Homemade coffee body scrub

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, home-made 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 moisturising and leave my skin very smooth after using it.

01 Homemade coffee body scrub

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.

  1. I’ve never used my own scrub but I’ve heard great things about them! I want to make my own lip scrub one day. I’ll probably eat it.

    1. I want to try to make more recipes, but this one is so easy and I always have used coffee grounds :))

  2. This is perfect for me as I drink quite a lot of coffee and end up with tons on coffee grounds! Sometimes I give them to my plants but I still end up with loads leftover and I don’t have a compost heap, unfortunately. Thanks for sharing this, Anca 🙂 x
