Starting the day with a hot cup of coffee is one of my favorite rituals. But if you're limiting yourself to just drinking that cup of Joe, you're missing out on some of coffee's biggest beauty benefits. Coffee scrubs, face masks and soap are all easy to make and a great way to make use of fresh grounds.
Not only do coffee grounds make for inexpensive exfoliation, but the caffeine in fresh grounds provides other skin benefits. Whether you use a coffee scrub or a coffee-infused lotion, the caffeine stimulates circulation and acts as a temporary diuretic, making it one of the best home remedies for cellulite. Coffee also be used on the face. It will cleanse and exfoliate, firm and tighten skin, and even give you an energy boost!
