Caffeine Skincare Routine!

IMG_0778While I was sipping my Starbucks coffee this morning, I began to ponder the actual benefits it has (in particular when it’s incorporated into skincare). Yes, coffee is usually associated with waking people up in the morning, but it can also perk up your skin. The caffeine in coffee has a number of benefits for your skin, from treating redness and inflammation, to reducing the appearance of under-eye circles, to getting rid of cellulite. By incorporating caffeine into your skin care routine, you can reveal evenly toned, smooth skin all over your body. Additionally, coffee essential oil contains anti-aging properties and is a great additive to body scrubs for exfoliating and over-all toning the skin! Plus – my personal favorite is my ‘coffee n’ cream’ soap*.

So watch for the new “Caffeine Skincare Routine” class this fall! I’m excited already!

*Check the website for upcoming Soap Making, Pure & Simple class and in class, receive a recipe for this fabulous and fun soap bar!
