Coffee Bean Exfoliant Powder
It's no secret that coffee is one of the worlds favourite things to drink because of its energising and mood boosting effects, and lets not forget its oh-so-delicious aroma, but did you know that when applied topically, coffee has an abundance of skin (and even hair) benefits too?
Coffee beans are packed full of antioxidants which help to protect your skin from free radicals and keep your skin looking youthful. Due to the caffeine content, coffee can help to increase blood flow and circulation, which means your cells are getting more nutrients and oxygen - this, in-turn, helps to leave your skin glowing and radiant, and can assist in reducing the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
When used as a body scrub, Coffee is also known to help promote collagen production, reduce inflammation and swelling, tighten and tone skin and pores, exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.
AWO's Coffee Bean Exfoliant Powder is ideal for making your own body scrubs, face masks, hair treatments, soaps and more!
Easy DIY Body Scrub:For a simple and effective body scrub, mix 1/2 a cup of Coffee Bean Exfoliant Powder, with 2 tbsp to 1/4 cup of carrier oil (such as fractionated coconut oil or almond oil - adjust the amount depending how 'wet' you like the mixture) and 2-3 drops of your favourite Essential Oil (our favourites are Lime, Pink Grapefruit and Mandarin!). If you keep your body scrub mixture stored completely dry, free from any water or moisture, this will last for around 6-12 months.In the shower (or bath), apply to your wet skin and gently scrub in circular motions for a few minutes - you can spend longer on areas that want some extra attention (such as cellulite, scars and stretchmarks). Rinse off completely.You can also add other ingredients such as French clays, fine himalayan salt, vitamin E, castor sugar, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, shea butter, green tea, and the list goes on! Try experimenting with different combinations to suit your skin and mood!
