Que tal peeps!
When you think of your bestie what is one of the top things your bestie does for you? When I think of my bestie I know she makes sure that I am looking good, and that is what coffee can do for you (unless you are allergic). Coffee can have so many benefits for our skin and help us have that natural beauty beat.
During the summer you want your skin to be flawless and and have that natural beat! By adding coffee grounds to your body scrubs will help you get that healthy soft youthful skin.
Benefits of Coffee for Skin

- Reduce cellulite, so you can have youthful looking skin!
- Good for promoting blood circulation
- Good for tightening the skin and giving you a more toned appearance
- Can be used for brightening the skin to give you a healthy glow
- Can be used for reducing dark circles
- Great to give you the awake look by reducing eye puffiness!
DIY Coffee Scrub
Making a coffee scrub is super easy and simple. You actually can make one up while you are brewing your morning coffee. All you need is coffee and an oil of choice. I would suggest using small fine grounds, and a good amount of oil if you are using this scrub on your face to prevent over exfoliating your face.
I have a recipe for a luxury coffee scrub that I use all over my body.
Ingredients (The amount will vary depending on how you like your scrub)
- Shea butter
- Cocoa butter
- Apricot Oil
- Coffee grounds
You would melt the butters and then add the honey. Then mix those in a bowl until the ingredients are blended well. Then add the coffee grounds.
I would suggest that you make this more of a face polish if you are using this on your face. You would want more liquid than dry ingredients. However, if you are using this just for your body I would suggest using more coffee grounds.
If you would like to buy coffee scrubs there are some good ones out there on the market. Buddy Coffee Body Scrub is sold at Ulta for $15.00. Shea Moisture also has a large selection of coffee scrubs.
