WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COFFEE SCRUB?

August 30, 2016 Rachael Brown

Although coffee has several benefits as a beverage, it may be used as a body scrub as well. Coffee oil is often used in aromatherapy treatments. The scent of coffee acts to clear a person’s mind of excessive thoughts. When a coffee body scrub is applied, the skin absorbs the caffeine antioxidant and can help prevent premature aging. Coffee scrubs provide exfoliation due to the salt that’s added to it. After the skin is exfoliated, it is able to absorb moisture more effectively as well. The caffeine found in coffee scrubs typically increases blood flow and may reduce the appearance of cellulite. Finally, coffee helps with skin texture. Caffeine is a vasodilator, which means it constricts blood vessels in the skin.
