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.

VITAMIN E - THE ORIGINAL 'MUST HAVE' SKIN CARE INGREDIENT
VITAMIN E - THE ORIGINAL 'MUST HAVE' SKIN CARE INGREDIENT

January 13, 2022

For first blog for the year and I wanted to keep it fun and summer themed. As the weather has shockingly been turning it on here in Newy over the last week (La Niña who???), indoor activities are out and sunshine, and outdoor fun and in!

However as much as we try our hardest to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP! We can never be too careful with our skin, especially here in Australia with that bloody great big hole in the ozone layer.

Enter Vitamin E.

 

Vitamin E is a tried and true ingredient in body and face moisturisers and there’s a good reason for that. It works. We traditionally know vitamin E as a treatment for scars, skin discolourations and anti-aging but did you know that it helps prevent and heal sunburn? Here are some Vitamin E tidbits to solidify why it really is the queen of ‘must have’ skin care ingredients.

It’s been a wild ride ol’ 2021. Full of cliches “It can’t be as bad as last year”, “Such a rollercoaster” and “we’re all in this together” plus a hundred more to that effect. I don’t want to lie and say this was a great year but instead of dwelling on the lows, I wanted to remember and celebrate the highs.
