Let’s face it coffee is what gets most of us up in the mornings. Now we have a new way to get our fix with this DIY Coffee Sugar Scrub that will smooth your skin minus the coffee jitters.
While I prefer it with almond milk and agave nectar, (really? cream and sugar would be much more poetic) I’ve found that it also makes a really great body scrub.
You can find versions of coffee scrubs in most beauty departments but I really love to make my own (and it’s a great way to use up the leftover coffee grounds). It’s so easy and only takes 3 ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
What you’ll need:
- coffee grounds
- sugar (I used turbinado)
- coconut oil (melted)
The amounts you use will depend on how much you want. I recommend going easy on the oil or your mix will get too runny.
Put coffee grounds and sugar into a mixing bowl.
For the coffee grounds you can either use fresh grounds or use your leftover grounds from this mornings coffee.
Heat the coconut oil over a medium low heat until just melted.
Remove from heat and pour over your coffee grounds and sugar.
Mix until all ingredients are mixed together.
Use in the shower.
Rub into your skin in a circular motion and make sure to rinse thoroughly.
This scrub smells so great and I find it to be really invigorating. Kinda like a second cup of coffee!
According to the “experts” (a.k.a. random blogs and websites, you know where we get all our information), a coffee scrub is really great for circulation and the temporary appearance or disappearance of cellulite. Any scrub, including a coffee scrub, will make your skin smooth and silky. Plus the coconut oil is a great moisturizer and small amounts will help to improve the look of your skin.
While I’m not an expert on this topic, I do know how my skin feels after using it and it feels amazing! Not to mention it really smells great!
