Coffee Grounds Skin Care Benefits

I always envy my husband when he makes a cup of freshly brewed coffee. I am not a coffee drinker and the aroma sometimes tempts me to have a sip. But I know too well that the effect of a cup coffee on my body is something I will regret for two days so... NO. It doesn't mean though that I can't enjoy coffee. I don't drink it. I rub it on my skin.

Leftover coffee grounds can benefit your skin. They have antimicrobial qualities and are also a good source of antioxidants. These coffee grounds also makes your skin feel tight and smooth.  I use them to exfoliate my skin to remove dead skin cells. 

In the shower, I massage the coffee grounds all over my body but I pay extra attention to my underarms, elbows and knees. If you have olive oil, you can add a teaspoon to the coffee grounds for the soft, smooth feel after washing off. Make sure you don't scrub your skin aggressively.

My skin feels soft, smooth and smells great after bath. This is the kind of coffee fix I need that's good for me.
