For this reason, I’ve decided to share my coffee scrub recipe. As a devoted coffee drinker, I always have a fresh supply of used coffee grounds handy. (Another great way to use coffee grounds is as a fertilizer for your basement garden.)
My coffee body scrub will not only exfoliate your skin, it may even help you eliminate cellulite by “waking up” your skin’s natural metabolism or….. something. Truthfully, I don’t understand the science behind it.
As always, use substitutions liberally here!
½ cup used coffee grounds
2 tablespoons sugar (salt can be a substitute)
1 ½ tablespoons Vitamin E oil (coconut oil works too)
1 tablespoon almond oil (substitute: olive oil)
How to do it:
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, stir.
- In the bath (or shower if you are lucky enough to have running water) scrub all over your body, taking care to scrub extra hard on cellulite trouble zones and dry places.
- Rinse thoroughly
After all, if beauty is on the inside, why not remove a layer of epidermis to make it more visible?
Your never scaly,
PS: This recipe works great in conjunction with my hair masque recipe for a fantastic spa day!
