Our world has important problems to solve. In addition to the Corona crisis, we are threatened by a new economic crisis. Climate change and pollution are also major challenges that need to be addressed. In these dynamic times, everyone is talking about No Waste Generation, which reuses many materials. Upcycling is therefore a big topic that leaves no one indifferent. There are things all around us, leftover food, etc. that are too good to be thrown away. You can keep these for good reasons and use them for new purposes. Such an often underestimated raw material is undoubtedly the coffee grounds. The brewed coffee powder does not have to end up directly in the garbage because it still contains many nutrients. In the following we want to show its inexhaustible uses as a beauty product. Do you know how to make a coffee scrub yourself with the coffee grounds? We’ll show you how!
Anyone who makes their own coffee peeling always has a natural cosmetic product at hand.
The coffee grounds are a good source of valuable nutrients and tighten the skin
Upgrade instead of throwing away! More and more people who are concerned about the future of our planet live according to this motto. You’re always coming up with cool new things to do with coffee grounds. It is a good natural remedy against mosquitoes and other insects and you can use it to fertilize your balcony and garden flowers. The methods of application are numerous, because the coffee grounds are still rich in nutrients. Regardless of whether the brewed coffee powder comes from the coffee machine or from the coffee machine, it still contains a lot of caffeine. This is precisely what is decisive for its reuse! As we all know from our own experience, we feel much more alert and energetic after every cup of coffee. Caffeine not only invigorates body and mind, it is also important in the beauty industry. The caffeine contained in the coffee scrub can make your skin more beautiful and radiant. When applied externally, it stimulates blood circulation and noticeably tightens the skin.
If you make and use your coffee peeling yourself, you will soon feel the difference in your skin.
The grainy substance of the coffee grounds brings a quick visual effect. The coffee peeling frees the skin from dead skin cells, it looks fresher and absorbs the care cream better. Your complexion looks rosy and healthy. Coffee scrub cleans the skin down to the pores and makes it look smoother and more beautiful. In addition to its blood circulation-promoting properties, the caffeine it contains also has other advantages. For example, you can use it to successfully eliminate dark circles under your eyes and have firm, fresh and radiant facial skin. In addition, it leads to the fight against cellulite.
But to get the right coffee mass for your coffee peeling, you only have to use dry coffee grounds. You probably already know that damp coffee grounds quickly lead to mold growth. That’s why our tip is this: dry the coffee powder before using it as a beauty product!
Caution! Damp coffee grounds quickly cause mold to form!
A wonder drug from the kitchen!
