Even though we often hear opposing views on whether or not coffee is actually good for you, more and more research is emerging to suggest there may be several health benefits associated with drinking coffee. It can help with everything from preventing diabetes to lowering the risk of liver disease, heart failure and Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, coffee is high in antioxidants which fight free radicals, keeping you looking and feeling younger. It can also make you smarter. Studies have shown that coffee improves various aspects of brain function, including memory, mood, reaction times and general cognitive function- let’s get our brew on!

That’s because caffeine is one of the few natural substances that has actually been proven to significantly aid fat burning. Several studies show that caffeine can boost the metabolic rate by 3-11%.
Welcome: Coffee Scrubs. By combining the toning, energising effects of caffeine with the exfoliating action of coffee granules and you get a supreme beautifying scrub that not only gives smoother skin but increases circulation due to the stimulating effects of caffeine, thus reducing cellulite.
