Coffee Body Scrub

coffee scrub bodyExfoliating is surely one of the top beauty “secrets”. It’s not just for your face; you can exfoliate your entire body as well at least once a week. Exfoliating on a regular basis will help you remove dead skin cells and allow new skin cells to turnover, making your skin look rejuvenated and more radiant. All these years we’ve been chugging coffee —without even appreciating that using a coffee scrub for body could slough away dry, dead skin to reveal a real glow. Considering the beauty benefits of coffee—like antioxidants and exfoliation—it only makes sense to use it in our regular skin care routines.

Why Body Scrub With Coffee?

Coffee ground in body scrubs works as a great natural exfoliant because of following reasons:

(i) Ground coffee bean releases slight amount of caffeine, which gets absorbed into your skin and can help increase circulation. Caffeine is water soluble so it gets mixed with water in shower and causes caffeine to go into your skin, which may helps increase blood circulation through your skin cells.

(ii) Crushed coffee beans act as natural exfoliating agent.

(iii) It smells damn good, which some times you need to liven you up in mornings.
