How to Brighten Up your Skin with Coffee!

Coffee and Skin Care can go together!Model with beautiful skin as a result of coffee scrubs to brighten the skin

Coffee is our guilty pleasure! Aside from keeping us energized, coffee also lightens up on skin by getting rid of hyper pigmentation.

Miami is one of the worlds top destination for a reason. The beautiful sand, turquoise water and sunshine draws in tourists from around the world. But those of us who live here are exposed to the harsh UVA and UVB sun rays on a daily basis. This contact exposure carries a long term damaging effect of causing those awful pigmentation spots. Did you know that sometimes sun damage can take for up to twenty years to show on the surface of the skin? That is the best case scenario. For those of us who are getting sun exposure on a daily basis, it may be as fast as a couple of months! Lets be honest, sun damage and hyper pigmentation makes you look older. Uneven skin tone is also the the number one reason that women wear foundation.

Avalon Medical Spa offers IPL Photofacial treatments that work wonders on getting rid of sun damage and rejuvenating the skin. But there is also something more that you can do incorporate into your daily routine to help you not only maintain the results but combat hyper pigmentation at home.

Coffee has amazing anti oxidant properties that will help you brighten up your skin inside and out! Caffeine has anti inflammatory properties and can be used as a face and body scrub at home! The antioxidants in the coffee act as both a physical chemical exfoliatant. It will help brighten, tighten the skin and reduce clogged pores. Caffeine also helps increase the skin natural protective barrier.

To make an at home facial scrub is fairly easy and cost effective. Add warm water to a bowl, coffee grounds and some epsom salts. The coffee grounds will sink to the bottom. Wash your skin with water from the bowl first and then take the coffee grounds and gently massage on your skin. This can be done once a week.

Grounded coffee beans also help eliminate the dark purple circles around the eyes that caused by lack of sleep, stress and vascular issues. Caffeine acts a vasodilator, meaning that it expands the blood vessels by relaxing the smooth muscles within the vessel walls. This will also reduce the puffiness under the eyes as well. The area under our eyes is not very well drained by our lymphatic system and caffeine helps by removing the unwanted water.

Fine ground coffee beans can be mixed together with eye creams and applied daily around the eyes.The effect caffeine has on the blood vessels is not permeant and can subside in as little as 30 minutes. This time increases with prolonged continuous use. The same principle can be applied to intimate bleaching for the vaginal, labia and anus regions.
