If you haven't already noticed coffee is a very hardworking bean!
Not only does coffee give us the pick me up we need when we've had a poor nights sleep, but when it’s used as an exfoliating scrub it can work absolute wonders on our skin.
So why not turn your daily morning ritual into your bathroom routine because here are our 4 reasons why we love to scrub!
1. It helps to reduce puffiness & inflammation by restricting blood vessels.
Coffee has very amazing anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce inflammation and soothe red, inflamed breakouts.
2. It's loaded with antioxidants which help to fight the signs of ageing.
The antioxidants found in coffee are good for the skin so one scrub can instantly leave you with glowing, fresh and youthful skin.
3. It helps tighten skin, which can in turn reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Popping your scrub on your thighs, knees or stomach will help to get rid of the dead skin cells from your body so your skin will surely feel softer, look smoother smoother and feel more rejuvenated.
4. It improves blood circulation.
When you use a coffee scrub on your body, the caffeine acts as a stimulant which helps to improves the circulation of your blood flow, waking you up from head to toe!
So that settles it, coffee can do it all ;)
We have been loving using the Bean Body Coffee Scrub from our Spring Box.

Overnight oats are one of our go to recipes for breakfast!
Not only are they nourishing and delicious, but they are soo easy to make. All you have to do is mix up all of the ingredients the night before and pop it in the fridge, so breakfast is as easy as opening the fridge door!
We have especially been loving these Orange and Cardamom Overnight Oats with Almond Fudge by Sarah Bell from Our Nourishing Table....
