Why Coffee Is Better On Your Body

September 29, 2019

 

There are few smells more universally evocative than coffee; the fresh beans, the softly ground coffee. While most of us start our day with a coffee, have you ever wondered about the side effects of this addictive but legal drug?



Why coffee is better on your bodyCoffee Scrub

It is recommended we drink fewer than four cups of coffee per day for optimal health. However, your skin can’t get enough of the benefits of coffee grounds, natural skincare and even the caffeine found in a coffee scrub.

Coffee grounds work as a mechanical exfoliant. This means instead of using chemicals or enzymes on your skin, you are enjoying the natural benefits of brushing away dead skin cells. Once your skin is exfoliated it can more easily take in nutrients from other skincare products, while expelling toxins.

The caffeine in a coffee scrub can also increase blood flow to your skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite for even skin tone. As the coffee scrub is stimulating your skin and blood vessels, it can also tighten your skin. This means if you suffer from puffiness, especially around your eyes, a coffee scrub can benefit you.

Coffee is also full of antioxidants to fight the free radicals which attack our healthy cells. Therefore, a coffee scrub will fight the signs of ageing in more ways than one, as antioxidants can also help repair sun damage and inflammation.



CoffeeThe effects of consuming coffee

You don’t have to switch all your caffeine to external use to benefit from glowing skin. However, it is important to be aware of some of the health risks of increased coffee consumption. Drinking coffee leads to heightened stress responses in your body. This, in turn, can lead to increased oil being released by your sebaceous gland, leading to an increased chance of breakouts. Coffee is also a dehydrating choice of drink, and the healthiest skin and bodies are well-hydrated inside and out. Plus, as coffee dehydrates your body, you're losing important nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

 

 

 

Therefore, make a coffee scrub part of your natural skincare routine and limit your intake, because coffee is better on your body than in your body.

COLD PROCESSED SOAPS
COLD PROCESSED SOAPS

June 26, 2022

One of the main benefits of cold process soap making is having complete control over ingredients. This is why we chose this process. Like all of our Scrubba products, we are very particular about what goes into them. Cold process soap has no added detergents, which strip the skin of its natural oils and can cause allergic reactions. Additional ingredients are also added to increase the skin loving benefits, like oats, kaolin and a bunch of other botanicals. Depending on the ingredients you use, cold process soap making typically yields a long-lasting bar of soap.

A LONG WEEKEND IN NEWCASTLE

We love our city and with the QT Newcastle opening on Thursday (they’ll be stocking some of our products!), we’ve been thinking about how amazing it is to have another beautiful hotel in the city. Then we were thinking about how great of a place for tourists our city is, with so many things to do. I’ve just had friends visit from out of state who were shocked with how many amazing restaurants, bars, beaches, and general cool things there were to do around Town. So I thought I’d put together some of my favourite places to go, things to eat, drink and see.
