DIY Coffee Grounds Body Scrub
Summer is almost here and if you haven’t helped your body shed the dead skin layer yet, now’s the time
Exfoliation is key to maintaining healthy skin and that does not only go for your face, but also for your body. Mechanical body scrubs can refresh your skin nearly in an instant and this one is my go-to DIY body scrub, as it is easy to make, all natural, very effective, smells great and it has a touch of a recycling-note to it.
I’m almost sure you already have all the ingredients for this simple DIY body scrub at home. And as an additional plus, the main ingredient is coffee grounds, so you can recycle the leftovers from your morning pot of joy.
This is how you make the body scrub:
Take 2 tablespoons coffee grounds and mix it with 1½ tablespoon coconut oil (melted) and ½ teaspoon honey. Mix the three ingredients together nicely and voila, your coffee grounds body scrub is done. Use it while in the shower and apply it with circular motions on a bit damp skin. The coffee grounds will not just exfoliate the skin but the remaining caffeine in the grounds will wake up your skin and stimulate the blood circulation. The other two ingredients will nourish you skin, so it’s not just smooth but left soft and glowing.
- 2 tablespoons coffee grounds
- 1½ tablespoon coconut oil (room temperature)
- ½ teaspoon honey
Let your smooth skin glow in the summer sun!
