Coffee Scrub for Skin: Eliminating Panda Eyes and Cellulite.

Coffee Scrub can be your alternative to treat skin and eliminate cellulite naturally. Drinking coffee has become an essential part of daily habits for many people. When you consider the benefits of coffee for the body – that is as a morning boost and rich in antioxidants – coffee can also be our beauty care habit.

The content of caffeine in coffee is able to relieve inflammation in the skin, or you can use it as a natural treatment for acne disorders on your skin. Coffee also useful for dealing with wrinkles on your faces naturally. Using a coffee scrub is also one method to smooth the face. If you want to make your own coffee scrub at home, consider the following ways.


Benefits of coffee to remove panda eyes and cellulite.

The caffeine content in coffee has strong anti-inflammatory properties that make it ideal for reducing inflammation and redness on the skin. A study conducted in Seoul National University in 1981, researchers found that the effect of caffeine in reducing inflammation was almost as strong as aspirin. The results of a 1978 study at the University of Tennessee found that caffeine as an additional active ingredient in anti-inflammatory creams significantly increased the effectiveness of the drug.

Although caffeine cannot completely remove dark circles caused by hereditary factors, applying caffeine under your eyes will deflate swelling and inflammation related to dark circles. In addition, caffeine can also reduce blood clots under your eyes which cause “panda eyes”.

Caffeine in coffee effective in disguising cellulite. A study published in the Journal of Cosmetology 2008 showed that anti-cellulite cream containing caffeine can reduce cellulite by as much as 17% of fat cell diameter, while creams containing siloxanetriol alginate caffeine (SAC) showed a decrease in cellulite appearance by 26%.

Coffee powder is a natural mechanical exfoliator, meaning they can be used to lift dead skin to show a layer of healthy skin underneath, while market exfoliator products use acidic chemicals to exfoliate the skin. Exfoliating dead skin with coffee powder can facilitate blood flow and make your skin look tighter and shinier.

The importance of adding oil to coffee scrubs for your skin.

Oil in coffee scrubs is to decrease the texture of the scrub not too rough (scrub granules that are too rough will actually hurt the skin). Depending on the type of oil you use, you will feel different benefits. Some natural oils that you can use for coffee scrubs:

Olive oil.

Olive oil contains healthy fats, like avocados, to tighten and moisturize the skin with a combination of vitamins A and E. Olive oil also contains anti-inflammatory properties that can treat dry and itchy skin, and is reddened by irritation, such as eczema and psoriasis.

Grape seed oil.

Grape seed oil is the result of extraction from grape seeds. Grape seed oil contains antioxidants and high anti-inflammation which is effective in treating acne. Grape seed oil also contains linoleic acid which boosts skin health from the inside. Grape seed oil contains a powerful astringent property that helps tighten the skin and close the pore, helping you avoid blocking sebum that causes acne. This oil also helps speed up the process of healing wounds and zits.

Almond oil.

Almond oil is obtained from the process of squeezing almonds without going through the cooking process. One of the biggest secrets behind the use of almond oil for skin care is the high content of fatty acids. Fatty acids in almond oil help lock the skin’s natural moisture by creating a protective wall. Moisturizing content in almond oil is very effective for conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea.

Almond oil is also useful for skin tightening and tightening. Almond oil is a natural exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and stimulate healthier skin growth. When used topically, almond oil will be absorbed by fat cells in the skin. This moisture is then utilized by tissues in the body to repair damaged cells and give a younger appearance to the skin.

How to make coffee scrub to treat your skin?

1. Coffee Scrub-sugar and salt.

Coffee scrubs have three main compositions that are effective for creating natural exfoliator granules: coffee, sugar, and salt. What you need is:

  • 1 cup of coarse ground coffee powder
  • ½ cup of palm sugar or sea salt
  • 1 cup of your choice oil (olive oil, grapeseed oil, canola oil, coconut oil)

Mix all the dry ingredients into a bowl, then add the oil. If you use coconut oil, you can melt the coconut oil in the microwave first for 20-30 seconds. Mix well until it becomes a rough batter. You can use a bath brush or with your hands. Rub the coffee scrub mixture all over your body, including the face and cellulite area, with a circular motion message. Leave for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Repeat twice a week, or every time you take a shower.
