Why does coffee work so well as an ingredient in skincare?

grums is an ethical Danish skincare company that utilizes coffee grounds collected from the cafes of Aarhus as the hero ingredient in their products. Not only is this a unique way of upcycling a 'waste' product but coffee provides many benefits for the skin -

Antioxidant Powerhouse

Coffee is packed with antioxidants, such as chlorogenic acid and melanoidins, that help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. These antioxidants can help reduce inflammation and protect against UV damage, making coffee a great addition to your skincare routine.

Improves Circulation

The caffeine in coffee is known for its ability to constrict blood vessels, which can help reduce redness and inflammation in the skin. Additionally, improved circulation can help brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes.

Exfoliation Benefits

Ground coffee beans can act as a gentle exfoliant, helping to slough off dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin underneath. This exfoliation process can also stimulate cell turnover, promoting a more youthful complexion.

Reduces Cellulite

Many cellulite creams contain caffeine as a key ingredient because it can help temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite by plumping up the skin and improving blood flow to the affected areas. While the effects may be temporary, regular use of coffee-infused products can help improve the overall appearance of cellulite.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Coffee has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help soothe irritated skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. By reducing inflammation, coffee can help calm redness and promote healing in the skin.

Next time you reach for your skincare products, consider incorporating coffee into your routine for its antioxidant-rich, circulation-boosting, exfoliating, cellulite-reducing, and anti-inflammatory benefits.
