Drinking coffee every morning is something we all do. Right? Now what if I told you that the same coffee can do wonders for our face, body and hair!

Yes you read it right!

Coffee can be extremely beneficial when it comes to beauty, below are 7 ways in which you can use Coffee as your beauty essential.

 

So, go ahead and explore, let me know which one of these will you try first?

 

1. Exfoliating Face Scrub

We all need to exfoliate, so why not choose one with natural properties to buff all those wrinkly lines and dry skin? A coffee scrub will help to eliminate dead skin while working with your body’s natural renewal process to produce new skin cells, which creates the glowing effect everyone wants. Go shine Girl!

You will need:

3 tbsp coffee grounds (new, if possible)
1 tbsp natural oil of your choice: olive, grape seed, coconut, or almond
1 tbsp brown sugar

Method:

Mix all dry ingredients, then add oil. Based on the kind of scrub consistency you want, add brown sugar quantity. Massage onto your face in gentle, circular motions, then rinse with warm water.

Make sure you massage very gently or you will end up bruising your skin.

 

 

2. Coffee Facial Mask

This one is my absolute favorite!

Adding coffee into a morning face mask will rejuvenate and keep your skin glowing all day long. It’s loaded with antioxidants, which help to eliminate toxins from your skin.

You will need:

  • 2 tbsp freshly ground coffee (or used grinds)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp whole milk, heavy cream, or yogurt
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Method:

Mix all ingredients together and apply a light coat to face. Let sit for about 15 minutes. Remove with a warm wash cloth.

 

 

 

3. For Glossy Hair

This amazing coffee hair treatment will renew your hair and bring it to a shiny, healthy state. Additionally, the disease-fighting antioxidants found in coffee can work for stronger hair follicles that help with hair growth.

You will need:

  • Coffee
  • Water

Method:

Prepare strong coffee, then add a bit of water. Let it cool until the mixture is lukewarm. Standing in the tub, pour the liquid onto your hair and scalp, then wrap hair with a plastic cap. Sit for 20 minutes. Wash out with warm water.

 

 

4. Scrub for the Entire Body

With only four natural ingredients, this full-body scrub will make your skin look healthier after the first use. The caffeine in coffee helps to eliminate unwanted oils, making your skin look flawless. The rough texture of the coffee grounds will slough away dead skin, leaving you with amazing, smooth skin.

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup ground coffee
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method:

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined. If your coconut oil is solid, gently heat it until it melts, but wait for it to go back to room temperature before adding the other ingredients. This is to make sure that your exfoliants don’t dissolve in the oil! Once mixed, store your scrub in an air-tight container. Use on your entire body for great exfoliation.

 

 

5. Body Scrub to remove Body Cellulite

It’s been tried and tested, and while it’s hard to completely eliminate cellulite, this body scrub works particularly well. The properties in coffee have been found to help diminish the look of cellulite, and the added benefit of coconut oil in the recipe will keep your skin moisturized and super-smooth.

You will need:

  • 1 cup coffee grounds
  • 1/2 cup white or brown sugar
  • 1 cup coconut oil

Method:

Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. After you’ve washed your body, massage the scrub onto wet skin for about 60 seconds per area, where you’re targeting cellulite, then rinse with warm water.

Useful tip: Use a tub stopper in your shower while using this scrub, as you’ll need to remove it from your shower and get rid of the waste in a regular garbage can as opposed to your shower drain, which can become clogged.

 

 

6. Take care of your Hands & Feet with this coffee scrub

Because this coffee scrub is a bit more on the abrasive side, use it on your hands and feet only. It’ll exfoliate all the dead skin, leaving your hands and feet smooth, soft and moisturized.

You will need:

  • 1-1/2 cups raw cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup dry coffee grounds
  • 1 tsp all-natural coffee extract
  • 1 tsp hazelnut extract
  • 1/2 cup sweet almond oil
  • 1 tsp chocolate extract (optional)

Method:

In a medium bowl, combine sugar and coffee grounds, and stir well. Add the coffee extract and the hazelnut extract to the bowl and continue stirring. Slowly pour the sweet almond oil into the bowl, stirring constantly; continue adding until you reach your desired consistency.

Scoop about 1 tsp of scrub into your hands, and gently rub in a circular motion on your hands or feet. Rinse off with warm water, and pat dry with a towel (this allows some oil to remain behind to condition the skin).

 

 

7. Mask for Hair Strengthening

As we learned earlier, the antioxidants found in coffee not only lead to stronger hair follicles that help with hair growth, but coffee also helps to soften your hair, add natural shine and help prevent hair loss. This recipe will do exactly that.

You will need:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp organic coffee powder

Method:

Mix the olive oil and coffee powder to make a mask, and apply to your hair and scalp thoroughly. Keep on your hair for 15-30 minutes, and rinse off with water. Repeat the process regularly if you’d like.
