The main chemical in coffee
is caffeine, a natural antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralise the effects of free radicals, which can damage the inner layer of skin. This damage is often reflected in age spots and wrinkles. When a coffee body scrub
is applied, the skin absorbs this antioxidants and can help prevent premature aging.
Caffeine is also a vasodilator, which means it constricts blood vessels in the skin. This action works to make blood vessels tighter and firmer very quickly, which is reflected in your skin texture. The use of a coffee body scrub
increases blood flow and reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretchmarks, helps tighten the skin and can also help diminish the appearance of scars.
