Up-cycled espresso coffee grinds yielding results in skincare

Share Article

Heard about the trend of rubbing coffee on your skin? My Coffee Scrub is proving that its refreshed formulation comprising mainly up-cycled coffee grinds is an effective exfoliant for the face and body, resulting in smooth, toned and moisturized skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and other skin concerns - it's time to give this new fad a try!

Could it really be possible to take used espresso coffee grinds to create an all-natural, effective and luxurious body and face scrub?

Throughout the ageing process, skin cell regeneration slows down, meaning shedding of skin cells becomes slower and take a little longer generate new ones. When old skin cells start to accumulate on the surface of the skin, skin is left looking dry, rough and dull. This build-up of dead skin cells can result in clogged pores, trapped oil and acne - exfoliation removes all those dead skin cells, and unclogs the pores.

Enter freshly roasted coffee grinds... of course the texture of the coffee grinds are extremely effective, but the powerful antioxidants in caffeine are proving to provide impressive benefits when used on the skin, including:

  • naturally exfoliating dead skin cells
  • soothing skin irritation and inflammation
  • reducing the appearance of cellulite
  • softening skin and restoring natural moisture
  • increasing circulation

The massage and exfoliation, as coffee granules are rubbed on the skin, stimulates the blood and lymph flow. As the caffeine in the coffee has a tightening effect, loose skin is reduced, leaving the skin feeling healthy and 'alive'.

The miracle ingredient indeed!

And, it’s so simple to use:

  • In the shower or bath on dry or damp skin, massage a handful of scrub into the skin in a circular motion, spending extra time on dry and trouble spots
  • Leave for 5-10 minutes, before thoroughly rinsing

My Coffee Scrub has re-formulated a variety of blends suited to all skin types, with zesty peppermint, protein rich coconut and the organic combination of kale, almond and coconut. The texture has been created to be gentler on the skin, and is light and airy. After being applied to the skin, My Coffee Scrub will leave the skin feeling fresh, rejuvenated and hydrated, with a light silky glow.

My Coffee Scrub - made in small batches in Melbourne, Australia - is an all-natural product, using no harsh chemicals, and is not tested on animals.
