We all know what’s great for our skin. Vitamins, essential oils, antioxidants. They help moisturise, exfoliate and protect our skin from sun damage. No question about it. However, there are some ingredients that are not often recognized as the miracle workers that they are.
Another reason for more coffee. If you’re not sure why Coffee Beans are so amazing for your skin, then let’s break it down for you. Coffee Beans are a natural scrub. They remove dead skin cells to reveal soft, fresh skin. The caffeine included in Coffee Beans help firm untoned skin, removing signs of stretch marks, cellulite, eczema, and acne. Scrubbing Coffee Beans on your body helps the circulation of blood, giving you a bright and healthy complexion. Coffee Beans are also high in antioxidants that help protect you glowing skin from sun damage, reducing the likeliness of fine lines and wrinkles.
Even more, a reason to have a sweet tooth. Sugar is often included in body scrubs for its natural remedies. First of all, it helps draw in moisture from the environment. This means sugar helps retain moisture and keep your skin hydrated. Sugar is also a source of glycolic acid, which breaks down the “glue” that binds your skin together. This will encourage the production of fresher, younger-looking skin. Last, but not least, sugar is an effective, yet careful exfoliator. Due to its tiny particles, sugar scrubs away dead skin cells without causing tears and other damage.
The perfect excuse to be super salty. Like sugar, salt is a highly effective exfoliator that won’t leave any scratches and softens tough skin. It also helps detoxify your skin by washing away any dead skin cells. But there’s more. Salt helps unclogs pores of dirt and excess oils, as well as balancing oil production so your skin won’t break out any signs of acne or eczema. In all, the salt will help tone your skin, make it soft and keep it hydrated.
Oatmeal isn’t just a healthy breakfast, it’s also a super healer. This is great for anyone with sensitive skin. Oats are a natural cleanser. They contain compounds called saponins, which help unclog dirt and oil from pores. Oats can also absorb excess oils and reduce acne on your skin. They are also strong in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help red, itchy and irritated skin. Oats are also useful moisturisers by penetrating your skin to keep it nice and soft. They can also improve your complexion by making your skin clear and bright.
Bamboo Powder is mostly seen in facial scrubs and masks. This is due to its cleansing and exfoliating properties. Bamboo Powder is rich in minerals and silica, and because of its tiny particles, it is the perfect exfoliator for sensitive skin. This means that dead skin cells will be buffed away without leaving any micro tears. Bamboo Powder also helps cleanse your face from excess oils, removing toxins such as bacteria. Say hello to soft, clear, carefree skin!
