Coffee – The Wake-Me-Up Elixir for Skin and Hair!
In the Pacific Northwest, we’re a little fanatical about our coffee. We drink it morning, noon, and night. It’s pretty hard to go more than a few blocks without running into a coffee shop. After all, this is the home of Starbucks! Coffee helps bring us to life on rainy mornings, but it’s so much more! This delicious wake-me-up elixir does amazing things for skin and hair, too.
Coffee for Skin
Coffee has delicious properties and as good as it tastes in your cup, it’s even better on your skin. Here are just a few ways to enjoy the benefits of coffee for your skin:
- Coffee scrubs do wonders for exfoliating! The caffeine and grounds work together to help smooth those thighs and any other trouble areas while the aroma of coffee grounds uplifts your senses.
- Coffee grounds placed gently under your eyes help to improve the appearance of puffy eyes and dark circles.
- Coffee oil helps give skin an even, toned, smooth appearance and feel. Coffee oil also offers an impressive amount of nourishing antioxidants, essential fatty acids and phytosterols that help provide excellent hydrating and moisturizing abilities, making it a great choice for formulas targeting mature skin care needs. Though it has a viscous consistency, it absorbs quickly and easily, providing the feeling of soft, supple, deeply conditioned skin and hair, and of course, it leaves behind that wonderful aroma!
Coffee for Hair
Coffee, of course, has caffeine which is why it’s so effective at giving us energy. Coffee Hair & Body Wash can do the same for your hair! Coffee can add shine and manageability to hair. This is great news! Coffee works exceptionally well for those of us with dark hair, but even if you have light hair, adding caffeine to your wash can stimulate and “wake up” your scalp.
