Coffee is definitely a delicious drink that many people partake in! Some people prefer it black, some people prefer it with cream and sugar.

Well, drinking coffee isn't the only purpose it can serve; coffee is a wonderful "multipurpose" product and it can actually be beneficial to your skin and hair. Here are 5 cool ways that coffee can energize your body (on the outside):
1. Acne Treatment
Acne is an issue that many of us face, let’s be real. Acne is typically causes from dead skin, clogged pores and bacteria as well as fluctuations in hormones.
The antioxidants, stimulants, and chlorogenic acids in coffee may make it an effective acne-fighting facial scrub! Exfoliating with coffee grounds can help to clear away dead skin cells and unclog the pores.
2. Dark Circles
Caffeine is a stimulant, which means that it increases blood flow and dilates blood vessels. This can help the skin to naturally tighten. The result may be a reduction in the buildup of fluid under the eyes.

Using hair products that have a higher pH value than the hair may result in dullness, frizziness, and damage.

5. Cellulite Reduction
Because of the fact that the antioxidants and caffeine in coffee help to dilate blood vessels and tighten the skin, it’s also a great way to improve the appearance of cellulite.
