1. Coffee Body Wash
Finding the right body wash is something that may take time and practice. Certain bottles may look nice or have a great price, but that doesn’t always guarantee that your skin won’t react badly.
Instead of trying out random bottles of body wash at the store, try a coffee-based body wash. When coffee beans are ground up and infused into soothing body wash, it dives deep into your skin to soften and firm it. Some brands may even have washes that don’t smell like coffee, so you can use as much as you want as often as you’d like.
2. Java Night Repair
During the day, you skin protects you from everything you come in contact with. It’s your body’s barrier against the world, so it’s normal for your skin to need some help at the end of the day. When that moment comes, try Estée Lauder’s Night Repair serum after washing your face clean before bed. It uses coffee beans as one of its core ingredients to minimize puffiness and dry skin.
3. Green Coffee Detox Booster
Planning your wedding involves a fair amount of stress, which leaves your skin tired. Clarin’s Booster Detox invigorates tired and dull skin so you have a radiant complexion in the months leading up to and during your wedding. Apply it overnight to see a next-day difference in your skin.

4. Coffee Eye Cream
Stress and allergies may make your eyes puffy and irritated, but coffee can help with that. The next time you’re at the store, check out 100% Pure’s Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. Because it contains no toxins, it won’t irritate sensitive or dry skin while it uses soothing antioxidants and caffeine to banish puffiness around your eyes.
5. DIY Exfoliating Scrub
Not all beauty products have to come from a store. If you have coffee grounds at home, they’ll make a beautiful exfoliating scrub you can use morning and night. Mix them with brown sugar and coconut oil for an easy and quick beauty solution.
6. Water Retention Coffee Cream
Whether it’s stress or hormones, brides sometimes struggle with excess water retention. If you apply a cream or lotion with a coffee base, you’ll quickly notice a difference. It breaks down fat cells and releases extra water so you can get back to wearing your favorite rings and clothing.
7. Java Lip Balm
Beauty care includes your lips, which you want to be picture perfect for your big I Do kiss. Coffee goes a long way in healing raw or chapped lips, so test out Hurraw’s Coffee Bean Balm the next time your lips feel sensitive. The coffee bean oil mends your lips on a cellular level and the added raw chocolate taste doesn’t hurt anything either.
8. Coffee Extract Mist
After you’ve enjoyed your morning coffee and want to get ready for the day, spray a coffee extract mist on your clean skin before applying makeup. Origins Energy-Boosting Lotion Mist brings life to your skin and kickstarts its healing, repairing and protecting it all day long.
9. Coffee Bean Perfume
Your beauty routine is meant to help your skin and make you smell great, so cut straight to the chase with coffee bean perfume. Because of its popularity, you can choose from different fragrances to find the one you like. Depending on what you buy, your skin will feel and smell better at the same time.
10. Java Themed Cleanser
Brides worry about their skin breaking out just before their wedding, but a java themed cleanser will prevent that from happening. Swap out your current facial wash for Priori Coffeeberry Revitalizing Cleanser instead. Starting from your first use, it gently removes makeup and oil to cleanse your pores and even your skin tone.
Have Fun Exploring
Make your wedding planning experience more fun by exploring all the different coffee-based beauty products on the market. They’ll revitalize your skin and amp up your beauty routine by using something you look forward to every day.
