Tantric, Coffee massages are the new ‘must have’ in the world of erotic massage. Sensual and uplifting, masseuses have developed a way to perform this classic massage with the aid of coffee based products known to rejuvenate the skin.

Once the skin has been scrubbed, coffee based oil or lubricant is drizzled all over the body in preparation for the Best Tantric massage service in London to come.
But this poses the question: If we don’t consume the coffee, how do we obtain all of its benefits? Well, I am here to tell you why.
Coffee is good for your face
Although coffee is regarded as unhealthy in many respects, its actually known for being great for the skin, believe it or not. Caffeine actually reduces skin inflammation across the body but is particularly good for the face. As well as brightening the face, coffee softens lines, prevents clogged pores and acts as a chemical exfoliator. Similarly, if you suffer from puffy under-eyes, using a coffee-based eye cream could be just what you to resolve the problem. The eyes are lymphatic channels that drain poorly, meaning eyes often appear puffy when water becomes trapped. When coffee is applied to the skin, it dehydrates and constricts blood vessels, aiding the channels to drain more efficiently. This reduces the appearance of dark circles and minimises puffiness.
It reduces the risk of cancer
Ever stayed out in the sun a little too long on your summer holiday and been left red raw? Most of us have at one point, and it usually comes down to the fact he haven’t applied enough suntan lotion. However, according to a 2011 study, scientists have discovered that coffee can actually protect the skin from sun damage. When applied to burn-prone areas of the body, caffeine helps to protect against the skin cancer at a molecular level by constraining a protein enzyme in the skin. Essentially, this minimises the chance of skin burning.
Improves your sense of smell
Ever been for a fancy meal in a Michelin start restaurant and had sorbet between courses? Well, just like sorbet, coffee beans can actually act as a palette cleanser for the nose. Just like the body and mind, the nose can tire, making the sense of smell less poignant. However, researches at the University of California have determined that the smell of coffee prevents nose fatigue, heightening the sense as a whole. No wonder we all love the smell of coffee so much!

It causes insomnia
Most people consume coffee throughout the day because it up’s our energy levels and makes us more alert. However, these effects don’t just disappear when the sun goes down, far from it. When consumed in excess, coffee is renowned for causing sleep deprivation. Lack of sleep effects performance in all walks of life and is closely linked with stress, anxiety and depression. Getting between 6-8 hours of sleep per night is imperative when it comes to brain function, but coffee hinders us from switching off when the lights go out. Although drinking coffee has this impact, using coffee based creams and oils on the skin does not.
