How can coffee benefit your body? // Fresh One Body //
19 October, 2015
Fresh One Coffee are the ultimate in “waste not want not”, which for me is the perfect blend of greatness when using a product such as coffee, not only do they specialise in beans and your daily grind, they are also reaching out to provide coffee related beauty products – such as coffee scrubs!
Fresh One Body was introduced to me via Fresh One Coffee, and I was pretty darn excited! I have been a ‘body scrub’ fan for a while now (since my sister started beauty therapy almost 20 years ago) because they help to look after my skin, more-so with coffee though because it’s a natural product (AND cruelty free!!) – which is what I am all about. I thought I might give you a few researched info on how coffee can benefit your skin and body…because people tend to think coffee is evil, guess what, it’s quite the opposite!
**Coffee Benefits for your body/skin**
MOST coffee scrubs have no chemicals in them, which means it’s going on your skin and soaking in to your body and you are not doing yourself any damage!
It rids of dead skin
Especially around this time of year, a good scrub down once a week is perfect to get your summer body ready and exfoliate all of that dead built up skin, your skin is important – you know that right?
Caffeine helps with cellulite
It’s not the biggest benefit for me, but it’s like a little bonus! Caffeine helps to tighten the skin, so used in a circular motion around your cellulite area’s will definitely start to reduce visible signs temporarily. (NB: A healthy diet and exercise will rid of it also – more permanently)
Coffee is GREAT for your skin
Rather than getting surgery or using chemicals…when applied under and around the eyes, it can minimize the appearance of puffy eyes because caffeine restricts blood vessels, which reduces swelling and inflammation. It can also help treat non-hereditary dark circles under the eyes. Caffeine is also loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines.
Fresh One Coffee Scrubs use coconut oil which help to soak in to your skin and moisturise it, the added coffee helps to penetrate as well – it’s an all rounder great way to scrub off the day! Did I mention – silky smooth legs?
It can block out harmful rays!
Coffee also contains UV protectors which are self explanatory really; blocking out harmful rays from the sun helping us in the fight against premature ageing and skin cancer. (NB: PLEASE still use sunscreen as well!!)
It’s stops you from stinkin’
The cleansing element of coffee is another beneficial factor; this cleanser takes away strong odors by neutralizing and absorbing. (NB: Don’t give up the deodorant just yet though)
I wanted this post to give you insight in to caring for your skin, it’s one of the largest organs on your body (it’s true!!), so you really should look after it! Fresh One Body will be stocking body scrubs soon – in the mean time check out the Fresh One Coffee website HERE and also their instagram @freshonebody.
