DIY COFFEE SCRUBS

If you wake up to a fresh cup of coffee every morning and love the smell and how that caffeine gives you that boost for the day you might love a coffee scrub.

Why Coffee?
Coffee is rich with antioxidants and a great anti-inflammatory agent. Coffee combined with salt and/or brown sugar is a great exfoliator and the caffeine works to tighten the skin.

coffee-body-scrub-331 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup Himalayan Pink Salt and/or brown sugar
1/4-avocado oil/coconut oil/grapeseed oil/olive oil/almond oil

Combine ingredients in a small bowl. You get to play with how much or how little you want to make or the combinations you care to use. I prefer a heavier oil like avocado but I love the combination of the coconut oil scent mixed with the coffee. Invigorating!

I use this scrub on my whole body and face so I apply it while I’m in the shower it is a bit messy so applying over the sink is a no go for me. The oil from the scrub helps moisturize the skin and makes it feel so smooth. Coffee scrubs really helps  with the excema I occasionally get in the winter months on my chest and back-I will leave out the salt in the mix when I apply it on those areas.

When I don’t feel like tracking down the perfect ground coffee I buy the scrub online at Frank Body.

I would love to hear any feedback/reviews on any of these home skincare suggestions if you try them. Healthy firm skin is something we all strive for, especially as we get older and I feel these natural solutions are a smart and less expensive solution to our woes.
