Coffee Scrub Benefits?
Caffeine found in coffee scrubs improves blood circulation, may reduce the appearance of cellulite and gives the skin a more even tone look. When a coffee body scrub is applied, the skin absorbs the antioxidant properties to prevent premature aging.
After exfoliating on a regular basis, you will notice the skin is able to absorb moisture more effectively. This will stimulate blood flow, which can help diminish things like cellulite, stretch marks, and acne.
Coffee grounds make a great exfoliant. The grounds do not dissolve in water, which makes them good at scrubbing away dead skin cells. Caffeic acid, an antioxidant, may boost collagen levels and reduce the premature aging of cells.
Caffeic acid also has antimicrobial properties, which means that it may help protect the skin against germs.
Getting rid of puffy eyes
Coffee may benefit people with puffy, inflamed eyes.
Caffeine stimulates blood flow and widens, or dilates, the blood vessels. This increases blood flow, which can help the skin to naturally tighten. The result may be a reduction in the buildup of fluid under the eyes.
Coffee contains antioxidants, such as polyphenols. These may help to protect against ultraviolet (UV) rays and some signs of aging linked to sun exposure.
Coffee may also help reduce the appearance of cellulite on the skin.
The caffeine in coffee is an antioxidant which also aids in tightening and hydrating the skin. More supple skin lays flatter against the bumps of cellulite, making them less noticeable.A topical slimming product containing caffeine is effective at reducing stubborn cellulite in women.

The chlorogenic acids in coffee may also reduce inflammation and protect against some strains of bacteria.
