I’m not a coffee drinker but you know how much I like making skincare products with stuff from my kitchen presses. I opened the cupboard the other day to look for inspiration and on front of me stood this lonely bag of ground coffee beans – unloved and getting old!
I decided to incorporate them into a scrub that I could use in the shower. Although I don’t like the taste of coffee I do love the smell so I was excited about this little mini project. Coffee is said to be good for stimulating lymphatic drainage – I can’t testify to that but it’s a common ingredient in anti-cellulite products.
- 2 cups of ground coffee
- Half cup of cup or granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons oil (Olive oil, grapeseed, almond etc)
Mix all the ingredients together and massage into damp, warm skin. You could store left overs in a jar and keep in the fridge for use later in the week. It’s that simple!
It does look a little messy but you’re in the shower when you apply so getting messy is part of the fun. The scrub leaves your skin silky smooth.
Finally, I have a use for coffee!
