Making this coffee scrub could not be easier! It takes a few minutes to assemble and requires four simple ingredients. Coffee is rich in potent antioxidants and diuretic compounds, which can contribute to increasing blood flow to the skin, evening out its tone, and reducing cellulite. Brown sugar is a popular ingredient in homemade body scrubs thanks to its non-abrasive exfoliating properties. It also contains glycolic acid known for promoting healthy and glowing skin. Coconut oil, on the other hand, is capable of penetrating skin layers, leaving it soft and well moisturized. At last, the addition of cinnamon to this coffee scrub recipe gives it a solid protection against microbial infections responsible for skin breakouts and acne.
- Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well to combine.(2 minutes)
- Transfer to an air-tight glass container and store at room temperature.(1 minute)
Use this coffee sugar scrub three times a week while taking a shower or bath. Apply it directly to wet skin, gently rubbing it in a circular motion. Leave it on the skin for a few minutes, then rinse it with warm water.
For best results, follow this exfoliation routine with a natural moisturizer, such as skin-softening milk and honey lotion with oats or nourishing lavender carrot lotion with apricot oil.
