Parenting Pointers: Coffee and Beauty

 


If you’re keeping your coffee in the cabinet and drinking it when you need your pick me up in the morning, you are doing coffee wrong! Now, the extra energy that comes from drinking it is a good enough selling point for me, but
have you heard how coffee can increase your natural beauty?

Nora Tobin, performance enhancement and executive coach, nutrition specialist and CEO of Nora’s Naturals coffee, elaborates on 3 beauty benefits of coffee.

“Quality coffee can play a role in cellular repair, collagen production and lowering inflammation. The B3 (niacin) vitamin and chlorogenic acid present in coffee can help reduce hyperpigmentation and can help decrease the appearance of sunspots, redness and fine lines. Utilizing coffee grounds in a body scrub can decrease the appearance of cellulite by dialing blood vessels beneath the skin.  A coffee scrub exfoliates dead skin cells, smoothing the skin and providing an even appearance. The polyphenols in coffee assist in cellular turnover and immune protection,” says Nora Tobin. 

Here are 3 lesser known ways that coffee can increase your beauty:

#1: Acne Treatment
Did you know that antioxidants, stimulants, and chlorogenic acids that are found in coffee have been linked to improving skin quality? By making a facial scrub with coffee, it can help unclog pores which have become irritated, leading to inflammation. 

#2: Decrease Dark Circles
Nobody wants to have dark circles under their eyes, coffee can potentially help. What you’ll need to do is mix one tablespoon of coffee powder with a teaspoon of honey. You’ll then add a few drops of vitamin E oil into the mix. Then apply this mixture under your eyes carefully and rinse after 15 minutes.

#3: Cellulite Reduction
Did you know that the caffeine within coffee has properties that can dilate the blood vessels, increasing blood flow and making skin return to a more youthful state? By applying a coffee scrub to the skin, it can result in skin that is glowing and radiant! Just like how the smell of coffee can wake up your mind  in the morning, a scrub can do the same for your body
