Deep Exfoliating Coffee Scrub
1 part ground coffee
1 part sea salt or sugar
2 parts coconut oil
small reusable container
Now listen up, this is not brain surgery. The ingredients do not have to be exact, just as long as you have more coconut oil than coffee and sugar. You will know your mixture is perfect when all the ingredients combine into a smooth paste.
*Be warned: this scrub does not look appetizing, but it smells DIVINE*
Use all over your body and face in the shower, letting it sit for up to a minute. Rinse off and enjoy the skin you're in. You can use this scrub up to twice a week, but no more than that or your skin will damage and dry out. Put whatever is leftover in the reusable container, and save for up to three weeks.
I did a little research and found that the caffeine in the coffee helps diminish and fade cellulite, stretch marks, and dark spots. The combination of the grounds and the sugar/salt also help provide a deep exfoliation to remove dead skin and build up in your pores. To top it all off, the coconut oil is one of the best natural moisturizers out there. After using this scrub, you will not remember the last time your skin felt so soft. This has now become one of my favorite beauty staples, and I had all the ingredients in my pantry. In other words, I got to feel pampered for FREE.
