While whole world knows coffee energizes, it’s a recent find that it’s beneficial in skincare and haircare. Caffeic acid which is an antioxidant present in coffee helps boost collagen and reduce signs of ageing.
The antimicrobial properties also helps against germ protect.
Caffeine is great to reduce puffiness in eyes. Stimulating the blood flow caffeine helps to tighten skin naturally and also reduces fluid retention under the eyes.
Applying coffee to hair helps rebalance the ph levels of the hair. It will also help wash away dead skin cells from your scalp.

Coffee is one of my favorite skin care ingredient. I have first used coffee in the form of a face and body scrub when I first collaborated with an organic brand. And even since, it has been added to my skin care basket. But never used it for hair.
I love the smell of coffee and it feels so good to use Mccafiene products as the coffee smell lingers on the skin even after washing it off
I add coffee in my heena pack but other than that I did not try any coffee skin care products. Thanks for sharing these amazing list. Will explore more about it from my side.
