Coffee is rich in antioxidants, which can prevent premature skin ageing1. It's also an amazing source of nutrient that can benefit your skin & hair. Plus, just the smell of coffee beans can make you less stressed2. On a topical level, it's great for exfoliating, increasing blood flow and balancing pH levels.
But it's not the coffee beans from your daily cup of joe that's used in skincare! The ingredient in skincare are the most potent elements of coffee - caffeine & extracts of the coffee berries (also known as coffee seed or coffee cherry).
Four Coffee Benefits for Skin & Hair
1. Anti-ageing benefits
With extra anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, the caffeine and coffee berry extract in skincare can help fight wrinkles, calm redness and reduce swelling.
2. Helps reduce cellulite
Coffee can help improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels, and the increased blood flow helps decrease the appearance of cellulite. A good coffee scrub exfoliates dead skin cells making your skin look smoother - try the Salt + Glow Body Polish.
3. Helps brighten dark circles
Same concept as cellulite reduction, caffeine can help dilate blood vessels that make up dark circles. It also has natural bleaching agents that help lighten discolouration under eyes.
4. Assists with hair growth
Caffeine can help with hair growth & stop hair loss3 as it's a stimulant that increases blood circulation to your hair follicles. This results in helping your hair grow faster, stronger and look fuller & thicker!
