffee being packed with antioxidants, this can also assist with combating the signs of premature ageing such as fine lines. Always remember to be gentle around your eye area as the skin is very delicate!
Using Coffee in your Hair
Coffee can be used as scalp scrub to stimulate hair growth! Coffee Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells, dirt and product build up on the scalp. By massaging in the coffee scrub, it allows the caffeine and antioxidants to penetrate the scalp, encouraging new hair growth. Plus, the coffee will give your hair a natural, glossy shine!
