Coffee does more than perk up your mornings. It can be a wonderful ingredient for an effective beauty regimen, too. Here are 4 ways you can use coffee grounds to make you more beautiful.
- Use it as an invigorating scrub. Create a paste by mixing 4 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil with 6 tablespoons of fine coffee grounds. Rub the mixture in a circular motion. This should slough off dead skin cells.
- Use it as a residue remover on your scalp. This works like a body scrub. The only difference is that you will apply it on your scalp. You can perform this routine once every two weeks. Exfoliate your scalp right before you shampoo.
- Use it as a hand deodorizer. You can rub coffee grounds on your hands to keep it smelling fresh. An alternative will be to make your own coffee soap. Mix coffee grounds with glycerin soap, powdered milk, and vanilla. Heat in a double boiler, pour into a muffin tin, and let it cool.
- Use it during perfume testing. Sniffing different scents can confuse your nose. Sniff coffee grounds in between scents to ‘reset’ your sense of smell. You will be able to appreciate the scent of the different perfumes.
