Coffee is packed full of anti-oxidants and anti-bacterial properties making it the perfect ingredient to apply to skin. What better way of making use of those used coffee grounds?
Coffee and almond face scrub
Method: Combine 1 cup of used coffee grounds, ½ cup of brown sugar, ½ cup of almond oil and a few drops of vitamin E oil. Apply to clean skin, leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Store in an air-tight container and use within a month.
Tip: Switch the brown sugar for less abrasive coconut sugar for a gentler scrub.
Coffee and coconut body scrub
Caffeine stimulates blood flow which can diminish the appearance of cellulite and leave skin looking brighter.
Method: Combine 1 cup of used coffee grounds, ½ cup of coconut sugar and ½ cup of coconut oil. Use in the shower by scrubbing onto skin in a circular motion and rinsing. Store in an air-tight container and use within a month.
Tip: Be extra careful in the shower or bath when using any oil based products as they will make it slippery.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please ensure you are not allergic or intolerant to any ingredients before applying them to your skin. If irritation occurs, wash off immediately. When in doubt, do not use. Avoid contact with your eyes.
