The Coffee Cure: How Coffee Scrubs Help Reduce the appearance of Scars & Stretch Marks

As if we needed another reason to love the coffee bean!

Besides the fact that it's responsible for getting most of us up and motivated for our day, it also interacts with our bodies in other surprising ways.

We're not talking about your morning latte, but instead the way coffee aids the skin when applied topically.

Here are some reasons we love using this bean in our Grounded coffee scrubs: Coffee can help eliminate the appearance of scars. One of the reasons that coffee is so effective on the skin is because the grounds can buff and exfoliate. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from your epidermis to show and stimulate new cells. When used topically as a scrub on the skin, it can deposit vitamins and nutrients, aiding in healthy regeneration. The newer cells that appear have a brighter tone giving the region a more even look.

Scars are a more sensitive area of the body, and coffee grounds are gentle enough to impact them without irritation. For this reason, we added it to our Grounded vitamin infused orange coffee scrub. Combining the brightening characteristics of orange oil and the antioxidant effects of the grounds, this coffee scrub helps eliminate the appearance of acne scars. It also smells better than a Bed and Breakfast.

Coffee helps combat cellulite. According to a recent study, a correlation was found between the caffeine in coffee and the minimization of cellulite. While coffee grounds have been a favorite in beauty circles for years, science went and found the reason for its magical toning abilities. When outwardly applied, the caffeine content in coffee dilates the blood vessels underneath to increase blood flow.

This helps the skin tighten the dimples underneath, reducing cellulite's lumpy appearance. When massaged around the area, our Grounded coffee scrubs help combat cellulite by reducing the swelling and preventing the stagnation of the lymphatic system—leaving your skin fuller and smooth. Coffee can reduce the severity of stretch marks. Although caffeine isn't the first thing we think about when it comes to prenatal health, a coffee scrub can significantly impact the appearance of stretch marks.

The gritty texture of the grounds is once again able to exfoliate away dead skin cells, leaving room for new cells to replace and take over. Over time, the healthy new cells will reduce the formation and look of stretch marks. We developed our Grounded coconut coffee scrub to be particularly helpful in this area.

We use the powerful exfoliation of coffee combined with the hydrating benefits of coconut oil to give you the best of both worlds. Coconut oil also boosts collagen in the skin, which minimizes stretch marks even more! As you can tell, the coffee bean's natural mixture of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals makes it an effective ingredient in skincare. At Grounded, we love mixing it with new components to produce natural scrubs that significantly impact your skin health. All while leaving your skin glowing and smelling like the start to a brand new day- what could be better?
