Summer is here, and what could be better than kicking back with a cold drink by the pool while enjoying the sunshine? It’s also the best time to break out your favorite summer looks, which means that your skin has to be in tiptop shape to complement your wardrobe. If you’ve been suffering from dry, flaky, and dull-looking skin over the past few months, it may be time for you to try natural coffee scrubs to give you a radiant glow.
Polish Your Skin to Perfection
Scrubbing or exfoliating your skin is one of the best and most inexpensive ways to make your skin look fresh. By removing the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, you uncover the fresh cells below, which have not been clogged with dirt, oil, or pollution. But before you reach for any of the readily available scrubs on the market, it’s important to know that one of the best scrubs that you can use is made from natural coffee grounds. Coffee scrubs are superior to synthetic scrubs for many reasons, but perhaps the best reason is that it is an all-natural product.
Remember that anything you apply to your skin will be absorbed by your cells, and because it is an organic product, a scrub made from coffee grounds is less likely to harm your body than artificial scrubs. Here’s how a coffee scrub can give you a healthy and more radiant glow this summer.
It can improve cellulite
Coffee grounds contain caffeine, which gives a tightening effect to skin when applied topically. With continued use, it has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite over time. By massaging a combination of coffee grounds, sea salt, and coconut oil into problem areas, you not only exfoliate the skin, but you also moisturize and firm those areas.
It makes your skin smooth
Exfoliating with a coffee scrub can result in a softer and smoother skin. The key is to grind the coffee beans well to produce smaller and finer granules and to use this at least once a week while in the shower. If you work out regularly or if you’re always outdoors, consider using the scrub two to three times a week.
It can help your skincare products work better
Most people think that their expensive creams and lotions are not working as effectively as they should be. However, these products may work better when there isn’t a thick layer of dead skin cells preventing them from delivering beneficial ingredients to the skin.
Through regular exfoliation with a coffee scrub, you can remove old skin cells so that moisturizers, serums, and other skincare products are able to penetrate more deeply into the skin to give you better results.
When making natural coffee scrubs, make sure to mix your coffee grounds with other organic oils or salts to get the full benefits of an organic exfoliant. In no time at all, you’ll get healthier, better-looking skin that you can bare with confidence this summer.
