Young People in Business: Kimberly Tahal beautifies with coffee

Exfoliating is an essential part of skin care but with so many products on the line, sometimes it may be difficult to choose which one is right for you.

It’s long been known that using natural and organic products will do wonders for the skin and body and Kimberly Roopchan-Tahal is offering just that with her newly launched product, My Coffee Scrub.

Most of us people love drinking coffee, but may not know that the grounds are a great exfoliant for the face, body, and feet.

“Non-toxic skin care products are more effective simply because they are made with ingredients that don’t disrupt your body natural state,” Kimberly said. “Coffee grounds are a mechanical exfoliate and can be used to scrub away dead skin to reveal new and healthy skin. The caffeine from the coffee increases blood flow and reduces the appearance of cellulite it also has anti-inflammatory properties that help with the redness of skin.”

Although only 20 years old, Kimberly already has built the portfolio. With training under Madame Maharaj School of Cosmetology, she has worked as a cosmetologist for the last three years and has worked alongside Body Art by James Paul.

She took a break and gave birth last year and was home with a lot of free time on her hands, she said. She had been making scrubs since she was about 16 years old, but mostly for family and friends. They were the ones, along with her husband, who pushed her to start selling.

She started an Instagram page and intended to just sell samples but the demands were instantaneous. Within a month of starting My Coffee Scrubs, she had over 100 hundred orders.

My Coffee Scrub may only be a month old, but has already gotten the attention of a spa and local retailers and is currently in negotiations.

“It’s like a dream come true. I started off so small and I wasn’t expecting things to take off as quickly as they did. I wasn’t expecting anyone from a spa to want my products,” Kimberly said.

“I hope one day in the future my product can be recognised worldwide because I believe in my product. With God and my family beside me, I know that my coffee scrub will one day be a great product on the market.”
