•Perk up your skin with a DIY coffee scrub.
Make this invigorating body scrub from simple pantry ingredients in mere minutes.
If you’re a coffee lover, the idea of using precious coffee beans in a body scrub might shock you, but give this DIY product a shot—you’ll be glad you did! Coffee scrubs aren’t just for exfoliation and boosting circulation. The caffeine in the beans can also plump and tighten your skin, helping reduce the appearance of cellulite. Plus, the coconut oil will leave your skin silky smooth.
Coffee Body Scrub
Mix together 1/2 cup fresh ground coffee and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Pour 1/2 cup melted coconut oil into the coffee mixture, then add 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. Makes 4 applications.
To use, gently rub the mixture over your body. Leave it on for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly. (Be careful if using the scrub in the shower, as the oil can make the floor a bit slippery.)
