Rise & (Coffee) Grind

Sluggish start to your morning? We can fix that.

Sipping a hot cup of coffee on a quiet, peaceful morning is arguably one of the best ways to start your day. Packed with antioxidants and a boost of energy, coffee is a staple in the I AM Organic office. But did you know that the beans that make your cup of joe can also support healthy, glowing skin

 

 

 

I AM Awake is our newest cappuccino-scented coffee scrub that provides gentle exfoliation while nourishing and moisturizing your skin. Ground coffee beans, organic sugar, and honey are just some of the standout ingredients that will smooth and soften your skin. Here are a few reasons why we love using coffee in our skincare regimen:

  • It’s no secret that coffee contains caffeine, which is said to penetrate the skin and prevent accumulation of fat in your cells, making it a key ingredient for temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite.
  • Can coffee fight the signs of aging? One theory suggests that since coffee is rich in antioxidants, it is effective in fighting oxidative stress on your cells, making your skin appear more vibrant and youthful.
  • Another study found that the topical application of caffeine may have the ability to minimize skin damage like fine lines and wrinkles caused by UV rays (but we still recommend slathering on the SPF).
  • Exfoliation is essential for building a gorgeous, even tan. We love using this scrub before we hit the beach!

 

 

From getting you through the mid-day slump to revitalizing your complexion, coffee is an ingredient that we can’t imagine our medicine cabinet (or kitchen) without. Buff away dead skin cells to reveal radiant skin and kick start your morning with I AM Organic.

I AM Awake is a nutrient-rich body scrub that is free from parabens and sulfates. As an environmentally conscious company, our entire line uses ingredients that are kind to your skin as well as the planet and we never test on animals. As with any new product, we recommend testing a small patch of skin first.
