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.
