Coffee Body Scrub
I love coffee, especially the smell and I start every day with a lovely cup of black organic coffee made in my trusty bean to cup Gaggia coffee machine, which means that I have a lot of used coffee grounds to make use of!
I hate waste and like to put everything to good use and it just so happens that coffee grounds are great for clearing cellulite!
So this simple scrub costs pennies to make and has dual function, it naturally exfoliates and moisturises the skin and the lovely smell of coffee wakes you up in the morning! Don't use your best extra virgin olive oil for this, any oil will do, I tend to use olive oil.
I like to add a few drops of vanilla essential oil to mine but you don't have to, its great as it is!
One word of warning, it does make a mess of the shower!
So here is the simple recipe
Simply mix the ingredients together. I reuse a glass jar to mix and store it in, just be careful you don't drop it in the shower! Add more sugar and/or more coffee grounds for a more exfoliating scrub. This is too harsh to use on your face so you can make a gentler scrub with softer brown sugar and add a tablespoon honey instead of the coffee grounds!
Just use a handful of the scrub on dry skin and massage it in for a minute or so, it really gets your circulation going, then just rinse it off. Your skin will be soft and moisturised!
Dry skin brushing before you go into the shower will also help to boost circulation and get your lymph moving!
So put your coffee grounds to good use in your morning routine, your skin will thank you!!
......your health in your hands....
