There doesn’t seem to be a day that goes by without someone discovering a new use for used coffee grounds, and today is no different.

Used coffee grounds are now being used as a beauty product, specifically for your face and hair. The grounds are set to be used to get rid of puffy eyes and also exfoliate your face. The method in which to do this is to let your coffee grounds dry out in a paper towel, then mix with a small amount of water to create a coarse paste. Smear the paste under your eyes and leave for 15 minutes. Wash off and you’ll have non puffy eyes, apparently. The grounds can also be mixed with coconut oil and used and a facial scrub. The paste can also be used as a shampoo which is said to strip your hair clean of any build up of oil, other hair products etc. and leave your hair sleek and clean.

Whether or not this actually is true and works as well as it says, it is always great to see so many different innovations being created from what is essentially a waste product.
