Coffee is a stimulating drink for many people across the world especially in the morning. I am never completely awake without a nice cup of hot steaming coffee. But did you know coffee also has several benefits for the skin.
It contains antioxidants, fatty acid and vitamins which are beneficial for the skin. It helps brighten up tired looking skin. The natural oil moisturises and nourishes your skin, while it helps reduce cellulite and restores the skins texture by reducing the appearance of stretch marks. Caffeine stimulates dilation and scrubbing motion increases blood circulation, which plumps up the skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Coffee is also a great exfoliator and is used in several face and body scrubs.
I recently tried the ultimate Coffee and Argan Oil Scrub from Simply Argan and I can see the difference in my skin. If your skin is flaky and dry this product is suitable for you. The natural ingredients like argan oil nourish the skin. Argan oil is also known as liquid gold and it works wonders for your skin. It helps maintain your body’s radiance.
The scrub also helps get rid of dead skin, brightens up the skin and leaves it smelling heavenly. It comes in a re-sealable pouch and once you open the pouch you are overwhelmed by the smell of coffee in a good way. When using the product, remove a small portion in a bowl and mix it with about 2 teaspoons of water to make a fine paste. One warning the product is a bit messy, as its a loose scrub my tip is to take a muslin cloth and wrap the scrub in the cloth and then use as a scrub.But on the plus side it will leave you and your bathroom smelling amazing.
The scrub can be used for your body as well as face. But if you have sensitive skin or oily skin then use only a pea sized amount for your face and scrub gently. After using the scrub for 2-3 times a week I feel that my skin looks healthier and softer. Also the smell lasts for a few hours which is a huge plus.
Overall this is a great body scrub which will leave your skin silky smooth, smelling great and reducing scars, marks and cellulite. Priced at £19 for a 200 gm pouch.
