It’s not just for breakfast anymore! Coffee is more than just a quick pick me up especially our Coffee Bar. Researchers and skin care practitioners alike have found this favorite of all beans can be beneficial in a variety of forms beyond what we traditionally think of as a morning cup! Consumed in a beverage or applied to the skin via soap, lotion, scrub or mask − coffee has numerous benefits for the skin including a valuable source of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Anti-aging: Coffee reduce dryness, dull appearance and puffiness associated with aging. By encouraging additional blood flow to the skin’s surface, coffee beans can restore skin’s luminescence and provide a more youthful appearance! Calming: Anti-oxidants in coffee beans provide a soothing effect and sense of calm and quiet when applied directly to the skin via a soap bar. Exfolliant and Cellulite Reduction: When added to a soap bar, finely ground coffee beans can rid the skin of dry, dead skin cells and restore it to a more radiant and smooth appearance. Coffee, by stimulating blood flow, improves circulation and consequently the appearance of the skin! Cancer Combatant: Roasted coffee beans are rich in Vitamin B3, also known as Niacin. B3 is thought to fight nonmelanoma skin cancers and other growths on the skin. Utilizing a coffee cleansing bar supports this cancer fighting behavior. Acne and Antibacterial: The antioxidants, stimulants, and chlorogenic acids found in coffee make it an effective acne-fighting agent. Acne can be exacerbated by excessive oil, dead skin cells and topically applied products that clog the pores. Gently scrubbing the face with a coffee bar soap can help to clear away dead skin cells, unclog the pores and fight bacteria. Dark Circles: Because of the ability to dilate, or widen, the blood vessels under the skin’s surface, a coffee based soap can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes for a more illuminated appearance. Sunburn: Coffee beans have natural anti-inflammatory properties. When the skin is subjected to too much sun and a sun burn results, a coffee soap when used very cautiously and gently on a sun burn can reduce inflammation and sooth the skin. Rosacea: This very common skin condition is thought to impact 10% of the population. Rosacea flare ups are often caused by bacteria and inflammation. Because of the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of coffee beans, using a coffee based soap in a daily skin routine can reduce the number of occurrences. COCONUT SHREDS: The fats in the coconut shreds minimize the pores that attract dirt and bacteria and prevent skin from getting damaged. In fact, the toning property of coconut helps in preventing acne by minimizing the pores of the skin, leaving it glowing. It is also used as a natural moisturizer.
