We're putting coffee beans to work for hands and feet!
Coffee beans, when finely ground, make an excellent natural body polish that can help renew and brighten skin tone. We use real, fresh roasted, fair-trade coffee beans in our Coffee Bean Pepper Fresh Scrub that still have all their powerful antioxidants and vitamins. Brewed coffee beans can lose some of their antioxidant properties due to exposure to higher temperatures needed for brewing (less worry about that if you're cold brewing!) Either way, exfoliating is an important step in maintaining skin health and coffee beans make it easy. Exfoliating promotes circulation which encourages even skin tone, so the antioxidants are a big bonus if you're using our beans.
We're talking hands and feet today, two parts that often get neglected when it comes to body TLC. Our hands and feet (well, mostly hands - haha) are such great tools that allow us to do so many things in life. They give us access to information, adventure, experience, and memories, so they are definitely worth caring for. More than likely they are going to be with you for a while, so you should treat 'em right!
Give those digits and dogs some love with a massaging rub down using a drain-safe scrubby. Plastic beads are a popular filler/scrubbing agent in many commercial body washes, but those plastic beads are being looked at for causing some notable environmental damage. Plastics in these scrubbing products get washed down our drain and can make their way all the way out to the ocean. Out there, tiny, floating plastic beands can embed themselves in marine life - plants and animals - and I won't go into explaining why plastic in the ocean is just bad, mkay? Using real ingredients that are already safe for drains is a great and effective alternative to get rid of that dead skin.
