When you’re leading a busy lifestyle with late nights, early mornings, too much screen time and erratic sleeping and snacking habits, it doesn’t just burn you out mentally and physically – it can lead to tired-looking skin too. Most of us know coffee as the drink that helps boost energy and concentration. But many people are now adding the ingredient to their skincare routine as well. Discover the benefits of coffee for your skin and lifestyle.
WHAT IS COFFEE?
Coffee is produced from the seed of the fruit that grows on coffee plants. These seeds, usually called ‘beans’, are then roasted and ground to produce the small granules that we use in our favourite hot drink. It’s the caffeine content in coffee that has a stimulating effect on the body and helps to boost our energy and concentration levels. Coffee is also known as a rich source of powerful antioxidants.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COFFEE?
Renowned for its antioxidant and caffeine content, coffee has some great benefits for your skin and lifestyle.
Coffee is an increasingly popular ingredient for face and body exfoliators. The bean particles are a gentle but effective way to buff away dead skin cells and impurities, which can leave skin feeling smoother and looking more refined.
Adding coffee to your skincare routine may also help your skin look more radiant. Just as coffee perks you up in the morning, using a coffee face mask is thought to improve blood circulation and reveal skin that looks more radiant and awakened.

Give your skin an energy kick with our new vegan Nicaraguan Coffee Intense Awakening Mask, the latest addition to our face masks range.
