If you’re a coffee lover you might already know that a cup of joe has tons of healthy elements that nurture our internal body. Aside from that, did you know that you can re-use your coffee grounds and make it useful?
If you are looking for a natural remedy that could help you achieve glowing and healthy skin, look no further because the solution is your favorite coffee. Since coffee is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins, it is also great for nurturing our internal and external bodies.
Most of the time cellulite becomes visible when the production of fat cells increased. These are the uneven lines in your legs, buttocks, and abdomen that usually breaks self-confidence when wearing shorts and swimwear. Lucky for you, because your favorite coffee has come to save your skin from unwanted cellulite through its caffeine contents that are proven to reduce those annoying curvy lines.
How? You can either scrub the used and moist coffee grounds on your skin or buy skincare products that use coffee as one of its ingredients.
However, why would you still spend money on such products if you could just use coffee grounds? In that case, you could help yourself save money, and at the same time, you can also contribute to saving the earth.
Besides cellulite, another skin problem that ruins every girl's confidence is unwanted acne caused by harmful bacteria. But, don’t worry because coffee has properties that could kill bacteria on your skin. It contains chlorogenic acid (CGA) that works together with the exfoliation component of coffee to fight acne.
Reduce Dark Circles
Sometimes, we couldn’t help working and sleeping late at night, which causes dark circles under our eyes. Dark circles become visible when our blood doesn’t circulate well. But, coffee is proven to dilate blood vessels to let the blood flow well, which helps fight dark circles.
How? You can combine olive oil, half a teaspoon of coffee grounds, and a small amount of water to make the coffee grounds moist. Then, you can pat it underneath your eyes and leave it for about 5-10 minutes. Afterward, you can rinse it with water or wipe it with a cloth or tissue.
There are lots of other skin benefits that a person could get by applying coffee on their skin, but it is still important to consult a skin expert if you have severe skin problems.
