We have covered the benefits of using caffeinated products before, however its worth looking at the benefits of coffee scrubs specifically. In our opinion there are quite a few reasons to use coffee body scrubs:
Unlike non-natural exfoliating products, which attack more than dead skin, coffee scrubs, which are naturally quite rough, only scrub dead skin away, meaning you are doing less damage to your epidermis.
Additionally, unlike other natural exfoliants, coffee can be ground to smoother particles, and may hurt less, ideal for those with easily bruised or sensitive skin.
Caffeine, as you know, is naturally rich in antioxidants. Combined, the two work well to reduce cellulite displayed on your body. It doesn’t remove it, or reduce it, but temporarily abates it by dilating your blood vessels which in turns tautens skin tissue, making it appear toned.
Dilated vessels also help in blood circulation which in turn helps reduce water retention, which would help smooth the skin for short term. As such coffee based body scrubs are one of the best products to use to reduce short term appearance of cellulite.
One little advertised fact about coffee is that it attacks free radicals (caused by over oxidisation which in turn attacks your cells) which in turn helps the reduction of oxidation-related ailments such as eczema, acne, and even premature ageing. Used in a body scrub, coffee uses its ability to fight free radicals to try and counter the effects of skin issues. Ideally scrub as often as possible.
For those of you with sensitive diets and who don’t want to use products that go against your beliefs, coffee scrubs are a great alternative to the non natural or chemical based scrubs. So if you are vegan, opt for a coffee body scrub, however it is best if you check all the ingredients first to make sure that they are all vegan of course!
Most coffee scrubs have been touted as a head to toe option, though of course it depends on the coarseness of the grains. A lot of people use coffee scrubs for feet, hands, neck as well as the back.
Don’t you just love the smell of freshly brewed coffee? Now imagine smelling like the freshest ground grains after each shower? Use a coffee body scrub if you want your skin to absorb the scent of a fresh cup of Joe! If you would like to blend the smell (if pure coffee is too strong) then consider a coffee body scrub that is combined with other natural scents such as mint or vanilla.
All the benefits (reputed as well as proven) of Coffee Body Scrubs:
Generally these rules apply to most coffee based scrubs, but please read each products instructions individually.
One of the things to keep in mind when using coffee as a scrub, is to remember that it can stain. As a result, keep away from any and all clothes when carrying out your scrubbing routine. These scrubs (or coffee grinds) will not normally stain your bathroom, but just be careful regardless.
Try and not get into your mouth. Coffee is delicious in its intended liquid form, however as a scrub it will taste fairly disgusting, so try and not get it into your mouth (and eyes!!).
Use only in the shower or tub. Why? Well, unlike other body scrubs, coffee scrubs are messy, and loose granules – so they are apt to fly all over the place. If you keep your scrubbing confined to the shower or tub, you will reduce the amount of after clean up you have to carry out.
Use with a friend or a closer companion – why? Well you will need to vigorously use the scrub to get maximum benefit (expect some redness of skin) and nothing beats someone else doing your back as most parts of it are hard to reach!
Warning: avoid use on any cuts or delicate areas. Remember to not put salt in open cuts. Do not exfoliate if skin is sunburned or irritated for any reason. Be careful not to fall on wet or slippery areas caused by using the scrub. Avoid using on face.
