Trend Alert: Coffee Not Just For Drinking

Most people kickstart their day with a cup of coffee in the morning to get their blood pumping.  Not only can coffee give you that extra boost but can also be used to revive and brighten your skin while reducing puffy eyes and prevent premature aging.

The beauty industry is turning to coffee scrubs because its acids exfoliate the skin both chemically and mechanically, constricting the blood vessels to prevent clogged pores and soften the lines of the skin.

One such treatment called the Weekend Warrior serves as the ultimate skin refresher.  The 150-minute massage and facial therapy treatment is a fatigue-fighting sequence that starts with an invigorating coffee and sea kelp scrub to slough away unwanted dry and flaky skin. Following that comes a massage targeting areas of tension, knotty tissue and tightness to ease stress. The grand finale is a facial to revitalize, exfoliate, brighten and tighten your skin while boosting healthy cell regeneration. If that’s not enough, research proves that topically applied coffee helps to protect against some skin cancers at the molecular level by inhibiting a protein enzyme in skin.

The Weekend Warrior is currently offered by SpaQ at QT Sydney in Australia.
