Your Guide to the Benefits of Coffee for Skin
Most of us rely on coffee for a morning wake up call or mid-afternoon pick-me-up, but did you know that it can actually be just as stimulating for our skin as it is for our minds? From eye creams to body scrubs, coffee makes an amazingly awakening ingredient in natural skin care.
We all know how stimulating a fresh cup of coffee is, with so many of us relying on it to get through the morning and sustain our energy levels throughout a big day. But coffee is actually amazing in natural skin care too, with extracts and ground beans making wonderfully refreshing ingredients in everything from eye creams to body scrubs. In the same way caffeine can wake your body up, it can actually help to wake your skin up too!
Uses of coffee in natural skin care
One of the best things about coffee is that it has anti-inflammatory properties, so it makes it a wonderful ingredient in eye creams as it reduces that puffiness so many of us are left with after a poor night's sleep. Thanks to its awakening caffeine content, it can also stimulate circulation to deliver a tightening and brightening effect to the skin, plus the ground beans can be used in scrubs to help buff away dead and dry skin and reduce the visible signs of cellulite and even stretch marks. While I love using coffee in my skin care, I've been trying to cut it out of my daily diet to replace it with other alternatives.

Another great shot of coffee for the eyes is the Salt & Glow Awaken Coffee Bean Eye Serum. This eye serum works to boost hydration around the eyes and treat fine lines and bags thanks to antioxidant and vitamin rich Green Coffee Beans, Siberian Ginseng, Kakadu Plum, Pomegranate Seeds and Sea Buckthorn Oil, and comes in an easy-to-use roller ball which is perfect for stimulating circulation, cooling the under eye area and helping to smooth out puffiness through light massage.

Hurraw! Organic Lip Balm - Coffee Bean
Coffee is actually great for lips, too! I love the Hurraw!

This Vegan lip balm is perfect for coffee lovers.

Ethique Mochaccino Body Polish
For a gentle polish on dry arms and legs, I love the Ethique Mochaccino Body Polish, a solid body bar which combines ground Coffee Beans with Pumice and chocolatey Cocoa Butter to help unclog pores, buff away dead cells and brighten the skin to leave it soft, smooth and glowing. This stimulating solid scrub is ideal for all skin types and makes a great exfoliating treatment in preparation for fake tanning.

The Buddy Scrub Luxe Body Scrub in Mocha Mint has to be one of the most beautiful smelling scrubs I have ever come across.
