Most of us can attest to the miraculous effects of a warm cup of coffee: it perks us up, is chock-full of antioxidants and tastes like the nectar of the gods! But you don’t have to drink the stuff to reap its rewards: by applying a coffee scrub topically, you can crack into the magic hidden within coffee beans.
Our coffee scrub products are a wonder when it comes to getting rid of acne, and here’s why:
Responsible for your java-buzz, caffeine also helps clear acne by stimulating blood flow in your body. This brings fresh blood to your face (or chest, back, hips – anywhere!), reducing inflammation and brightening your complexion.
Coffee is rich in antioxidants which fight skin-damaging free radicals.
Coffee is the star of the show in our coffee scrubs, but other ingredients carry their weight too. Moisturising cocoa butter, organic Himalayan pink rock salt, calming rosehip oil, antibacterial coconut oil – the squad of ingredients in our body scrubs work with caffeine to kick your acne to the curb.
Ground coffee beans are abrasive, which makes for an incredibly deep exfoliation. The abrasive nature scrubs away dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil, cleansing your skin of these acne-causing impurities.
Other Magical Properties
The tannins in coffee make it astringent, which means that it causes the skin cells to contract. This reduces swelling and redness – acne’s famous and frustrating friends.
Plumps your skin
By drawing moisture from your skin, coffee creates smoother, brighter, firmer skin. Its ability to plump out wrinkles makes coffee naturally age-defying.
Coffee is naturally antibacterial, which means that it fights bacteria – a major cause of acne.
That Caffeinated Glow
Our coffee scrub range, made from fair trade organic coffee, will cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise your skin giving you that beautiful caffeinated glow.
