Coffee Scrubs for Acne, Cellulite & Eczema

Coffee Scrubs for Acne, Cellulite & Eczema

The Science Behind a Coffee Scrub

Since a homemade coffee scrub is crammed full of antioxidants, it can help rid your skin of free radicals, which as we all know, lead to a range of skin problems. These include eczema (or very dry skin), varicose veins, cellulite and acne, not even to mention the visible signs of premature aging

Caffeine is also a diuretic, which promotes the body's ability to flush out toxins, and when applied topically, it can help reduce inflammation and swelling. Oh, and if you were wondering, your skin really is capable of absorbing caffeine when it's applied topically!

If you've been looking for ways to treat your unsightly skin problems, then a coffee scrub is well worth trying.

Coffee Scrub For Cellulite

Varicose veins and cellulite might be two of the most dreaded skin problems, and they're conditions that most women try to fight on a daily basis.

By using an in-shower coffee scrub you'll be assisting your body in getting rid of fat stored in the cells of the skin. Because coffee is a natural diuretic, it helps get rid of varicose veins and cellulite by plumping up the skin and increasing its elasticity.

Furthermore, by using your coffee scrub on a daily basis, you'll be exfoliating dead skin cells and stimulate lymph node drainage, stimulating blood flow to your skin and engaging your circulatory system, which all leads to skin that appears smoother and firmer.

Coffee Scrub For Acne

If you have a mild (or even bad) case of acne, there's a simple way to get rid of it: coffee scrub. The idea seems pretty simple, and the method is even simpler.

By using a coffee face scrub on a daily basis, you'll be preventing breakouts, drying out pimples, getting rid of acne scars, tightening the pores and softening your skin. There really isn't a simpler (or cheaper) way to get that healthy, glowing skin you've been chasing for years.

Coffee Scrub For Eczema

Whether you're battling to get rid of that dry patch of skin, or you're fighting a full-blown callous effect, Eczema can be pretty darn hard to get rid of. Luckily, you can improve the health of your skin by using a simple coffee scrub on a daily basis.

By using the scrub on a daily basis, you'll be exfoliating your skin, getting rid of dead skin cells and promoting the skin's natural healing abilities thanks to the antioxidant contents found in the ground coffee. The sugar will help fight off bacteria, and since sugar contains glycolic acid, it can also promote skin regeneration.

The Right Scrub For The Right Job

If you're buying coffee scrub it's important to know what problem you're trying to eliminate and where you're going to be using it.

For example, while we're partial to our organic coffee scrub, it wouldn't make for a great facial scrub. It's too course. A scrub like this one, is specifically formulated as a facial scrub.

Secondly, find ingredients that help to compliment the coffee scrub. If you're looking to get rid of acne, a coffee scrub with a coconut oil base isn't a great product for you - unlike Argan Oil, coconut oil can clog pores. However, for stretch marks or cellulite coconut oil does a terrific job complimenting the coffee.

If you're planning on making your own coffee scrub, the same rules apply. Most DIY recipes will claim it's good for cellulite, acne, varicose veins and eczema. Consider the secondary ingredients very carefully to ensure it's the right scrub for the job.

Coffee Scrub - a Silver Bullet?

While a coffee scrub might not be an instantaneous solution to your skin problems, it can help to drastically improve the appearance of the skin. When used as part of your daily beauty routine, caffeine definitely benefits your skin and promotes its healthy glow.

As you can see, using a coffee scrub can help you combat eczema, cellulite, varicose veins and acne, and all you need are the remains of your daily cuppa Joe.

We hope that this post has been helpful in assisting you to find the safest and most natural approach to tackling 4 of the most common skin problems out there.
