10 Beauty Benefits Of Coffee
- Hello, silky smooth skin
Coffee grinds make a great skin exfoliator! Try this skin care tip – mix coarsely ground coffee beans with brown sugar, a few drops of vanilla extract and a spoon of Dabur Gulabari Rose Water. Now use this all-natural body scrub once a week to remove dead cells and get smooth, supple skin. However, don’t follow this skin care tip on your face; the mixture might be too harsh for your facial skin. The other good thing about scrubbing is that it reduces the appearance of cellulite and firms up your skin, thus giving you smoother skin.
- Erase puffy eyes and dark circles
Coffee doesn’t just wake you up, it also wakes up your eyes by reducing puffiness, inflammation and constricting blood vessels that cause redness. That’s not all; the caffeine rich in antioxidants also eliminate dark circles.
- Free radicals fighter
Did you know that free radicals can cause premature skin ageing? Yes, the antioxidants in caffeine eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines and make your skin look supple and elastic, thereby improving the overall look of your skin.
- Inflammation soother
Packed with anti-inflammatory properties, caffeine is effective in reducing inflammation. Thus your complexion gets better and you have flawless and even-toned skin.
- UV damage, repaired
We all know that one of the biggest reasons behind skin damage is exposure to UV rays. But what’s not very well known is the fact that caffeine is considered a stronger antioxidant than polyphenols which go into green tea, therefore coffee combats UV damage quite effectively.
- Hair growth, simulated
As per a recent study, coffee, a stimulant for hair follicles is known to increase the growth of hair follicles by a whopping 46% and extend the life cycle of a strand by 33%. Both the findings make this ingredient a great hair care tip for those suffering from hair fall.
- Hair so manageable
