You may want to think twice before you go splurge on an expensive body scrub
Meet our Homemade Body Coffee Scrub — A great way to not only find a purpose for your brewed coffee grounds but also smooth, soften and invigorate your skin. Why coffee grounds you ask? The grainy texture of coffee grounds makes a great and gentle exfoliant. The grounds work to gently remove dead skin cells, which helps to rejuvenate skin and boost circulation.
We fine-tuned this mixture into an easy-to-make scrub and we’re pretty sure you already have the ingredients in your pantry.
Homemade Body Coffee Scrub
- 4 tbsp brewed (leftover coffee grounds)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp honey
- Mix all the ingredients into a plastic container to make it bathroom safe. Stand in your shower or bathtub with shower fixture and on completely dry skin, scoop desired amount of scrub into your hand and gently scrub on your arms, hands, and legs.
- While standing, run warm water and rinse off. Be careful when rinsing off the scrub as the oil could make the bottom of your bathtub or shower slippery. Follow with your usual shower wash or cleansing routine. Your skin will be soft and smooth when you’re finished
A few quick notes: Please mix the scrub into a plastic container to avoid possible breakage in the shower or bathroom. Also, the oil in the scrub could possibly make your tub slippery so be careful when rinsing and give your shower a good rinse after you get out!
