When it comes to face scrubs, you generally want a milder exfoliating agent than you would for a body scrub. This is simply so the more sensitive skin of the face doesn’t get overworked. As such, some might consider coffee too aggressive for a face scrub. But truth be told, there are actually many benefits of a coffee face scrub.
With the proper texture, coffee can be ideal for the face. And when you consider everything else coffee has going for it (big antioxidant) then it’s easy to see why it’s such a great choice. It’s the reason that the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics have infused their Better Bean Clean Face Coffee Scrub with the superstar ingredient. And it’s not just ordinary coffee, either. The product contains Coffea Arabica (Organic Green Coffee) Seed Extract. This boasts far more antioxidant potential than ordinary coffee. Here’s why a coffee face mask is worth a try.
5 Benefits of a Coffee Face Scrub
#1 It’s the perfect texture for exfoliating.
The first key for coffee as a great face scrub ingredient is the texture. It buffs away imperfections and leaves your face feeling renewed and refreshed.
#2 It banishes wrinkles.
Antioxidants prevent wrinkles, but actually to repair wrinkles that are already beginning to form. That’s yet another feather in the cap of coffee as an ingredient in your face scrub.
#3 It targets imperfections.
Coffee also contains both chlorogenic and ferulic acid, which are actually beneficial acids that almost give the coffee mask a mild “chemical peel” effect. It’s sure to make your skin both look and feel great.
#4 It makes you radiant.
Coffee enhances blood flow to the face, which can give your skin a brighter, positively glowing appearance.
#5 It tightens and tones.
Finally, the caffeine in coffee has a mild constricting effect on the blood vessels, and also helps pulls moisture away from fat cells. The result is a firmer-looking face that is tight and toned.
