This coffee scrub has taken Instagram by storm! But when I was about to buy some I found it was actually very simple to make and it still produces great results! This scrub only requires a few ingredients you probably already have in your house and exfoliates and tightens your body! Warning: since it contains caffeine it might give you a slight caffeine buzz since you’re applying directly to your skin- so with that said I recommend doing it a couple hours before bedtime or in the morning to wake you up. I love how this scrub contains all natural and even some organic ingredients! I love how it leaves my skin feeling super soft, moisturized and smooth.
1/2 cup of ground coffee
-1/2 cup coconut sugar
-1 teaspoon of cinnamon
-2 drops of vitamin e oil
-1/4 cup of coconut oil ( melt if its solid)
– optional 1 drop of almond oil
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together and your scrub is ready! Store in an airtight container such as a mason jar. When you are ready to use the scrub lightly hydrate the areas you want to apply the scrub to ( for face run cool water over your face and leave face slightly moist before applying the scrub.) Scrub in small circular motions and leave scrub to dry. For best results leave on 5-10 minutes until dry and then rinse off with cool water. Follow with mild face wash to remove excess oil if desired.
Because its made with natural ingredients its safe to use this scrub 2-4x a week. If you have any skin sensitivities normally, patch test on skin first before applying the scrub to your whole body just to be safe.
