5 unusual uses for coffee

We all know the positive effects of a cup of coffee in the morning, but there are far more things these magical beans can do for us besides making us alert.

People have been drinking coffee for hundreds of years, enjoying the taste, but most of all the wonderful kick. In addition coffee can reduce inflammation and add volume to your hair. We list 5 ways coffee can make you glow, inside out.

Skin booster
The caffein in coffee actually helps brighten the skin and reduce inflammation. Use it to prevent puffy eyes by soaking two cotton pads in cold coffee, wring and put the pads over your eyes for about 10 minutes.

Beauty scrub
It might seem strange, but using ground coffee as face scrub will do wonders to your skin. Mix 1 cup of coffee ground, half a cup of sugar and 1 cup of coconut oil. Massage onto skin in the shower.

Volumizer
Conditioner can make our hair seem flat, but by adding ground coffee to your conditioner you will increase the volume to your hair. Simply mix, massage and rinse.

Soothes sunburn
Yes you read it correctly, a nasty sunburn hurts a lot, but by soaking a wash cloth in diluted cold coffee and then put it on the burnt area will soothe the skin immediately.

Face mask
What do you get if you mix half a cup coffee grounds, half a cup cocoa powder, 1 cup whole milk and honey? A cake? Nope, the perfect revitalizing face mask.
