The caffeine in coffee fights these free radicals and eliminates them from the skin, thus giving the skin an improved over-all look.
Caffeine is also anti-inflammatory and is therefore effective in reducing inflammation and redness, particularly those caused by insect bites and minor cuts and wounds. It constricts blood vessels and works as a diuretic. It is therefore effective against swelling and can give the skin a firm and tight appearance.
Because of its diuretic properties, caffeine is said to be effective against cellulite. Water is dehydrated from fatty cells found on the surface of the skin, resulting to skin that is more even and smooth.
Milk, on the other hand, is a natural skin exfoliate. It is said to have beta hydroxy acid which helps eliminate dead skin cells. It is also rich in lactic acid which can lighten the skin. Milk can also shrink pores and is loaded with vitamins and minerals that can make the skin look radiant and smooth. It is also a good moisturizer for dry skin and can restore the skin’s natural moisture and elasticity.
Because of the presence of caffeine and milk in one bar, ONO Coffee and Cream is potentially effective against swelling and redness. It is a good soap for those who constantly suffer from insect bites and minor cuts and wounds, like those who work in the farms. It is also a good soap for those who suffer from body and underarm odor, and those who have stretchmarks and cellulites. It is also a good soap for exfoliating dead skin cells and for restoring skin elasticity.
Note on Exfoliates. This soap is an exfoliate due to the coffee grounds that are present in the bar. Exfoliates should not be rubbed on the skin daily, otherwise the skin will not have time to grow back. Overuse of exfoliates can potentially cause rashes.
Use. Because this soap is an exfoliate, it should be used directly on the skin only 2-3 times a week. If it has to be used daily, do not rub directly on the skin. Lather using hands and and use hands to apply.
