Coffee (Coffea Arabica) offers a high concentration of antioxidants in the form of chlorogenic acids (CGA), which counter inflammation, calm blotchiness and tighten pores to yield a smoother complexion. The stimulating effect of caffeine boosts blood flow, balancing out your skin tone and helping to reduce the formation of dark spots, giving you that self-care glow!
Coffee’s toning and skin tightening benefits help to reduce the look of fine lines and tighten the pores of the skin. When infused into a lotion or butter to moisturise the skin, the flavonoids in coffee reduce the look of puffiness and redness, giving your skin a firmer appearance.
When used regularly in your skincare routine, coffee grounds in a body scrub aid to slough away dead skin from the surface while the caffeic acid boosts your skin’s protective layer against environmental stress, keeping it radiant and healthy.
