Coffee is one of my favorite ingredients for a body scrub. The caffeine in coffee has been known to diminish the appearance of cellulite and tighten and tone your skin. The coffee grounds can also act as an excellent exfoliant when gently rolled over the skin. Get your skin glowing for summer with this simple coffee scrub!
1/4 cup unused ground coffee
1/4 cup sugar
3 tbsps *apricot, grapeseed, almond or olive oil
*Apricot is my favorite.
While in shower, gently roll scrub over skin. If possible let the scrub sit on the skin for a minute or so. Rinse thoroughly. Be careful as the oil in the scrub can make the surface of your tub slippery. Another word of caution – A LOT of coffee grounds have to go down the drain and the coffee grains get EVERYWHERE. Totally worth it but be prepared!
Never use a scrub on damaged or irritated skin.
