Skin Exfoliation Coffee grounds work great as a face scrub because their texture helps exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells. The benefits include a smoother and cleaner face, and as an added benefit, the coffee also helps prevent dryness on your face. To use, simply make a scrub out of half a cup each of brown sugar and ground coffee, along with a quarter cup of olive oil. Mix well until it turns into a fine paste and apply it directly on your face, massaging in circular motions. When you're done, rinse thoroughly and apply moisturizer for best results. 2. Skin Softening Easier and cheaper than a salon facial treatment is a coffee-cocoa face pack, which can quickly be made even in the comforts of your home. Simply mix two spoons each of cocoa powder and ground coffee, then add to three spoons of milk and a spoonful of honey. If your skin is oily, you may want to use yogurt instead of milk. This mixture can then be applied directly on your face. After about 30 minutes or so, you can wash off the face pack with clean water. The benefits of this face pack include softer, healthier, and hydrated skin. It can also tighten your pores. 3. Cellulite Reduction Another one of the great benefits of coffee on skin is reducing cellulite. This is so because the caffeine in coffee dehydrates your fatty cells, causing the cellulite to appear diminished and making your skin look much smoother. In fact, studies have shown that skin creams which listed caffeine as an ingredient are up to 17% more effective when it comes to cellulite reduction. 4. Treating Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes Yet another advantage of coffee is its ability to reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark under-eye circles. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, caffeine can minimize the accumulation of blood under your eyes, therefore preventing dark circles. It is so effective that almost every product marketed as a way to erase dark circles has a certain amount of caffeine in its formula. 5. Anti-Oxidation Coffee is very rich in antioxidants and surprisingly has a far higher content than even fruits and vegetables. This makes it a great remedy for skin damage caused by UV rays from exposure to the sun. Research has proven that applying coffee on the skin provides a layer of protection from harmful radiation. It does this by inhibiting a certain protein enzyme, thereby reducing the risk of getting skin cancer. Moreover, coffee’s diuretic properties make it great for treating a condition called Rosaceae, relieving the discomfort caused by redness and irritation due to sun damage. 6. Skin Tightening Adding to the long list of benefits of coffee on skin is its properties that allow for skin tightening. Caffeine is great for minimizing the appearance of fine lines around the face, and can also diminish puffiness in certain areas of the face. It is not a surprise that once again, coffee is added as an ingredient to many anti-aging beauty products that aim to tighten skin and reduce fine lines. Most importantly, caffeine has been shown to hinder the development of cancer cells in the body. 7. Skin Brightening The key to having beautiful skin is to have healthy skin, and the best way to achieve this is to make sure that you are protected from viruses, fungi, and bacteria that can harm your face and affect your skin. To give yourself a radiant glow, mix coffee grounds and Epson salt in warm filter water and use this to wash your face. Afterwards, use the same coffee grounds to massage and exfoliate your face, rinsing again with the same coffee water. 8. Anti-Inflammation Caffeine has anti-inflammatory properties that make it a great way to get rid of any redness and swelling on your face and skin. It works so well that a study has even shown that its performance is already comparable to that of aspirin when it comes to minimizing puffiness, at least on rats. Another experiment that involved testing the effectiveness of coffee as an added ingredient to anti-inflammatory creams yielded significant positive results, proving once again the benefits of coffee on skin.
