This is How you Use “COFFEE for Skin Brightening” – Simple and Quick
Recently I have shared a recipe of How to make your own Coffee Oil at home, but less I talked about the benefits of it. This versatile ingredient can be used for many skin and hair benefits. As there are many skin benefits that I can share here, I thought of writing a separate blog post on the benefits of coffee and its uses for hair. So here, Lets talk about the popular benefit of Coffee for skin like how to use Coffee for Skin brightening.
Benefits of Coffee for Skin
Before I talk about some of the amazing benefits of Coffee for skin, Let me tell you the most important thing – i.e., choosing coffee. The coffee that you use as a beverage is no way useful for your skin. It little to no benefits. The instant coffee and store bought coffee powders have Chicory which gives coffee its rich color. This is of no use to your skin. The coffee that can be used for skin should be from high quality roasted coffee beans only and nothing else.
In India, Coffee is mostly grown in southern states. As I already mentioned in my previous post on How to make coffee infused oil, that I bought my coffee from chikmagalur in Karnataka. The coffee beans that i bought from here are the finest and fresh ones with rich aroma. I used only these coffee beans to make coffee infused oil and nothing else.
So, hunt for the best coffee beans for your skin and for your health too (if you drink) first before you go further.
Some of the benefits of Coffee for Skin are:
1. Cellulite reduction
2. Fades Stretch marks
3. Reduces Signs of Aging
4. Reduces Dark Circles
5. Imprves Face Rejuvenation
6. Avoids Hyper-pigmentation
7. As Skin tightening agent
Coffee for Skin Brightening
Coffee has rich source of anti-oxidants. These anti-oxidants signal tissue repair and also plays a crucial role in cell-regrowth. This leads to retained hydration (increased collagen) and increased skin elasticity.
Exfoliating your skin once in a while with coffee helps to remove the dead skin cells and tan from the upper most layer of the skin tissue. This in turn solves the un-even skin tone problems and helps to clear the skin quickly. And we all know, clear skin is always radiant and brighter.
How to use Coffee for Skin Brightening
You will need
1. Finely Grounded Coffee beans
2. Sweet Almond oil/ Jojoba oil
3. Vitamin E – 1 drop (Optional)
To use coffee as a scrub for skin, follow this simple procedure.
Take 1 teaspoon of finely grounded coffee beans into a bowl and mix it with 1 teaspoon of Almond oil/Jojoba Oil. Now you can add a drop of Vitaman E oil into this scrub and mix it well. Apply this mixture to your face and gently scrub your face in upward direction. This will remove dead skin cells and tan on face to reveal fresh and radiant skin.
