Coffee is an instant wake-me-up and spring-me-into-action kind of drink for most us in the morning. The caffeine in coffee kicks the lazy molecule called adenosine out of your brain, so you feel fresh and alert. Apparently, coffee not only wakes up your brain but also has the capability to wake up your skin.

Coffee is a diuretic, which helps the skin get rid of unnecessary water and toxins. This gives the skin a healthy and toned appearance. The caffeine improves the blood circulation and skin metabolism, which reduces the appearance of cellulite. Plus, it’s an excellent exfoliator, ridding the skin of all the dead skin cells, dirt and other impurities.
