Coffee is known as the holy grail of beverages. After a couple of sips, coffee has the ability to instantaneously wake a person up and give them the energy they need for the day. But that is not the only way coffee can help the body: it has beauty benefits too!

Find out how ground coffee beans can easily be incorporated into your beauty routine:

Exfoliate Skin

The rough, grainy texture of ground coffee makes it a great exfoliator for your skin and body. Coffee grounds can help to brighten your skin and clean clogged pores. Make your own coffee scrub by mixing a tablespoon of coffee grounds with a tablespoon of olive oil.

Boost Hair Color

The natural pigments in coffee makes it a great dye and shiner for brunettes. Add some coffee grounds to your conditioner for an all-natural dye treatment.

Eliminate Eye Bags

Nine times out of ten, topical eye creams contain caffeinated products within them. So, using coffee grounds mixed with water under your eyes is a cheaper and more natural way to reduce puffiness and swelling under your eyes.
