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.

Makes your skin smooth and soft

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.

Some DIY coffee recipes

This wonder oil has the ability to enhance hair growth, relieve pain and improve your mental health. Often, Rosemary is also used to treat liver, gallbladder and heart problems. Also, if you’re suffering from memory loss, high bp or just plain old headache then you should use this natural oil.

Topical Application
As mentioned earlier, I will only focus on the medical uses of Rosemary Oil and one of the most common and tested use is the topical application of Rosemary oil. This organic and natural oil is very effective in dealing with a variety of pains such as arthritis, rheumatism and headaches. All you have to do is to gently massage your affected area. Because of the anti-inflammatory properties of this oil it is great in treating pain caused by sprains or joint aches. Furthermore, the oil is pretty effective in quickening up the process of healing open wounds and cuts simply

They say that olfactory cues are very important in determining what mood you’re in and your overall state of mind. This is where the great aroma of Rosemary kicks in because its pleasant smell calms your mind, clears your respiratory track and keeps your mentally fresh. That’s why, you’ll see the presence of Rosemary in many perfumes, air fresheners, candles, cosmetics and bath oil. Most people will mix rosemary oil with water to remove unpleasant odor from rooms, furniture. Another good property of this oil is that it will blend well with lavender, lemongrass
and other essential oils which make it much more effective.

Enhances Mental Activity
As we mentioned earlier, Rosemary oil has pleasant aroma which serves as an excellent tonic for the brain and nerves. This is very popular among colleges student who use to relieve themselves of pre-exam tension and helps them to focus on studies only. That’s why I would recommend that whenever you are mentally tired or depressed then simply inhale a little rosemary oil instead of cigarette and you’ll see wonders happen.

Respiratory Uses
Common respiratory issues such as cough, cold, flu, throat congestions or sore throat can be easily cured if you use Rosemary oil. Sufferers of bronchial asthma are also recommended Rosemary in some treatment programs.

Enhancing Hair Growth
Many herbal shampoos and lotions use Rosemary as it increases blood flow which in turn stimulates the hair follicles and helps in making your grow longer and stronger. Furthermore, if your hair is becoming gray before time or if you’re suffering from early hair loss then Rosemary oil should be used. Therefore, if you’re starting to experience male baldness then you better start using Rosewood oil.
