Are you one of the 62% of Americans drinking coffee on a daily basis, according to the National Coffee Association? You’ve probably heard some of the touted health benefits of drinking coffee such as potential to lower risk of Type II Diabetes, protect from Alzheimer’s, protect liver, lower risk of some cancers and more. Did you know using caffeine infused skincare products protects and restores too? Here are three reasons to add a shot of coffee to your daily skincare routine.

1. Anti-Aging

Antioxidants counter the effects of premature aging by defending from oxidation. Green coffee beans provide a significant amount of polyphenols including caffeic, ferulic and chlorogenic acids and are considered one of the richest sources of antioxidants in the west. Applying coffee to your skin protects skin from sun damage and may assist in repairing UV damage.

2. Stimulate Blood FlowCoffee Benefits1.jpg

Caffeine increases microcirculation, the circulation in the smallest blood vessels, which aids in transporting nutrients to cells. It is believed the combination of antioxidants and increased circulation contributes to the temporary reduction of cellulite, tighter pores and reduced puffiness. Increased circulation also effectively reduces inflammation and the appearance of fine lines and redness. To maximize the benefits of increased circulation, massage Latte Bar Soap or Espresso Body Scrub in a circular motion to legs, torso and arms.

3. Exfoliate

Exfoliation is one of the easiest steps to slough off dry skin, even out skin tone and reveal a glowing complexion; in addition, your skin will feel refreshed. Coffee grounds do the smoothing while the natural acid content in the coffee brightens. Reenergize sore, tired feet and legs by massaging in the Espresso Body Scrub.

Lemongrass Spa’s gourmet coffee menu includes Espresso Body Scrub, Cappuccino Vegan Lip Balm and Latte Hand & Body Bar Soap. Small amounts of caffeine can be absorbed through the skin. If you have sensitivity to caffeine, you may want to consult a medical professional before using caffeine infused products.

Espresso Body Scrub

Handcrafted with 100% organic ingredients including fair trade coffee grounds, sugar and turmeric. Our exclusive antioxidant coffee body scrub exfoliates the skin, helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, break down inflammation and moisturizes with organic shea butter. We infused calendula and rosemary leaf for powerful antioxidant properties and dandelion root for reducing toxins and tightening pores. Due to the coarse coffee grounds, we do not recommend using Espresso Body Scrub on your face. For facial exfoliation try the Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Polish or Pomegranate Facial Polish.

Cappuccino Vegan Lip Balm

Give your lips a sweet treat with caffeine-infused organic lip balm featuring cocoa, coffee extract and soothing shea butter. The vegan sunflower and candelilla wax blend is poured into vintage slider tins for soft, youthful lips. Safe for kids of all ages.

Latte Hand & Body Bar Soap

Organic French roast coffee grounds, topped with the aroma of creamy froth and drizzled caramel, swirled into our handcrafted, moisturizing bar soap. Use from head to toe to energize your senses.

Lather, scrub and rinse your way to glowing skin with our caffeine infused treats for your skin.
