When it comes to skincare and beauty, most women are worried about wrinkles. So that’s the primary reason that they might give a product with coffee in it a try. But wrinkle-fighting is far from the only positive attribute of coffee as a skincare product, and especially a coffee scrub.
According to the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics, one of the secondary benefits of coffee is how it tones and brightens the skin. Here’s how you can take advantage of this magic bean’s skin-brightening benefits in a coffee scrub.
How to Use a Coffee Scrub to Brighten Your Skin
#1 The Bean Extract Advantage
The main reason that coffee is so great at brightening the skin is due to its high antioxidant content. The antioxidants in coffee enhance blood flow, promote cell regeneration and repair existing damage, all which contribute to brighter, radiant skin.
And while coffee on its own has abundant antioxidants, the most powerful punch comes from coffee bean extract. All of the products in the Callyssee Cosmetics line feature Coffea Arabica (Organic Green Coffee) Seed Extract, which boasts ten times the antioxidant potential of green tea, as a potent ingredient.
#2 Scrub to Brighten
Coffee’s excellent exfoliating properties give it another step up in terms of brightening your skin. The grounds in coffee offer the perfect texture for scrubbing away old and tired skin, leaving your face refreshed and renewed and ready to face the day!
Another interesting fact about coffee is that it’s slightly acidic. This might seem like a bad thing for your face, but it’s a mild acid that can actually give your face a bit of chemical exfoliation along with the mechanical exfoliation. This only serves to brighten your face further.
