Coffee grounds – fantastic skin treatment

Coffee has proven to have wonderful effects on the skin. It contains powerful anti-oxidant agents, protecting the skin against free radicals and reducing the risk of skin cancer.

Coffee tightens pores and removes dead skin cells, making the skin look younger. It also displays anti-wrinkle properties. Because of all these benefits, coffee has become a common ingredient of numerous luxury beauty products and spa therapies, especially anti-aging and anti-cellulite ones.

Many coffee drinkers do not realize that used coffee grounds contain the same anti-oxidant and other beneficial compounds that are used in luxury skincare products. Used coffee grounds and are just too good to be wasted! They cost nothing and can improve your skin appearance just after a single use!

However, the level of anti-oxidants in used coffee grounds depends on the way coffee is brewed. The best coffee grounds are those collected at the bottom of the cup, but those left in a coffee-making machine can also do the job. According to scientists from the University of Navarra in Spain, plunger, filter, and espresso coffeemakers left the highest levels of antioxidants in coffee grounds, while mocha-style coffee makers − the lowest.

Coffee grounds can be used for face and body peeling and for hair treatment. Just choose your favorite recipe and enjoy your ‘new’ healthy-looking skin and shiny hair!
