I’m back this week with a beauty recipe. As you beauties already know I love a good body scrub. Nothing makes my body feel better than a good scrub down. Which leads me to my DIY Coffee, Coconut Oil and Honey scrub. This body scrub will help slough away dead skin cells, deeply nourish your skin and will leave you with a radiant, glowing complexion. My face and body feels so smooth and soft. I love that I can use this scrub year round. The instant brightening, smoothing and line minimizing effects lasts for hours! I love it.
Coconut oil has and will forever be the top beauty favorite everywhere. You can use coconut oil for almost anything. I love adding it in my body scrubs and mask. Coconut oil has so many healthy benefits for our hair and skin care.
The next ingredient is Honey. Honey is natural antibacterial. It’s known to be great for acne prevention and treatment. Honey is full of antioxidants, slows down aging. I love using honey personally because it’s great for complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, and helps create a beautiful glow. It’s also great to mask and body scrubs.
Last and key ingredient is Coffee. I had no idea that caffeine in coffee grounds is a great way to reduce cellulite. Caffeine absorbs into your skin and dehydrates the fluid in those irksome cellulite areas. It temporarily makes your skin tighter and firmer. Coffee also is a rich source of antioxidants that protects our skin from those free radicals that are harmful to our skin. It’s also known to help stimulate the skin and improve blood flow to the face. This will promote overall cell health which helps our skin look radiant and bright.
Here’s what to do:
- 1/2 cup very finely ground coffee
- 1/4 Coconut Oil
- 3 Tablespoons honey
Combine the ingredients.
To use: You should wet your hands or a damp wash cloth. Scoop a small amount out of the jar. Apply in a circular motion to wet skin. Rinse thoroughly. Be sure to wash away any grounds from the floor of your shower so they don’t stain.
Sidebar: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month (refrigeration isn’t necessary but you can make ice cube scrubs to help portion them out).
You can use this mask and scrubs 2-3 times a week.
I hope you enjoyed this blog!
