There are good reasons to drink coffee and there are a few reasons not to. Today, on Beautiful Tuesday, this post is for those who would like to find out beauty benefits from their beloved coffee. Well a typical serving of coffee contains more antioxidants than typical servings of grape juice, blue berries, raspberries and oranges.
‘Coffee Therepy’, which we are going to talk about, involves using brewed coffee to enhance the texture, health and appearance of skin and hair. Coffee tightens pores and removes dead skin cells, making the skin look younger.
Coffee has everything to do with taste and stimulating effect of the caffeine but what is the link with beauty? Our skin needs a proper scrub as gentle exfoliator, mask to tighten the skin, moisturiser to hydrate and an overall brighter healthier skin. This all can be achieved with ground coffee. So let’s try this scrub and mask….
1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp honey
Make a paste and apply it on your face. Wait for sometime and massage the scrub on your face with gentle circular motions. Wash off with water. It is one of the best exfoliators.
COFFEE FACE MASK
2 tsp coffee
2 tsp honey
2 tsp yoghurt
Mix all and apply on face. Wait for 20 minutes and wash with plain water.
COFFEE ICE CUBES
Pour the freshly brewed coffee into the ice cube tray, place it in the freezer until solid. Take one cube and gently use on the face. It reduces puffiness and increase blood circulation to the face resulting in healthier skin.
It is said that for drinking coffee, the key is moderation, which is typically 2-3 cups a day. But for beauty benefits the key is according to the need of the skin, you can use the mask , scrub and ice cubes as and when required.
With age and other factors your skin is suddenly like, oh, what to do. Hit pause on the panic button and try coffee therepy.
And of course let me know by your comments, how it is working on you.
