What She Spreads On Her Skin, Everyone Has At Home – But Nobody Uses It!

The first thing we think about when we get up in the morning is coffee! It’s one of the most popular and widely consumed drinks around the globe and I believe there isn’t a person who doesn’t like a warm cup of coffee in the morning.

It’s no secret that coffee has many health benefits, including protecting against numerous diseases, improving cognitive function and lowering the risk of depression. It turns out that coffee grounds can be a huge help too.
Yes, you can use the leftover coffee grounds (best to use organic coffee) in some surprising ways. For instance, you can use it as a natural beauty remedy. All you have to do is spread the grounds on a piece of baking paper and leave them to dry.
From reducing hideous puffy eyes to enhancing your hair color, find out 10 beauty benefits of ground coffee below!
Clears cellulite
The main ingredient in coffee is caffeine. Caffeine is popularly known to reduce cellulite because of its stimulant properties. It stimulates circulation of blood and lymph in the body which helps transport toxins and wastes to sites of elimination.
Make a thick paste by mixing equal parts coffee grounds and virgin coconut oil into your hand, and kneading it into cellulite-prone areas like the thighs and hips.
Clear up bags under the eyes
Under-eye dark circles and puffiness caused by genetics, allergies, fluid retention, and/or lack of sleep are a common beauty complaint. Coffee is excellent against eye bags and dark circles. It will make your face look fresh and radiant, completely restoring the skin under the eyes.
To remedy the baggage, apply chilled coffee grounds to your under-eye area, let sit for 10 minutes, and rinse well.
Exfoliates dead cells
Coffee has a slightly abrasive texture that has an exfoliating action against dead cells and flaky skin. When used as a gentle scrub, it can scrounge off the flaky skin on the face. You can also use it to scrub cracked heels, peeling hands and more.
In a small bowl, mix together 1 teaspoon coffee grounds with 1/2 teaspoon jojoba oil. Now scrub this on your face gently to remove dead skin.
Softens lips
Chapped cracked lips can be rough and unsightly. At the first sign of chapped lips, mix 1/2 teaspoon used coffee grounds with 1/2 teaspoon honey to create a smooth, yet effective lip scrub. Gently rub the mixture on your lips in a circular motion for 30 seconds, then remove with a wet washcloth.
Brighten skin
You can remove toxins and deep clean pores with antioxidant-rich coffee grounds. Combine 2 tablespoons of coffee grounds with 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil and gently massage the blend onto your facial skin, avoiding the eye area. Wait 30 seconds and then remove with a wet washcloth, making sure to pat remaining olive oil into the skin to impart moisture.
Stimulates blood circulation
Coffee stimulates blood circulation, which is good for beautifying skin and making it look supple and glowing. Make a coffee scrub and use it to promote blood circulation.
Beautifies feet
Dry and flaky feet can be unsightly especially during cold winter. Make feet beautifying scrub to soften cracked heels, moisturize feet and soften them.
Mix 1 tablespoon ground coffee and enough coconut oil to make a rough paste. Now prepare a warm tub of hot soapy water and immerse your feet. While your feet are soaking, use the scrub on them in gentle circular motions. You can also use a brush to help with the exfoliation.
Exfoliates scalp
Use coffee to exfoliate your scalp when it feels clogged up and grimy. It can also help scrub off dandruff flakes and make your scalp clean and fresh.
In a bowl, combine 1 tablespoon regular sugar, 1 tablespoon ground coffee and enough coconut oil to make a soft but gritty mixture. Scrub this onto your scalp then wash your hair as usual.
Add shine to hair and stimulate growth
Coffee also makes hair shine and stimulate hair growth. Make your own follicle facial by working brewed coffee grounds into your scalp with your fingertips for 60 seconds, rinsing with cool water, and finishing with your typical shampoo and conditioner routine. Over time, and with continued use, you’ll find that your locks are shinier, and you may notice increased hair growth thanks to the stimulating effects of caffeine.
Enhances hair color
You can elevate the richness of your dark hair using coffee. It said to bring some nice tints to brown or black hair and strengthen the strands.
Mix 1 tablespoon of freshly brewed coffee (make sure it cools down first) and 2 tablespoons of conditioner. Apply it on your hair and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Rinse off and enjoy!
