There’s something about coffee! Its a stuff that many people cannot live without, I can, but I know many who definitely need their essential dose of cuppa in their life. Likewise, in beauty industry, coffee is raved about its beauty benefits. Scrubs, body butters, body lotions, face creams proclaiming the goodness of coffee have caught our attention and I get coffee-rich beauty stuff for its wonderful and rich aroma even though I am not a compulsive coffee drinker, I rarely have coffee! The best thing about coffee is that they have loads of anti-oxidants and work against free radical damage. It does a whole lot of good to puffy eyes, reducing them considerably. Coffee also is a great exfoliator, can reduce inflammation and redness, and also can remove tan when combined with other potent ingredients. Since it has a great aroma, it soothes and calms and face packs made out of coffee will give you wonderful results in terms of clear, exfoliated, smooth skin. Here are some recipes that you should definitely try.
