5 Reasons Why I Would Marry Coffee If I Could

I don’t need to tell you how wonderful coffee is. If I could marry coffee, I would, but as far as I know, it’s illegal and, well … sort of ridiculous! Coffee is delicious, wakes you up, energizes you and it can give you all the benefits of a spa treatment at home. Oh yes, your daily cup of Joe has some surprising hidden uses. Here are 5 reasons why coffee is the best beauty ally.

1. Cellulite be gone

Cellulite is one of those (horrible and unfair) facts of life. Every woman struggles with it. You can exercise your butt off and you will still see it every time you look at the mirror. But don’t worry, coffee is here for you. Using a coffee scrub on your thighs and butt will help you minimize the appearance of cellulite. This is because you will be exfoliating and massaging the area with an energizing substance, so you will stimulate blood flow and tighten the skin.

2. Bye bye puffy eyes

Lets get this out of the way: you probably don’t get enough sleep at night. That’s the whole reason you need your morning coffee in the first place, right? As it turns out, drinking a cup of coffee is not the only way this wonderful product will make you look awake. Save the used grounds, wait for them to cool off and apply to the area right under your eye and lids. Relax for about 20 minutes and rinse off with cool water. You will notice that those dark circles around your eyes and the puffy appearance will be gone.

3. The smoothest skin you’ve ever had

Coffee grounds are perfect for exfoliating and energizing your skin. Mix coffee grounds with coconut oil and use on your face and body to get rid of dead skin cells, dirt, oil and other impurities. The best thing about this completely natural (and cheap!) exfoliator is that coffee beans are rich in caffeic acid. This substance boosts collagen production in your skin, which means more elasticity and a younger-looking appearance. You will end up with a smooth complexion and a radiant color.

4. Long, luscious locks

Caffeine increases blood circulation when massaging the skin and you can use this to your hair’s advantage. Use coffee grounds to massage your scalp and stimulate your follicles, so your hair will grow faster and stronger. This method will also get rid of product buildup, dead cells and even dandruff. An alternative is to brew strong coffee, let it cool and put it in a spray bottle. After you are done with your hair routine in the shower, spray your roots and massage a bit for healthier hair.

5. Get it in your beauty products

If you are in love with the properties of coffee but you are not a fan of making your own scrubs, masks and treatments, buy them instead. Next time you go shopping, look for beauty products that have coffee or caffeine to improve blood flow, invigorate your skin and strengthen your hair.
