The abuelita's trick about coffee and its usage has a lot of history behind it. Yes, coffee may be the answer to all of your problems. (maybe!)
You may be thinking: I already drink coffee 24/7 in order to keep my life on deck, what do you mean? What other problems can coffee help with?
Well ladies for those who aren’t aware, fresh coffee can be made into a natural body scrub combining with organic oils, that creates a body scrub that contains many enzymes that come from its oily nutrients that we almost believe it can fix everything. So yes Coffee helps with exfoliation, moisturizing, and soothing.
Here are a few examples:
- Have a scratch or itch on your back? Apply some coffee scrub that has honey and it will act as an exfoliator on your back by soothing that itch.
- Did your skin have a breakout after that yummy gourmet hamburger gourmet that you ate at the festival in downtown? A coffee body scrub that contains sea salt can help hydrate and soothe the skin. And the best part is while you are worrying about the rash or the breakout, the natural caffeine is working its magic as it sits on the surface of your skin. The coffee acts as a diuretic, which means it helps to flush out toxins and reduce redness and irritation. In addition, coffee provides an anti-aging benefit which consists of a process that engages in the stimulation of the blood flow to the skin. This extra blood flow produces a big chunk of collagen to help reduce wrinkles, beauty marks, and aging spots.
- Now, here comes the abuelita fact: we all have stretch marks and some of us are not happy about them. Stretch marks come naturally for women and men when there is a drastic change of size in a certain body part, and skin reacts by stretching and itching. Caffeine has natural anti-inflammatory properties which help to calm swelling and redness from the primary stretch marks. And it doesn’t stop there ladies! If applied regularly, they will eventually disappear combined with good physical exercise.
As women, sometimes we become paranoid with stretch marks. However, they don’t come alone to this party! *Drum roll* Yes! We have to also watch out for cellulite! Again, nothing that natural caffeine cannot help fix, though. Caffeine has the ability to draw water out of fatty cells, diminishing the appearance of cellulite.
These examples may sound unrealistic but it is true. These are basic abuelita’s tricks. They are natural, they are simple, and they work with time.
And remember ladies, what comes naturally to our bodies, nature can fix it. It is simple as that. Not only can you drink your coffee, but you can also absorb it. So be natural. Feel natural.
Best regards, and wish you all beautiful skin.
