We have some new natural body care products from Simply Polished, a company based in Calgary and I want to take a minute to share with the many benefits of coffee scrubs and natural deodorant. Coffee scrubs and natural deodorant are the latest trend in beauty products and they are here to stay! People love buying organic, natural and cruelty-free products which all of Simply Polished products are. As someone who is an owner of a beagle (the most tested on dog in labs because of their friendly and trusting nature) I'm glad to be carrying a line that supports the cruelty-free movement. Please read some useful information below...
BENEFITS OF COFFEE SCRUBS
Coffee scrubs help treat cellulite in a variety of ways. It’s thought that the caffeine in coffee can help dilate blood vessels and reduce the appearance of skin dimples. Skin can also tighten from the stimulating effects of caffeine by improving blood flow and eliminating excess water and is therefore also anti-inflammatory.
Coffee is rich in polyphenols, a group of antioxidants also found in foods like berries, tea, chocolate, and wine. These work to fight free radicals and slow down the process of aging. They have also been shown to help protect against ultraviolet radiation and slow down aging of the skin caused by heavy sun exposure.
Due to its slightly coarse nature, ground coffee makes an excellent exfoliator. The coffee grounds help get rid of dead skin cells and can help stimulate lymph drainage and increase blood flow. This is beneficial when it comes to achieving glowing skin and removing toxins. Plus your skin will be very smooth!
Brightens skin and reduces puffiness!
The antioxidants in coffee can also revive dull, tired skin by bringing up nutrients into the pores. Coffee has the ability to increase circulation (thanks to its caffeine content), topical coffee can quickly brighten your complexion when used in a mask or scrub. When applied it can also help reduce puffiness.
...AND OF COURSE WHO DOESN'T LOVE THE SMELL OF COFFEE?! Refreshing and invigorating!
BENEFITS OF NATURAL DEODORANT
Doesn't contain parabens or aluminum!
Using natural deodorant keeps your underarm pores clear. Of course if pores aren't kept clear it can lead to acne and other dermatological problems. Aluminum-based antiperspirants work by clogging the sweat duct, producing a blockage in the areas that it’s applied. While there is no conclusive evidence that aluminum can cause breast cancer there are many people out there that would rather be safe than sorry.
Studies have shown that some parabens can mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in the body’s cells. Certain estrogen activity is associated with some forms of breast cancer. Parabens have been also been found present in breast tumors.
You don't smell as much!
This truly surprised me! I found that natural deodorant worked just as well as aluminum based. I always thought that sweat was what made me stinky after workouts, but it turns out it’s actually bacteria. This natural deodorant actually works against that and you sweat naturally! I spent a whole day in 30 degree (celsius) and didn't smell!
Doesn't cause yellow stains on your whites
I've thrown out many white tees because of yellow stains, I'm sure you can relate! The aluminum in antiperspirants is the culprit of those nasty stains. When I made the switch, I didn’t realize that I’d also be lengthening the lifespan of my favourite whites, yay!
Less underarm irritation
As someone who has sensitive skin, I’ve struggled with underarm irritation after shaving, chaffing during workouts, and clogged pores. Since switching to Simply Polished Natural Deodorant I’ve noticed that my skin is softer and less irritated.
Added bonus is it doesn't cause white marks on dark clothing either! You're also supporting a Canadian small business when you buy Simply Polished products on our site. Check out the full collection on our site by clicking the picture below!
