Coffee Body Scrub

My morning ritual involves a nice cup of coffee. Sometimes I enjoy it hot and somedays I love it iced. Irregardless, coffee is always flowing.

I used spent coffee grounds to make this delicious smelling body scrub. I’ve spent a bit of time at the pool this summer and my skin needs a good exfoliation.

This scrub has a terrific texture to comfortably rid yourself of rough spots. Not to mention the smell is intoxicating. The caffeine in coffee is a natural antioxidant, so this scrub is actually doing your cells some good too. Another bonus of caffeine, is it temporarily tightens skin. Oh yeah!!

Coffee Body Scrub: (Adapted from Lidl Grocery magazine)

  • 1/2 cup ground coffee
  • 2 Tbsp liquified coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar

Mix all ingredients until well combined and store in an airtight container. (Mason jars are perfect to hold DIY beauty supplies.)

*Apply a dollop while showering in a circular motion to stimulate the skin and help remove dead skin/rough spots. This scrub is awesome for tired mornings as the coffee smell is very invigorating.

This scrub has quickly become a favorite of mine and is a great way to recycle spent coffee grounds.

Shout out to my wonderful friend, Emilie, who made this awesome wooden background.

Thanks for reading! xo
