When you have your morning cup of joe, does it ever occur to you to pour some in your hair or how about applying some of it on your face? Wondering what I am saying ? Well, you know both brewed coffee and grounds can be used creatively to enhance the health of your skin and hair. Rich in antioxidants, coffee is used in various anti-cellulite creams and face packs. Here I am going to reveal some coffee beauty secrets that can add magic to your beauty routine.
# Reduce Face Puffiness
Swollen eyelids or an overall puffy face can make you look tired or sleepy. But the caffeine in the coffee de-puffs your face in an instant as it draws toxins from the skin topically and immediately increases circulation to the area to help flush out any puffiness.
Take powdered or diluted coffee, add it to an ice tray along with water and freeze into cubes. Massaging your face with these coffee cubes will reduce face puffiness. This increases blood circulation, leaving you refreshed.
# Get Rid of Cellulite
Cellulite is something we all struggle with, isn’t it? Scrubbing coffee grounds on your skin can minimize the appearance of cellulite. A good coffee scrub exfoliates and tightens the skin by stimulating the blood flow.
All you have to do is take 1/2 cup of ground coffee, add 1 teaspoon of sea salt / brown sugar and 2-3 teaspoons of coconut oil/almond oil to it. Mix well and scrub hard. After that cover plastic wrap to the areas you have applied your scrub. Leave it for 10 minutes. Now remove the plastic wrap and rinse off but do not use soap. End up with your favourite moisturizer.
# Tinted Hair Color
Coffee is one of the best known safe and natural hair dye. It adds instant shine and color to your hair.
Mix 2 teaspoons of ground coffee into a handful of conditioner and apply evenly on your hair after a good wash with shampoo. Let this mixture rest on your hair for at least half an hour and then wash it off.
You can also brew 2 tablespoons of dark strong coffee and pour it into spray bottle after cooling it down. Saturate your hair with this coffee spray. Leave it for 30 minutes and rinse off.
# Hair Growth
Eliminating dead skin cells in your hair is as important as your skin. When massaged directly into your scalp, coffee can stimulate the hair follicles to speed up growth.
All you have to do is grind coffee beans, apply it to wet scalp like a scrub and massage for a minute or two before you rinse it off. Let this be followed by your usual shampoo and conditioner routine. This would help keep your scalp clean.
# For Glowing Skin
Want a perfect salon type facial treatment feeling at home? Indulge in the goodness of coffee face pack. Face packs made out of the coffee can give you wonderful results in terms of clear, exfoliated and smooth skin.
Mix 2 tablespoons of yogurt with one tablespoon of ground coffee and apply evenly on your face. Don’t forget the neck area. Leave it on for 15 minutes before you rinse it off.
It’s wonderful and rich aroma will make your skin rejuvenated and stress-free.
