We are all aware of (and many of us can relate to) America’s obsession with coffee. In fact, according to a 2015 Gallup poll, 64% of Americans drink at least one cup of coffee each day, with an average off 2.7 cups per day among drinkers. The aroma, the health benefits, and that extra kick of caffeine can be so enticing and downright addictive. These powerful qualities that draw us in to consume coffee daily can also have huge benefits for our skin. In honor of National Coffee Day, we are breaking down the top four reasons you should consider incorporating coffee into your beauty routine:
1. Detoxify and Protect
Coffee is loaded with antioxidants that help to defend against environmental toxins and free radicals our skin encounters on a daily basis.
Coffee grounds make an excellent and gentle exfoliator to remove rough patches and dry skin for softer, more radiant-looking skin.
Coffee is known to help increase collagen production, which promotes skin cell regeneration and can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The stimulating properties of coffee can help improve blood flow and circulation, waking up your skin for a brighter, more radiant look.
We love coffee so much that we use it in many of our products. Our Exfoliating Detox Body Soap contains Arabica Coffee that gently exfoliates and detoxifies while improving the texture of skin. Our full Detox Body Care line, including Detox Body Cream, Detox Body Scrub and Detox Body Wash, all contain Green Coffee Bean Extract, which is loaded with antioxidants and helps protect skin against damaging free radicals.
