If you’ve been wondering about the actual effects of sugar and coffee skin care, you will find today’s post vey informative. For your morning cup of coffee, it’s generally suggested that you skip the sugar, or at least keep it to a minimum. Sugar has a variety of negative impacts on overall health that negative the positive effects of moderate coffee consumption. Sugar has been linked to everything from obesity to acne to blotchy skin.
But when coffee is used in skincare products, things are a little bit different. In fact, sugar often pairs quite nicely with coffee for giving your skin a healthy boost. We spoke with the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics to find out why.
Brown Sugar for Gentle Exfoliating
One advantage of sugar as a skincare product is its versatility. Brown sugar, for example, has a much finer, gentler texture than its white sugar counterpart. This makes it an ideal exfoliating agent for the face, removing dead skin cells in a manner that’s not overly harsh. And when paired with coffee skin care, which is already an excellent exfoliator, it makes a perfect one-two tandem for facial rejuvenation. It’s also an excellent choice if you’re looking for a gentler body scrub. This is why Callyssee Cosmetics incorporated brown sugar into their Vanilla Bean Buffing Beans Coffee Scrub.
White Sugar for More Aggressive Exfoliating
Of course, some of us need a little more vigorous exfoliating than others to achieve our body beauty goals. And sugar can answer the call in this arena, as well, with coarser white sugar. This can be a great addition to body scrub products when you need more aggressive attention to dry patches or other problem areas. The slightly coarser sugar acts like fine-grit sandpaper to leave your skin renewed, softer and more youthful looking. And, of course, it pairs quite nicely with coffee, as well.
