DIY Coffee Sugar Scrub

This week I decided to take my love for coffee to the next level and make my own Coffee Sugar Scrub. According to health experts, coffee can help with the following:

1) diminish the appearance of cellulite
2) tighten and tone the look of your skin
3) serve as an exfoliant when you use the grounds as a scrub

Plus, coffee is naturally a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory so it’s the perfect thing to add to your face and body scrub. In this recipe, I used coconut oil instead of Olive oil for its moisturizing benefits among a long list of thing coconut oil is good for. This is all natural and a serious wake-up for your skin! So find a container and get to mixing ladies.

You’ll need:

  1. 3 tbsp coffee grounds (any will do, either fresh or pre-used)
  2. 1 tbsp sugar (something finer so it’s not too harsh on your skin)
  3. 2 tbsp oil (coconut -melted- or olive)

Directions:

Just mix it all up, simple right? Store in an air-tight container and viola! All done. Enjoy
