Many of you are probably coffee drinkers and can appreciate its wonderful taste and energizing power aka caffeine. But what you may not know is that coffee grounds can be added to your face and hand scrubs as it is wonderful for exfoliating your skin! Coffee grounds are easy enough for everyone to get their hands on and make for a fantastic natural beauty product.
Coffee contains caffeic acid, which has anti-inflammatory effects and can boost collagen production. Coffee can stimulate our skin just as well as it stimulates your body and mind in the morning as well as helps to reduce cellulite! Who would not want to give this a try knowing your body will thank you, and your confidence will sky rocket!
To make the scrub all that you have to do is simply combine 2 cups of ground coffee beans, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix them all together in a bowl before using.
It is known that coffee tightens, rejuvenates and exfoliates skin, while brown sugar exfoliates as well and olive oil moisturizes.
Apply the concoction to wet skin in the shower in a circular motion all over your body. Discard any leftover scrub and make a fresh batch for each use. I like to also add Vanilla for a sweet smell and heady aroma. If you are applying the scrub to your face, do so very gently in comparison to other areas of the body such as the knees and elbows.
Enjoy and happy exfoliating,
