Best beauty remedies form the nature - COFEE GROUNDS

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:
Save the coffee grounds from the coffe and let it dry. Once i see that i need to wash my hair use it INSTEAD of shampoo. Rub it in your scalp, like you would when usualy shampooing your hair. Place a shower cap on your head, and wait 20minutes. In the mean time you can do your usual shower routine... or sing and dance in front of the mirror. Whatever you want - go nuts! And rinse the coffee out after. Of course realy thoroughly. There will be kinda weird feeling... and smell on your hair. The hair won't be as amazingly clean and fresh compared to washed with shampoo,and will smell like coffee.... But it's just the 1st time. Ok, and the 2nd.... After that you'll get used to it, and the greatest part of this routine is you will need to wash your hair like once a week. It will handle the scalp oils really well. And the coffee smell is noticable only right after the shower, once i put my perfume on it's gone.  It also stimulates hair folicle and hair will be growing somewhat faster.
  • 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?
Or can you count how many times in the article i used the phrase ''COFFEE GROUNDS''? LOL
Let's discuss the effect and efficiency of.... IT lol, in the comment section!

  3. I was reading from Cellulean reviews and they mentioned coffee scrub can help fight cellulite too, I was wondering how often should you do this in a week?

  4. Hey, Leann!

    Once a week would be best, combined with workout, ofcourse would give the best results. Try wrapping coffe ground covered thighs in plastic wrap for 15minutes! Heat helps burn off all the bad stuff.
