Why is it a great ingredient for the skin?
Coffee helps protect your skin from free radicals due to its antioxidant properties. The lees will protect and reinforce your skin's natural defenses, helping with imperfections and giving it more shine.
Firmness and Elasticity
Coffee grounds have the ideal consistency to create an exfoliant. The texture is ideal for removing dead skin cells and contributing to the production of new skin cells. In addition, it contains caffeic acid which is known to increase the production of collagen, a protein produced by our cells that helps to “maintain” the firmness of the skin. Thus, the lees provide firmness and elasticity, making your skin younger.
Coffee VS Microplastic
Microplastic is used by many industries for a wide variety of purposes, including exfoliants. Unlike microplastics, coffee grounds are rich in antioxidants, natural oils and can have a great effect on some skin conditions such as psoriasis. The lees do not harm the environment when used, not contaminating the water.
Coffee beans are a rich source of antioxidants and caffeine, possessing anti-inflammatory properties that make it an ideal ingredient to reduce inflammation and redness of the skin, leaving it with a more even tone.
Promotes blood circulation
Coffee grounds promote blood circulation and reduce cellulite. Once toxins and waste are transported to places of elimination, the skin is healthier and more energized. When using coffee grounds on the skin, as a face mask or just as an exfoliator, they will increase the radiance of the skin, leaving it radiant.
How to use: Use 1-2 times a week in the morning or at night. Massage a good amount into the body and gently exfoliate. In drier areas you can leave it for a few minutes. Rinse with water.
