In need of a beauty boost? Try a facial, mask, or spa treatment infused with a shot of java. Aside from waking you up in the morning, coffee's caffeinated elixir works just as energetically to get skin into tip-top shape. This Sunday marks National Coffee Day, so what better way to celebrate with your favorite latte and a little skin care pampering! Click through the slideshow to see which treatment works for you.
Just what makes coffee so fabulous? Ask any cellulite, slimming, or skincare cream. Many beauty products often contain caffeine, as it is a great way to combat water retention and promote weight loss. When the stimulants found in coffee grounds are applied to skin, they trigger it to contract and tighten, perfect for facials, masks, creams, and anti-aging serums as well. Redness, discoloration, and even dark spots also react kindly to a little java.
And brunettes rejoice, as you would be happy to know pouring 2 cups of espresso onto hair can help enhance and maintain your shade in between salon sessions. You'll never look at your Starbucks the same. Aside from tall, grande, and venti, check out these three caffeine filled options you can also try:
For a DIY at-home treatment, create a coffee facial. Mix half a cup of organic coffee grounds with a cup of milk, a small dose of lemon juice, and honey. The delicious concoction will create a pasted perfect for the face. Apply and leave on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off.
