Coffee and its Benefits for the Skin
Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. It is a source of pleasure for the lovers of this ancestral infusion, but it is also a great ally for your skin. Some studies explain that the external use of coffee, when it is not consumed orally, helps treat cellulite and eliminate dimpled skin with its unique properties.
Its topical use has become a common element in aesthetic and cosmetic products for women, so it is very common to find it as an added ingredient.
But, what is caffeine’s mechanism of action? This stimulating substance found in coffee not only stimulates our nervous system, but also helps burn fat, which helps reduce cellulite. Coffee is also a natural exfoliant, ground beans promote cell renovation with their anti-inflammatory effects that soothe the skin when it is irritated or reddened. This product also has an astringent effect that eliminates bad odors and promotes deep cleaning; it is also a natural antioxidant that protects the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals, which cause premature aging.
Some beauty products or treatments have coffee beans among their main ingredients to help firm, slim and define the figure. It is used in therapies to revitalize the skin with coffee-based face masks, which rejuvenate, soften, hydrate and freshen the skin.
Numerous Aesthetic Applications
Coffee has unique properties to help eliminate dimpled skin thanks to caffeine, which helps break fat cells that accumulate on the skin, reactivating blood flow, increasing the levels of fat burning molecules, and producing a lipolytic effect. Many reducing gels have coffee in their ingredients.
Easy to Make at Home
You only need to take the remnants of the coffee and apply it directly on your thighs, buttocks or abdomen making upward circular movements to activate blood flow. Another option is to ground the beans and apply them with a little water, cover with plastic film for a couple of minutes to be absorbed and then clarify.
Coffee also has good results when treating under eye circles. The reason is the same, it activates blood flow. Under eye circles appear on the face because blood cannot flow freely, either by lack of sleep, too much alcohol, bad nutrition, stress etc. Caffeine relieves the area. We can apply coffee compresses under the eyes or over the closed eyes for some minutes, making sure the compound does not enter the eyes.
The application of ground coffee on the body helps eliminate dead cells through peelings that leave the skin cleaner, softer, and brighter with face or body masks, using circular movements to massage.
