Why You Should Slather Yourself in Coffee

Drinking coffee may give you the bubble guts, but rubbing it on your body has a few benefits.

O I already over shared a little bit in the opening but seriously coffee wreaks havoc on my stomach. It's awful. That being said, coffee has some amazing skin benefits you should probably know about.

Okay so now that you've seen mellow like a contestant on naked and afraid AND learned how to make your own body scrub let's talk about why this stuff is awesome sauce.

Coffee has some amazing skin benefits. First and foremost it is a great and gentle exfoliant. Exfoliation is so important especially if you want to look younger and brighter but you want to make sure that you're not using something that is too rough on your skin. For me, coffee is the perfect middle ground and I definitely look brighter after using it. The caffeine in coffee also promotes cell regeneration and circulation. It's an all around win!

Now let's talk about the olive oil. The Holy Grail (after coconut oil of course) enhances exfoliation so it's a dream team when combined with coffee grounds. And after use, you won't have nasty clogged pores just beautiful glowy skin.

I really just added coconut oil because I like it but it also has properties that will enhance your natural beauty. Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer which will leave your skin nice and hydrated. BUT be careful not to use too much because it can clog your pores and cause acne. Coconut oil is also a natural antibacterial which will help your scrub keep longer if you don't use it all at once.

Random: I once went on a date with a guy who had an obsession with honey. I knew as soon as he told me that that he was not The One. Weird food fetishes aside, honey is pretty great for you skin. Honey is actually a natural antibacterial as well and can help prevent acne. Along with all of these other ingredients, honey helps to give you a natural and youthful glow.

Hopefully I've convinced you to start incorporating a coffee scrub into your beauty routine! Now tell me, what is your favorite beauty ritual?
