Ever questioned the secret to sumptuously smooth skin, even during the abysmal depths of Winter? Enter Bean Body, the prodigy coffee scrub we simply can’t get enough of. As we all know, all good things start in the shower, but when temperatures drop, your bodycare routine requires acclimatizing. Of course, raising the game when it comes to moisturising is essential, but counterproductive without our number one bodycare step: exfoliation. Bean Body’s coffee bean scrub provides your body with the hit of caffeine it needs, not dissimilar to the way your mind feels a buzz after your morning expresso. In the Winter, it’s not unusual to crack up your central heating to obscene levels, but this combined with the crisp, cold air outside, will leave skin dehydrated. Exfoliating helps to buff away these dead cells, making way for fresh, healthier regenerated cells. Bean Body’s coffee scrub is also tough enough to improve skin’s imperfections while leaving you feeling softer and smoother than ever.
Not sure how to use it? Here are our top five ways to get the most out of your coffee bean scrub…
BEFORE FAKE TAN
With party season looming, you’re going to want to pull out all the stops when it comes to achieving that perfect faux glow. Before you let loose with your tanning mitt, you need to exfoliate. If you don’t, you’ll be left with a rather patchy tan that appears more like the skin of a satsuma than bronzed goddess. Fortunately, the Bean Body coffee scrub provides everything you need to lightly but effectively remove dead skin without the irritation, leaving you with nothing but a flawless, even tan.
BEFORE YOU SHAVE
Shaving after exfoliating limits your chances of ingrown hairs, slogging away the pesky dead skin cells that like to make base within your pores. Because Bean Body’s scrub harnesses nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, skin is moisturised while you scrub, enveloping your body with a sumptuous oil texture that aids friction going in with your razor.
Got a date coming up? Whether it’s a first date, second or third, you’re going to want to look and feel your best, right? Feeling confident comes from within but feeling good in your skin positively helps. Prep and preen by giving skin a smooth makeover with a rejuvenating coffee scrub that has a subtle scent (like the coconut version). Not only will you smell divine, you won’t have to worry about *accidentally* stroking their leg with yours under the table…
DURING THE SUNDAY PAMPER
If there was a day made for a good pamper session, it was Sunday. In fact, a pampering session is one of the only ways you’ll get us to budge from the sofa following a deep and meaningful (well…) Netflix binge. Prepping for the week ahead is a positive way to get yourself in the right frame of mind to take on the next five days of being office bound. With your hair firmly up in a messy bun, it’s time to relax and unwind in a steaming hot bath while enjoying a scented scrub. Afterwards, simply grab your cosiest pjs, fluffiest socks and revert to the sofa while perusing the list of temptations on Deliveroo. The perfect Sunday night in. You’re welcome.
TO ALEVIATE STRESS
Often the working week brings stress of some kind, whether that’s because you’ve got a number of deadlines to meet, or it’s been a particular busy. When you arrive home after a hectic day, your mind can feel burdened and stress consumes your entire body. What better way to alleviate stress than quite literally scrubbing away your troubles? Using Bean Body on these days gives you time to yourself, even if brief. The way you’ll feel afterwards, and the way you’ll smell, is nothing but tranquil.
