If you haven’t already seen the flood on social media about the newest beauty trend, you may find it a little unusual to rub ground coffee beans on your body instead of sipping them in your iced latte.
Unfortunately these coffee scrubs can run a little pricey, but here is an awesome, affordable recipe that I have tested and now can’t shower without. The ingredients in this scrub are ideal for achieving smooth, soft and glowing skin. The coffee, sea salt and brown sugar help exfoliate your skin while coconut, vitamin E and jojoba oils replenish and soften head to toe. The best part about this scrub is that the caffeine from the coffee helps stimulate blood flow and tighten skin, leaving a firm and youthful appearance.
- 3 cups ground coffee of you choice
- 1 cup coconut flakes
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil (cooled or melted)
- 2 tablespoons vitamin e oil
- 1 tablespoon jojoba oil
Mix all your ingredients together until you get a consistent pasty, scrub-like texture. Because this is a larger batch, you may want to blend the ingredients in smaller sections and combine at the end to ensure you have an even mixture.
This scrub also makes the perfect DIY gift. This recipe definitely makes a batch large enough to share the love with your friends and family!
