Millions of people around the world prefer coffee to any other drink. Indeed, there are many options to choose from — espresso, with or without milk, hot, iced… But what’s even more impressive is how many uses this popular beverage has besides drinking. And some of them have nothing to do with cooking.
We made up a list of cool things you can do with coffee other than drink it and we want to share them with you.
13. Hand deodorizer
Who can resist the magical smell of fresh coffee? Don’t you want to come in every time you pass by a coffee shop and inhale the amazing smell of freshly brewed coffee?
So why not try coffee as a hand deodorizer? Use coffee grounds to remove the garlic or onion smell from your hands — rub thoroughly and rinse with water. Done! Your hands smell like coffee.
12. Face mask
Apart from its amazing smell and exquisite taste, coffee has a number of benefits for the skin.
Coffee grounds remove dead skin cells and provide an anti-wrinkle effect due to their antioxidant content. This makes coffee grounds one of the best products for your skin. You can use ground coffee right on your face or try it in different face masks.
Like this one, for example:
- Add 1 tsp of baking soda to ground coffee (enough to cover your face);
- Thoroughly mix the ingredients;
- Apply to face;
- Leave for 20 minutes and wash with warm water. Apply moisturizing cream after the procedure. You’ll notice the results right away!
This mask also brings you the advantages of baking soda, which effectively cleanses oily skin.
