Do Coffee Scrubs Help Reduce Cellulite?
Coffee is a wonderful pick-me-up! Caffeine can improve your mood and help you feel more productive and energetic.
It turns out, your morning cup of joe can also benefit your skin. Yes, that’s right, sipping your morning Starbucks not only gives your brain an energy boost but your skin too!
Coffee is prized for its antioxidant and caffeine content and those properties may help reduce the appearance of cellulite when applied topically to the skin. The phenols (antioxidants) in coffee are thought to reduce free-radicals in the body.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite (dimples in the skin that affect most women and some men) is very difficult to get rid of and is most prevalent in areas where fatty tissues are present. It happens when that fatty tissue under the skin presses against other tissues closer to the skin’s surface.
How can Coffee Help?
Caffeine from the coffee can help dilate blood vessels and improve circulation. This can help tighten the skin, eliminate excess water, and reduce the appearance of skin dimples for some people.
Another benefit of coffee is the exfoliation from the coffee grounds. The coffee grounds can help remove dead skin cells and help smooth and even the skin. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, the massaging action can also help tighten skin and assist with lymphatic drainage to improve cellulite appearance. Consistency combined with a good moisturizer, and staying hydrated can help over time.
