I don’t blog about beauty as I don’t think I have a lot to say about it. As today the topic for Blog everyday in November is “Beauty”, I thought this is the perfect opportunity to share my easy, cheap, homemade coffee body scrub.
Years ago I saw that a celebrity was making a face mask with used coffee grounds and I wanted to give it a try. I can’t remember which celebrity was using it, but I’ve been hooked ever since. I find the used coffee grounds are moisturizing and leave my skin very smooth after using it.
To make this scrub mix 4 teaspoons of used coffee grounds with 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of shower gel. It’s that easy to make it.
As it’s a scrub and the sugar can be quite abrasive it shouldn’t be used very often, only once or twice per week.
Do you make your own scrubs or do you prefer buying them? Tell me your recipes in the comments.
