The awesome benefits of coffee... in and out the body.

The beauty benefits of coffee for skincare are amazing! Allure’s 2013 survey on anti-aging reveals that 85% of African-American women believe they maintain a young looking appearance longer than Asians, Latinos, and Whites.

However, maintenance is an essential part of skincare and looking younger beyond your years. Have you tried a coffee face mask before?  Ahh, you really should treat yourself and someone you love.  I promise you’ll repeat the process.  

As we all know, the sun wreaks havoc on our skin and preventing the damages requires a little forethought and work. Have you given much thought to including coffee for skincare in your beauty treatments?
