Awhile ago i've read somewhere a big article about how to use leftover coffee grounds to figth cellulite and ever since then it was stuck in my head. You know, how coffe grounds are useful only for fortune tellers and for war with the orange peel skin on tushy. Boy was i wrong! It is amazing how much the mother nature can offer us - beauty product junkies. To get an amazing beauty remedy for anything you can possibly think of, you don't need to do much or pay more than a.. dollar/euro (this is how i imagine a cup of coffee costs.... lol) So i put together a list of ways of how to use almighty coffee grounds and tried them all, so let's see the results!
- This is how my obssesion with coffee grounds started. I was visiting my grandmother for a few days and she noticed how i wash my hair almost OR every single day. I had to sit down with her and listen to a looooong moral about how it's unhealthy for the hair and yada yada yada... So - ok - i said, - they get oily really fast i CAN'T go around looking like my hair can be in an highway ad for a pancake house (i noticed a phenomenon - my 2nd day hair smells like pancakes LOL.... did i just shared to much...? it's not gross smell, it's just... not a fresh smell anymore and tends to.. smell like... pancakes... ANYWAY....) She suggested me to try this:
- You can use coffee grounds as an exfoliator to your face. It's not to harsh, since the coffee grounds are tiny, but strong enough to rinse off the dead skin cells. So i mixed my simple everyday face cleanser with pinch of this little miracle and scrubbed my face. Afterwards sensation - SOFT! Hence it really works well. Pores looks less visible and my skin was all glowy. I'll try to use it every once a week, i really loved the results. It can save you hundreds of dollars since this simple product can practically replace several pricey sessions with your dermatologist.
- Skip the day spa and mix coffee grounds with egg whites for an inexpensive skin-tightening facial mask.
- And the most known way of using coffee grounds. Mix 1/4 cup warm, used coffee grounds and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. While standing over an old towel or newspaper, apply the mixture to your "problem areas". Next, wrap the areas with shrink wrap and leave on for several minutes. Unwind the wrap, brush loose grounds off your skin and then shower with warm water. For best results, it is recommended to repeat this procedure twice a week. A little weird to be sure, but as high priced cellulite creams have coffee in them, it just might work.
Do you, my lovelie ladies know any other beauty or non-beauty ways to use COFEE GROUNDS?
