3 alternative uses with coffee that will surprise you!


1. Skin scrub

Thanks to their texture and caffeine,  ground coffee beans are very good for exfoliating the skin and reducing cellulite. For the latter, it is highly recommended to mix the coffee grounds with a little coconut oil and then rub it in a circular motion all over the skin. To exfoliate, something very similar is done: coffee is mixed with half a tablespoon of olive oil and rubbed on the skin for a few minutes. In the end, you just have to rinse.

2. Gives shine to the hair

We can reuse coffee to have much brighter hair. This is achieved through a solution of coffee and water, just as it is done when we want a cup of this drink, which must be cold or at least at room temperature. The solution is used after washing the hair, letting it sit there for about twenty minutes. Finally rinsed.

3. Air freshener

In addition to avoiding bad odors, coffee also works as an air freshener thanks to the fact that its aroma is usually strong and penetrating, as well as pleasant. In this case, we must place the ground coffee inside a porous fiber or cloth that allows the smell of coffee to spread throughout the place. Additionally, some type of aromatic oil or fruit peels can be added.
