Apart from baking soda, ground coffee must be one of the most effective scrubs out there. Here’s one that does the job wonderfully – Coffee Scrub by Frank Body. And coffee is one of a few beneficial ingredients in this scrub… There is cold-pressed skin-softening almond oil; rich in Vitamins A, E and D, and oleic acids which all moisturize the skin, soften its pigmentation and promote skin healing. The scrub also contains sea salt which is not only a natural antiseptic but also efficiently removes dry and flaky skin.
Other ingredients include Brown Sugar and Orange Oil. Brown Sugar is an excellent exfoliator in itself while Orange Oil (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) provides an instant relief from skin inflammation, it helps cure acne, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis and is wonderful for maintaining smooth, glowing skin. In addition to exfoliating, coffee also has several other useful properties. Coffee not only gently removes dead skin cells to reveal fresh and radiant looking skin underneath, but its main ingredient – caffeine – is also known as a great anti-cellulite agent. It improves metabolism and circulation thus reducing the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
Frank Body’s Coffee Scrub is suitable both for face and body. Use it on your face to eliminate blackheads and acne, as well as to lighten scarring and various other blemishes. Although it does contain oil, this scrub is not oily at all, and because of its coffee / orange mixture, it smells wonderful. Applying it can be a bit messy, so you are advised to use it in shower.
