Exfoliating your skin is essential to keep it healthy, smooth, and glowing. It removes blackheads and dead skin, and allows a better blood flow which will make your skin look younger and brighter. There is nothing better to exfoliate your skin with than a homemade and 100% natural face scrub – completely without toxins (who would want those on their face?). This coffee scrub is full of natural benefits that will make your skin look the best and ingredients that you probably already have in your house!
This coffee scrub is made of only four ingredients – coffee ground, brown sugar, salt, and olive oil.
Coffee, applied to your skin, has amazing benefits. It can reduce under eye dark circles and puffiness due to a better blood flow and it brightens your skin. It also is full of antioxidants, which fight premature aging, and has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and inflammation
Olive oil helps to promote skin’s elasticity, keeps it moisturized, treats skin irritations and sunburn, and since it’s rich in healthy fats and phenolic antioxidants it helps to get rid of free radicals which age your skin and make it look dull.
The salt in the scrub acts to fully exfoliate the skin and remove any dead skin cells, dirt, and blackheads, and to increase the circulation. It also acts anti-inflammatory and encourages the growth of healthy new cells. This regeneration tightens the skin and gives it a firmer look.
Last, the brown sugar, which is much gentler than white sugar, is full of glycolic acid which helps to maintain a healthy skin. It can also reduce body acne and help to achieve more of its natural balance.
How to make:
Simply combine all the ingredients with a spoon in a bowl until the mixture is smooth. Then, transfer to a mason jar, canned glass, or plastic container and store refrigerated. You can use the scrub 1-2 times per week.
Also, you can substitute the olive oil with coconut oil or almond oil.
