One of the latest hot trends in skincare and beauty is the idea of clean products and, given the science behind the benefits of using coffee in skincare, the concept of coffee in clean beauty. Put simply, this concept means that the products you use are often organic, natural and devoid of man-made/synthetic chemicals, fragrances, and other potentially toxic items.
As an all-natural plant-based product, coffee certainly can fit the bill as part of your clean beauty lineup. And what makes it even more enticing is the fact that coffee has shown a number of surefire benefits for your skin in recent years. If you choose products that use (organic) Coffea Arabica as an ingredient, you can derive even more benefits. This is an organic green coffee seed extract, so you know it fits well within the category of “clean.” Plus, it has more antioxidant potential than almost any other variety of coffee.
We spoke with the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics to see why you want coffee in clean beauty products as part of your routine.
Coffee in Clean Beauty Products – What You Need to Know
One reason to consider coffee as part of your clean beauty routine is for exfoliating. The texture of natural coffee grounds is just about perfect for exfoliation, removing dead skin cells and keeping you looking fresh and youthful.
You can find coffee in several Callyssee Cosmetics body and face scrubs, as it’s an ingredient suitable for all types of skin. Try the Buffing Beans Coffee Scrub from Callyssee in Vanilla Bean and Cocoa. Both are suitable for sensitive skin and won’t clog pores, so they’re perfect to exfoliate your skin from face to toes! We love it after hitting the beach and to treat dry patches in winter.
The antioxidants in coffee have been shown in many studies to reverse the signs of aging, both preventing wrinkles and repairing damage from wrinkles when they occur. Coffee can also firm and tone the skin, as well as prevent damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays (but we always always advocate wearing sunscreen daily even if you were to bathe in coffee daily! SPF is vital to skin healthy year-round).
#3 All-Around Cleaning
When used in facial cleansers and washes, coffee has natural chlorogenic and ferulic acids that detoxify the skin. The result if almost like a “mini chemical peel” that removes harmful dirts and oils and reduces the chances of breakouts and blemishes down the road. Plus, as mentioned above, coffee helps with a litany of skin concerns. It’s a superfood for the skin so you can’t go wrong 🙂
