Anyone that knows me, can tell you how much I love my coffee. I love the taste, the aroma & the benefits of slathering it on my skin. Wait, what?! Yep, you read that right. Coffee makes an excellent body scrub for a couple of reasons...
•Ground coffee will act as an exfoliant to dead skin cells, which will leave your skin silky smooth.
•The caffeine in coffee will draw water from your cells & help to constrict your blood vessels, leaving you with a smooth & even tone. Translation: Bye-bye cellulite.
To make this Coffee Body Scrub, you just need three simple ingredients.
•brown, white or raw sugar
•ground coffee (unused)
•coconut, jojoba or olive oil
For a thicker texture (like mine), use a 3:2:1 ratio of ingredients (in order given).
For a creamier texture, use a 3:2:2 or 3:2:3 ratio.
But of course you can always alter the ratios to your liking. Or based on how much coffee you have in the house. Because let's face it, we all have those "oh crap" moments when we realize we only have enough left for one cup in the morning.
