Have you ever given DIY recipes a go? If you have, you would know that sometimes they’re not as easy as Pintrest makes it seem. Thankfully, a new beauty trend is emerging which will allow you have the best of both worlds! Make way for the “Coffee Body Scrub” trend, which is a safe and vegan friendly beauty product. The best part is, you need not worry about concocting or preparing it yourself. Coffee scrubs are made from coffee grounds which is ideal when wanting to make a natural and inexpensive homemade face and body scrub, it is also effective without worrying it being too harsh on one’s skin. Many of nature’s exfoliating properties aren’t gentle thus will slough and smooth skin (think: sugar, or sand). When coffee ground is blended thoroughly, it becomes softer and it is good to use for exfoliating dead skin. It will leave skin silky smooth without causing any form of irritation. While I still have stretch marks, I could certainly see shrinkage in their appearance and that’s what matters.Here are reasons why your skin will thank you for an external coffee boost:

It’s a rich source of antioxidants

The environment is full of free radicals (pollution particles, etc.) that wreak havoc on the skin. However, loading up skin with the antioxidants in coffee protects it and bolsters its natural defenses. In fact, a study showed that coffee bean extracts can be responsible for skin cell energy preservation due to its free-radical properties.”

It protects against harsh sunrays

UVB is harmful and may even lead to more complicated and life-threatening skin diseases. Protecting your skin with caffeine may protect it against UV carcinogens. According to another study, caffeine actually inhibits the DNA damage response, thus protecting skin against the adverse effects of UVB. The inhibition of DNA damage response may offer a therapeutic option for non-melanoma skin cancer.

It makes skin smooth and bright

Because of its qualities that signal tissue repair, coffee plays a crucial role in regulating cell re-growth, leading to retained hydration (increased collagen) and increased skin elasticity.

It enhances circulation

When coffee promotes blood circulation, it leads to healthy and energized skin, effectively reducing the swelling of tissues and de-puffing areas of the skin.

Aids in Weight Loss

Drinking caffeinated coffee can help in weight loss. Regular drinkers often report decrease in appetite, resulting in weight loss.

Improves Memory

Caffeine increases the level of neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. This is associated with attention, concentration, learning and memory. Hence, it has a positive effect on memory and cognitive function.


The protective antioxidant benefits of coffee also extend to your hair—mask-containing java will prevent breakage and enhance shine. Not to mention, leave your mane smelling amazing.
