You probably drink 1 or 2 coffees every morning. What do you do with the coffee grounds afterwards? You probably throw them out! Yet, you have a long list of ways to use it. Before throwing out your coffee filter, take a look at these 7 beauty routines that use coffee beans.
1. For glowing skin
Applying coffee to your skin helps eliminate dead skin and also helps soften the look of wrinkles. Scrub some on your face to exfoliate your skin then rinse to discover soft and glowing skin.
2. Tackle your cellulite
Caffeine stimulates blood flow and helps to firm up the skin. An exfoliating scrub could help eliminate your cellulite.
Mix ½ a cup of ground coffee with 1 tablespoon wine and a few drops of ginger extract. Scrub the mixture on your skin.

After washing your hair, mix some coffee and water to create a paste. Apply the mixture directly on your black hair to make them glossier and nicer.

Coffee helps reduce the look of wrinkles and reduce inflammation near the eyes. Apply some under your eyes to activate blood flow and eliminate your tired look.
