Awaken those senses with Bean Body’s Coffee Bean Scrub
Still haven’t worked out how to use the timer on the boiler yet? Yes, that’s me too!…so whilst I plan to get around to sorting that little issue out every morning I wake up to a cold bedroom (not ideal but sometimes I think that’s probably what makes me actually get my bootie out of bed, wack that kettle on and make that cup of coffee to kick-start my day before gearing myself up to enter the ever so cold bathroom – oh how I wish we had underfloor-heated bathroom tiles!), here’s a great beauty news bulletin for you. Now if you’re more of a help-me-I-need-a-double-espresso-in-the-mornings type of person, then I highly recommend introducing a coffee scrub into that morning shower routine! Not only does it smell amazing (if you’re a coffee lover) but it’s great at reviving and tackling problem areas of the skin that might be dry, have stretch marks or cellulite. Simply wet the skin, grab a handful of the scrub and massage in a circular motion on your problem areas, leave for a few minutes and rinse off! It’s ideal for getting that blood flowing first thing in the morning. However for maximum effect on problem areas, I suggest using this at night.
So what are the benefits of using the bean body coffee scrubs?
– due to its robust texture it’s great at improving your skin imperfections
– skin feels smoother and softer
The caffeine from the coffee grains aids the stimulation of blood flow to the skin which helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins and psoriasis.
The Demerra Sugar and Himalayan Salt is great at working the skin and exfoliating away any dead skin cells, acne, whiteheads, blackheads, breakouts and other skin blemishes.
The Coconut Oil hydrates and moisturises the skin and finally Cocoa and Vitamin E nourish and protect the skin.
After reading all of the above you’re probably wondering if the scrub can be used on your face. Well, you’re in luck as I’ve managed to get my hands on the latest addition to the range – due to launch in Holland and Barrat at the end of February – the Bean Body Facial Exfoliant! With finely ground coffee beans and coconut oil, this facial exfoliant provides all the benefits of the body scrub in a gentler format for the face, perfect for this time of year when your skin needs that little extra brightening help to give that sun kissed glow! Oh, and did I mention that it smells amazing!?
