From busting cellulite to stimulating hair follicles coffee is loaded with a lot of cosmetic goodness! Add it to your brown sugar and coconut oil for a simple anti-cellulite scrub that would leave your skin oh so soft. Coffee is a topical DIY ingredient that should be in every naturalista’s cupboard.
The caffeine in coffee has a number of benefits for your skin, from treating redness and inflammation, to reducing the appearance of under-eye circles, to getting rid of cellulite. By incorporating caffeine into your skin care routine, you can reveal evenly toned, smooth skin all over your body.
A study published in the International Journal of Dermatology (Volume 46, Issue 1, pages 27-35) addressed coffee hair growth benefits as a possible stimulant for hair follicles. The study found that caffeine works by blocking the effects of a chemical known as DHT which damages hair follicles and is thought to cause Male Pattern Baldness (MPB).
Brew some coffee and use it in your final rinse – let sit for 5 minutes and wash off or leave it in as a leave in conditioner.
