The beauty in coffee scrubs

“Nature gives you the face you have at age 20; it is up to you to merit the face you have at age 50,” fashion designer Coco Chanel once said. While you may not be hitting the half century mark as yet, you’ll definitely want a beautiful and healthy skin. So, why not invest in coffee scrubs?

When it comes to proper skincare, Flair wants to know everything so it can guide you accordingly. Nobody wants poorly looking skin, right? So, intrigued by the power of this bean-based scrub, Flair hopped to The Jamaica Pegasus hotel to meet Georgia Gordon, owner of Nature’s Pure Oils and Cosmetics. She gave us the low-down on the antiageing and cellulite reduction remedy, which she makes with her bare hands.

“Coffee scrubs serve a lot of purposes including removing varicose veins, tightening and toning the skin, and fighting acne,” she told Flair.

So you see, coffee isn’t only for kick-starting your day on a high note. These beauty agents are also great for exfoliation and leaving the skin looking and feeling anew.

She toots her own horn for having created an incredible product, which she said customers continue to praise. It’s made from real coffee and juice extracted from the beans, natural oils and other special ingredients. Plus, it does not contain chemicals.

Proper skincare is much like dieting. You have to be consistent and committed to your routine. Her product can be used on the face, back and other areas of the body. And doesn’t need any other ingredients to activate it. For the best results, Gordon recommends using the scrub twice per week. That’s because overexfoliation can be harmful for the skin. That means your skin will start to age faster. You don’t want that, right?

“A lot of people don’t know that the scrub also helps with getting off puffy eyes and offers great protection from the sun burns,” she said.

Nature’s Pure Oils and Cosmetics coffee scrub also moisturises the skin. According to Gordon, you won’t need to moisturise or apply lotion to your skin after using her product. All you have to do is apply it on to your damp skin and let it rest for 15 minutes.

There’s also the coffee scrub soap, which does pretty much the same as the scrub. However, the difference with it is it does not contain as much moisturising properties as the scrub and it lathers. It exfoliates and cleanses simultaneously.
