These coffee benefits will brew your mind!

Coffee, apart from giving a kickstart to your day, also has an array of health benefits. You can always ditch the chemicals on your skincare shelf and go for something natural to take care of your body. Coffee is one such ingredient that can be used directly on your skin and hair. The goodness of caffeine can help repair skin damage, especially in the rising temperatures.

Here is how you can use coffee for your skin and hair

Decreases puffiness

The puffiness around the eyes, especially when you wake up, can make you look exhausted. To help with that, coffee can improve blood circulation. Dip a cotton pad in the coffee and then keep it in the refrigerator for at least 20 min. Use that cotton pad under the eyes for 10- 15min in the morning.

Dissolve Cellulite

Cellulite is nothing but just a buildup of fat on the thigh area, buttocks and abdomen because of the poor flow of blood around that area. It doesn't harm the body but it makes the area look saggy. Coffee can help to reduce the uneven texture of skin because of cellulite. You need coffee powder, sugar and coconut oil. Mix all the ingredients well and then rub this mixture on the cellulite affected area. Do this three to four times a week. It helps to improve the flow of blood around that area and exfoliate dead skin cells too, which takes us to our next point.

Coffee as an exfoliator

Coffee is simply one of the best exfoliators because of its texture and also because it contains antioxidants. Take some coffee powder and mix it with coconut oil or olive oil to make a paste. Rub the paste on your body twice or thrice. Caffeine will help to brighten up the body by getting rid of dead skin and oil will help to nourish it.

Coffee for the scalp treatment

Regular styling of hair, especially with heat, can do serious damage in the long run. Removing the dead skin cells from the scalp is necessary to maintain healthy hair and promote hair growth. All you need is some ground coffee, mix it with curd and then massage it on the scalp. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. Do this once a week for best results.

Coffee as a skin brightening mask

Coffee is rich in antioxidants and can help to remove impurities from skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a perfect anti tan treatment. DIY coffee mask helps to make skin smooth and reduce fine lines. For that, take coffee powder and mix it with curd or with honey. Apply it all over the face for 15 minutes and gently rub it all over the face and rinse with cold water. It increases the circulation of blood and helps to look brighter.

Coffee as a pre-workout drink

Before going for a workout, we need to energise our body. Coffee can be a good pre workout drink as it is high in caffeine and helps to enhance you performance. Taking a black coffee shot before a workout can increase the muscle power and keep your energised for the rest of your workout.
