We all love a good cup of coffee. But our skin? Not so much. The tasty beverage is dehydrating, and no one wants dehydrated skin, which leads to inflammation and loss of collagen. But while we’re gradually reducing our caffeine intake by the mug, we’re increasing it on our skin. It’s an antioxidant! It’s gently exfoliating! It tightens up the skin! There are plenty of ways to improve your skin with coffee, and these are five of our favorite recipes at the moment:
Invigorate the body and mind with perfectly portioned face and body bars. They will exfoliate your skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and leave your skin feeling firmer.
