We all know that coffee is a natural source of energy, perking us up in the morning, especially getting us through those Monday’s, and helping us get a daily dose of warm hugs in a mug. But what most people don’t know is that your coffee grounds are just as beneficial to your daily skin routine and should be implemented!
Here are 10 reasons why you should be using coffee in your daily routine:
Coffee is full of antioxidants
, which will help with premature aging. Faces and hands are the first places to show aging, so be sure to be using your Borika Body Coffee Scrub in those areas to get those anti-aging benefits targeted in those areas to keep you looking younger, longer!
2. Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Going right along with antioxidants, is coffee’s anti-inflammatory properties. Coffee can reduce your risk of cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases, as found by a group of researchers with the Iowa Women’s Health Study in 2006.
Ground coffee beans can help promote the body’s natural circulation of blood, which in turn helps promote the natural removal of waste and distribution of nutrients and oxygen.
4. Temporary Reduction of Cellulite
Come on, we all get it sometime in our life, (and if you don’t, I envy you!) on the back of our thighs, our stomachs, even our derrière! We are nearing bikini season folks, let’s us help you get that taken care of. Using a coffee scrub 2-3 times a week or more has been known to improve cellulite!
5. Reduces the Appearance of Stretch Marks
Again, bikini season is around the corner! Using your scrub often, and on these targeted areas can help your appearance of stretch marks reduce in color, and size.
6. Helps reduce eye puffiness
Just like when you need someone to wake up in the morning, coffee is your best friend when it comes to making you appear pulled together, and wide awake by reducing your eyes puffiness if you were up all night binge watching your favorite new…. I mean… researching for work.
7. Eczema Relief
Eczema can be an honest struggle! You’re dry, itchy and you have flaky patches of skin you don’t want people to see. So you keep putting on lotion all day to keep it moisturized. Using your Borika Body Coffee scrub can help to exfoliate your skin and keep it hydrated with the oils in our ingredients, which over time can help relieve your eczema!
Have you ever felt like your skin was just dry and flaky on your arms, chest, face, you name it? We can change that! By using your Borika Coffee Scrub for your body, face, and lips, you will slough off that dead, dry layer of skin that is begging to come off! You skin will look beautiful and radiant when you let your scrub work its magic for 5-10 minutes on your skin and you rinse off.
9. Smooth, Hydrated Skin
Borika Body Scrubs are more than just an exfoliating scrub, we are like a 2 in 1 product. After you apply in circular motions to slough off dry skin, leaving the scrub on your body for 5-10 minutes will absorb the oils in our scrubs through your pores, leaving you with healthy, smooth, hydrated skin the rest of the day!
10. The Smell!
Okay, last the best of all the game! Can we just talk about the scent?! The smell of coffee coming from my kitchen certainly gets me up in the morning, but using it in the shower wakes me up even more! With the added scents of coconut, mocha, cinnamon, or mandarin- you will want to eat the scrub while you’re at it. But don’t do that. Just put it on your lips to exfoliate instead- and drink some coffee after.
