Starbucks Coffee: A Beauty Secret!!!
...well not just Starbucks Coffee, any Coffee...
So What's your favorite Starbucks Drink?
…My Fave is the Caramel Frappuccino…“so yummy”
If you didn’t know, a Frappuccino, is a registered trademark of Starbucks, it is a blend of ice and usually a mix of coffee, water, milk, and various syrups. Coffee is always known to invigorate us every morning. But did you know that besides being a delicious and awakening beverage that it can be your very own beauty secret. Yep! I said it, Coffee can be a good part of both your skin and hair care. Coffee is full of antioxidants making it ideal for skin care and anti aging. It can also help improve the hair and can minimize hair damage. With its rich antioxidant content, coffee can help repair the damaged hair and prevent breakage. One warning, Coffee should never be applied directly to colored hair.
Here are a few good tips you can use at home:
For Hair: brew espresso and use this as hair rinse. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and rinse with tap water. It will help achieve a softer and shinier look to your hair.
For Face Exfoliations: All you need is a quarter cup of ground coffee mixed with a tablespoon of salt. To make the coffee even more effective, brew a cup first, then use the brewed coffee! Remember to use it within 20 minutes though, because oxidization after that point will make the coffee less effective.
…so come on everyone drink your coffees…
