What's the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

For many people it's getting their daily cup of coffee. With more than 2.25 billion cups of coffee consumed every day worldwide, coffee is clearly an essential part of most people's day!

However coffee is no longer just for drinking.

In honor of National Coffee day, we will be discussing coffee scrubs! If you want to know why you should be lathering yourself in coffee, keep on reading.

What they are

Coffee scrubs are exactly what they sound like, coffee grains that you can scrub on your body!  The ingredients generally stick to coffee beans and some sort of vitamin oil, however we love BEANBODY coffee scrub because of its amazing formula.

The ingredients are all organic, paraben free, cruelty-free and completely vegan. The ingredients do vary by scent, but generally contain a blend of coffee beans, organic coconut oil, Himalayan pink rock salt, demerara sugar, vitamin E oil and organic cacao.

How to use them

These scrubs are fairly simple to use. The first step would be to shower. Once your body is wet, take a handful of the scrub and rub it all over your body, massaging it in circular motions. Once this scrub is all over your body, let it dry for 5 minutes and then rinse it off. You can use these scrubs up to 2 times per week.

Why we LOVE them

Now you might be thinking, why would I waste my precious coffee on my body when I could be drinking it? Well hear me out, because after you read about these benefits you'll want to order some of these scrubs ASAP!

1. Reduce the appearance of cellulite:

Our prayers have been answered! No matter how clean you eat or how much you workout, sometimes that stubborn cellulite just won't go away. That being said, it's interesting to learn that the caffeine from the coffee bean stimulates blood flow. This can help diminish the look of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots and even varicose veins. Coffee is seriously a miracle worker!

2.Exfoliate skin:

The sugar, salt and coffee beans are also a great way to exfoliate the skin. The coarseness of these ingredients remove dead skin cells and also help with acne, whiteheads, blackheads and  breakouts. It's a great a natural way to clean your skin and help clear up any imperfections.

3.Hydrate & moisturize:

The coconut oil in BEANBODY helps to re-hydrate and moisturize your skin. A lot of products meant to exfoliate can dry out your skin because of the coarse nature of the ingredients, so the added coconut oil is amazing! I would still recommend using a moisturizer after a coffee scrub, but these hydrating qualities are perfect as we transition to colder weather for Fall and Winter.

4.Rejuvenate skin:

Ingredients like the cocoa & Vitamin E naturally contain antioxidants. These help to nourish and protect your skin by promoting cell repair. Antioxidants are also known to brighten the appearance of skin. Therefore using these coffee scrubs will leave you looking glowing and well rested! I definitely recommend using them for self-care or at home spa day.

5.Minimize dark eye circles:

Since coffee improves blood circulation, massaging a bit of the scrub on your face can actually help to reduce the appearance of dark circles. So even if you stay up all night binge watching Netflix shows, you can still look alive the next morning!

See, aren't coffee scrubs so amazing?? We really hope you love them just as much as we do. With scents like vanilla, coco berry, coconut and honey there is a scrub for everyone at BEANBODY.

It is however, important to note that caffeine can enter your body through your skin, so if you are sensitive to caffeine it's best to check with your doctor first!
