A jolt of caffeine in the morning is totally necessary, and the best way to reap the benefits of it is by slathering it all over your body. No jitteriness, no calories and definitely no afternoon crash… just smooth, firm, well rested skin! Caffeine has made waves in the beauty industry for its anti-aging properties, ability to tighten skin and diminish cellulite in addition to providing extra UV protection. Adding coffee to your skincare routine is a definite YES!
Whether you just need a little something extra, or an entire routine to get you up & going in the morning, below are a few products that will change the way you start your day.
[ 1. FarmHouse Fresh Triple Shot Caramel Coffee Scrub ] • Infused with hydrating shea butter, caffeine & Arabica bean extract this rich, whipped scrub will leave your skin nourished & glowing. The scent is intoxicating and the formula really wakes up dull, tired skin and on top of that, it’s 97% natural, paraben & sulfate free. I love every body scrub I’ve used from FarmHouse fresh, but this is by far my favorite! http://www.farmhousefreshgoods.com
[ 2. Live Beautifully Coffee Shop Lip Balm Set ] • All natural & handmade in Colorado, Live Beautifully found a really fun, useful & unique way to add coffee to your daily routine by adding the addictive scent to super hydrating lip balms. The three flavors included: hazelnut coffee (my favorite) – warm hazelnut & coffee, brandy coffee – brandy and bold coffee, and iced mocha coffee – rich dark chocolate and coffee. With ingredients like cocoa butter, mango butter, beeswax, vitamin E and essential oils, these are packed with beneficial nutrients to protect and moisturize lips, leaving them smooth all day long. http://www.live-beautifully.net
[ 3. Terre Verdi OrangeCoffee Cleansing Mask ] • This powder thoroughly cleanses your pores and leaves your skin rejuvenated and purified. The coffee grinds are full of antioxidants eliminating skin impurities leaving your skin incredibly smooth and the scent of orange is so refreshing! Mix 1/2 tsp (or so) with water and gently massage onto skin (I use this for my face only) let it completely dry, then rinse off. 100% natural, the combination of kaolin clay and moroccan lava clay totally detoxify skin in the most non-invasive way. I use this mask constantly, it’s great for sensitive skin as well. http://www.terreverdi.com

The candlenut creme is super rich and full of essential fatty acids.. I am definitely addicted to this.
