5 Amazing Ways Coffee Butter Benefits Your Skin
Posted by Susan Storm on July 11, 2016
Mmm...we all love the smell of fresh coffee simmering in the pot on a Saturday morning (or any morning for that matter!). But did you know that coffee can not only help you wake up but it can improve your skin as well? So should you just douse your skin in boiling hot coffee? No way! Let's take a look at what makes coffee so good for your skin, and HOW you should use it!
#1 - Coffee Butter Is Anti-Aging
Coffee butter has a naturally high caffeine content. This caffeine helps to tighten your skin, making it look firmer and younger.
#2 - Coffee Butter Reduces Acne
Coffee butter has the same pH balance as your skin (4.5). This is one of the reasons that it helps to protect your skin against blemishes and acne.
#3 - Coffee Butter Moisturizes Your Skin
Coffee butter is high in polyphenols - compounds that help your skin to retain moisture and softness.
#4 - Coffee Butter Soothes Irritated Skin
Coffee butter is rich in antioxidants that help to soothe rashy, dry, or irritated skin.
#5 - Coffee Butter Helps to Improve Skin Tone
Coffee butter is high in phytosterols - compounds that help to reduce discoloration and inflammation of the skin caused by hyperpigmentation or rosacea.
How Should I Apply Coffee Butter?
Coffee butter can be applied to the skin directly in small amounts, or you can use it in a moisturizer and massage it into the skin that way. Here at Afrikan Republic we offer pure coffee butter or coffee butter moisturizers.
