Anti-Aging Coffee Bean Face Oil Recipe
I’m so excited to tell you about this Anti-Aging Coffee Bean Face Oil!
First of all, it’s SO simple to make. It’s just 2 ingredients and smells ridiculously good. And I’ve experienced some of the best results from using it the past couple of months!
Since using it, I’ve noticed a big improvement to my skin, especially the area around my eyes. It’s lessened the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smoothed the skin around my eye area. I’ve also noticed that it reduces puffiness and tightens and firms! Plus it gives me such a great glow with ingredients that have been proven to restore sun damaged and aging skin. And this may be all in my head, but I swear that it makes my face look so much more awake and refreshed. I’m in love with it! And I’m so excited for you to try it, too!
After you try it for a few weeks, please let me know if you think you look more awake and refreshed. I’m curious to know if that’s all in my head or not! 😉
Benefits of Coffee for Skin
You may have noticed that cosmetic manufacturers have started putting coffee bean extract in many of their formulas. And for good reason. Coffee is so fantastic for the skin!
Coffee is one of the richest sources of antioxidants. Antioxidants are so important for the skin because they protect our skin against free radicals that damage and age us. The caffeine in coffee stimulates the skin and improves blood flow to the face, which is perfect for healthy cell turnover that makes us look fresh, radiant and bright. Caffeine is considered a vasodilator, which means it tightens and firms the skin, too!
Another really cool benefit of using coffee for the skin is that it increases the production of collagen and elastin. The caffeine in coffee minimizes fine lines and protects against the loss of moisture making it the ideal weapon for anti-aging.
And if you have sun burned or sun damaged skin, you’ll be really happy to know that coffee helps reverse the damage of UV rays, too!
I’ve been totally in love with using coffee on my skin ever since I first used my coffee scrub for glowing skin (recipe HERE). That scrub is just amazing – it’s the best scrub I’ve ever used. Now that I’ve added this Anti-Aging Coffee Bean Face Oil to my skin, my skin has never looked better!
Benefits of Rosehip Oil for Skin
Rosehip Oil is one of the most popular oils for anti-aging because it repairs and regenerates damaged skin tissue. It’s well tolerated by all skin types, even oily skin because it helps regulate natural sebum production.
Rosehip oil penetrates deeply into the lower layers of the skin where it regenerates cells and increases collagen production. It is rich in vitamin C and E, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and retinoic acid, which studies have shown to brighten and tighten skin! It also helps restore skin’s elasticity, fades age spots and dark circles, reduces broken capillaries, and balances oil glands.
Besides all the wonderful skin benefits, it’s ability to absorb easily and quickly into the skin is one of the reasons why I like rosehip oil so much. A little goes a long way, too! I use THIS rosehip oil and have been really happy with it.
Anti-Aging Coffee Bean Face Oil Recipe
Using a small bowl, mix rosehip oil and coffee bean essential oil until well blended. Store in a dark, glass container (I use THIS – I love the dropper) and in a cool, dry place. You only need a drop or two for your whole face! I use this oil all over my face and neck each morning. It’s very hydrating so I find that I don’t need any additional moisturizer. I let the oil absorb into my skin for a minute or two then apply my makeup.
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised after trying this Anti-Aging Coffee Bean Face Oil after a few weeks! I’d love to hear what you think of it and your results after using it. I hope you experience the same great benefits I have!
P.S. I think this would be an awesome DIY Christmas gift, right? At least, I know I would love to get this as a gift 🙂 I think I’m going to make a big batch of this coffee face oil and the coffee scrub for Christmas gifts this year and give the set to all the wonderful ladies in my life!
