Coffee in your daily skin care

The first ever post media on OiB a few months back was a cup of coffee. This one. 10 months later, it is with no surprise that coffee becomes an actual topic, not just a cute photo. I love coffee. I always knew it was a plus (not a minus) in any beauty regimen. I already mentioned it here back in July, and even here earlier this year. I though today is the day to get messy. No more sweet talk, ditch the chocoloate and honey. Today, we go raw. Starting by a killer question (suspense mood on):

 ⇒ How to incorporate Coffee in our daily skincare routine? 

You know you can incorporate coffee into your daily skin care , well no right? Even though it’s a widely consumed beverage but it has also got other not so popular benefits. Today we are going to discuss those.

You have heard it right!!! You can use coffee for your daily skin care routine. This is because coffee has got certain essential agents which are beneficial for your skin like the antioxidants, it prevents the aging of your skin. Quite shocking right? Something like coffee which you use to energize yourself in the morning can be used on your skin? To be frank, I was shocked too.

Enough of the blabbering, so let’s see why you should use coffee as your daily skin care product:

Prevents premature aging

Coffee has a rich quantity of anti-oxidants when you consume coffee you take those antioxidants inside, these are the agents that stunt your skin from aging. Antioxidants are greatly natural remedies to combat wrinkles and dryness.

One of the basics of skincare is removing the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This keeps your skin healthy and fresh. In order to remove dead skin, you need a substance that is rough and strong but not so strong that they may ruin your skin. This is where coffee comes into play, it is a best natural exfoliation agent. It can be used as a natural scrub to get rid of dead skin cells, hence maintain a smooth and soft skin.

Reduces soreness of the skin

Strong antioxidants in coffee have got many anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces puffiness and soreness of the skin. It is the best alternative to harmful cosmetics. Later I’ll tell you how to make a DIY coffee mask help to reduce the soreness of the skin.

Oily Skin and Acne Treatment with Cypress Oil

What if I told you that there is completely natural and 100% organic way of controlling your acne breakout? If you’re surprised don’t be because today on OiB I will tell you about the wonderful gift of nature known as Cypress Oil from which you can make a DIY PORE REFINING  and a lovely BALANCING FACIAL TONER.

Cypress Oil works by enhancing the regeneration of cells which makes it effective in controlling the oil on the skin and preventing further acne or blackhead from breaking out.

Skin Care Directions:
The process to make your very own Balancing Facial Toner is quite an easy one and if you adhere strictly to these steps you should have no problem.

1. First of all, grab a coloured glass atomizer and fill it with 4 ounces of distilled water.

2. Next up, drop around 15-30 drops of pure Cypress oil in the atomizer bottle.

3. Wait for 2-3 hours to ensure that the Cypress oil is completely synced with the distilled water.

Application:
For applying this toner you simply need to spray or pour the toner on a round cotton bud until it saturates the toner. After that simply massage it on your face or affected area in circular motions. Now just wait for 5- minutes so that your face is completely dried.

For a Satisfying Blend:
If you want to enhance the effectiveness of your DIY balancing toner then I would suggest that you blend lavender or lemon oil with the mixture.

Important Note:
I would always advice you to never compromise on quality by opting for cheap and artificial copies of essential oils. They are strictly not recommended for therapeutic usage. I would
recommend that you only buy high quality and 100% organic essential oils that have been thoroughly tested and free from any chemicals and pesticides.

Conclusion:

You should keep in mind that aroma therapy should be used to complement your treatment and in no way should be an alternate to contemporary medicine. Never self diagnose your problem and always consult your local GP before trying anything new. However, this Cypress Oil balancing toner has been personally tried and tested by me with full effect and I hope you guys will be able to enjoy the same benefits. I hope you liked this DIY recipe and do leave your valuable feedback on the comments section.
