There is one good reason why coffee is the best thing on the planet. The joy it brings begins at brewing time and continues even after the coffee grounds have been used.
Aside from the known uses of coffee in the kitchen, there are other unique ways that coffee can be enjoyed. You would be surprised to know that besides reaping the benefits of drinking coffee, it can be used as an ingredient for homemade beauty products. The best thing about it is you get to save a lot of money, and you don’t have to step out of your home to enjoy a beauty treatment!
We give you, different ways to use coffee grounds other than in your morning cuppa!
Coffee for Glossy Hair
The hair is often treated with chemicals and using a coffee hair mask is a natural, safe, convenient and a cost-effective way to keep the hair smooth. Simply brew an extra strong coffee and apply on dry, clean hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes then rinse off. You only have to do this once a week to notice changes in your hair.
The coffee grounds make for a gentle and effective exfoliator that will not scratch the skin. It can be used everyday to replace your usual facial scrub. Don’t forget to mix olive oil and essential oils to add to the moisturising effect of the coffee scrub. Those coffee scrubs that come with a hefty price tag have basically the same ingredients.
Eliminate Pet Odours
Coffee is one of the best known stink eliminators! With all the known harmful effects of cleaning agents and deodorisers, it would be great to keep some coffee grounds to absorb pet odours. It’s safe for the family and the pets and keeps the home chemical-free, too.
Insects are difficult to control, and what most repellants can’t do, coffee can do perfectly. The acidity of coffee will help keep flies, mosquitoes, ants and other insects away. Sprinkle coffee grounds on your garden or place them in jars around the kitchen.
Deal with Cellulite
Bummed about your cellulite? We found a great video that shows how coffee can be used to reduce cellulite on your body. It is so easy to make and use. Going to a salon to get the same treatment will cost you a lot of money. This one can be done in a few minutes and women who have tried it say they love how their skin feels smooth after using the home-made treatment.
Now you don’t have to spend lots of money to get beauty products — simply use your coffee!
