This scrub and face mask in one is a great perk-me-up and a trusty favourite of mine. It is easy to make, you probably have the ingredients at home and you can keep it in a jar for use whenever you want. I use it as a body scrub before i hop in the shower twice a week or else as an energising facial in the morning. Its a great exfoliator and moisturiser in one. It smells really nice too, if you like the aroma of coffee.
Here is what you need to make a small to medium size jar:
2 BOWLS, ONE MICROWAVABLE
1/2 CUP OF COFFEE GROUNDS
1/2 CUP OF BROWN SUGAR
1/4 CUP OF COCONUT OIL*
SML/MED SIZE JAR WITH A LID
*You can also use olive oil for dry skin
Mix together the brown sugar and coffee
Heat the coconut oil for 10-15 seconds in the microwave until melted
Add all ingredients together and mix well with a fork
As a face mask i leave on for 2-6mins
This is perfect timing to do before your shower while the water is running and i usually do a body brush before applying all over
Then i hop in the shower and massage it in as much as i can before rinsing it off completely
Its a great energising and revitalising scrub and it makes the skin feel soft and improves the appearance in general
This scrub is especially good for cellulite apparently, since coffee is often recommended for it. I don’t seem to have any that i can see and I’m sure i had some before.
Hope this works as well for you as it does for me!
I’ll be adding more scrub recipes soon so stay tuned
