DIY COCONUT COFFEE SCRUB

Sunday, June 29, 2014



Have your coffee and exfoliate too! This mouthwatering coconut coffee scrub will slough away dead skin while deeply bringing moisture back into the dermal layer, giving all skin types that extra boost for a healthy glow. Caffeine breaks down fat cells and significantly tones, firms, and reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. Coconut oil heals dry, flakey skin, leaving it feeling smooth, supple, and hydrated. Not only does coconut oil help treat eczema, psoriasis, and acne, but also it's a non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog pores! Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies, so it’s important to give it the attention it deserves. Start by trying this coconut coffee scrub, for refreshing and rejuvenating results.

directions:
  • warm up 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • stir in coffee grounds until satisfied with consistency
  • apply scrub to area desired, and use upward strokes in circular motions
  • leave on skin for 10-15 minutes and remove with warm water

add to scrub according to skincare concerns:

argan oil is high in vitamin E, which helps revive dull and dehydrated skin while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Audrey refers to this oil as "liquid heaven."

peppermint oil has many healing and nourishing properties, and also delivers a cooling sensation to help calm, inflamed, or irritated skin.
honey is a natural cleanser and spot treatment, minimizes the appearance of scars, and improves the skins ability to maintain elasticity and softness. 

cinnamon acts as a natural antiseptic, as well as a stimulant, which gives the skin a "plumped" effect.

sugar works as a gentle exfoliator and protects skin against toxins, without clogging pores, resulting in ultimate radiance. 



tips and advice:
  • store scrub in an airtight sealed container for longevity up to 6 months
  • 1-3 treatments weekly for best results
  • after brewing coffee, stir in used coffee grounds from filter for a dual-purpose!
  • this scrub can be used on the face, if used gently
