DIY Coffee Body Scrub

Coffee is good for waking you up in the morning, but did you know that coffee can wake up your skin too? Some of the coolest things coffee can do when applied to the skin are:

  1. Coffee minimises the appearance of cellulite!
  2. Its a great exfoliator for the skin
  3. Leaves the skin looking smooth and bright!
  4. Reduces puffiness of the skin – great for treating under-eye bags!
  5. Contains anti-oxidants that benefit the skin

Great news, its pretty easy to involve coffee into your regular skin care routine. It can be converted into a great scrub that will leave your skin feeling glowing and healthy.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of freshly ground coffee
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of Olive oil [a little bit less will do]
