Scrubbing should be an essential part of your skincare routine as it helps in removing dead skin cells and cleanses the skin pores. You might be aware that unclogged pores are the main culprit behind breakouts and acne. Your all-natural face scrub can help you unclog your skin pores, remove dirt, and excess oil.

The benefits of using a coffee scrub for face

You read that right, coffee is a great ingredient for a face scrub as it is an exfoliating agent that reduces inflammation and improves blood circulation, providing you with clean and radiant skin.

You see, there are various benefits of coffee for the skin. Coffee contains antioxidants, such as phenols that help fight free radicals, thereby preventing your skin from damage. Its anti-inflammatory properties are due to the chlorogenic acid and melanoidins contained in it, which helps reduce hyperpigmentation. Even your dark circle won’t stand a chance in front of coffee as caffeine content in coffee helps dilate blood vessels that contribute to dark circles.

The benefits of neem oil for skin

Neem, on the other hand, has been known from time immemorial to be beneficial for the skin. Neem oil in particular contains various ingredients such as vitamin E, antioxidants, calcium and limonoids that enhance skin health. Neem oil can help manage dry skin, wrinkles and boost collagen production. Its cleansing properties can help treat acne and reduce scars.
