Calling All My Coffee Loving Dolls!!
Finally, there's something good you can do for your body with coffee!!!! Coffee detoxifies and tightens the skin and is also known as an anti-cellulite agent!!! Bet you didn't know that! The ground beans can also exfoliate, reduce fine lines and fight off acne! Follow this easy recipe below (that can be prepared with ingredients that don't cost much and you might even have some of them at home already!):
1 1/2 cups Cane Sugar (For those with sensitive skin, you may want to use pure cane sugar because it's less abrasive on your skin)
1/4 cups Ground Coffee
1/4 cups Shredded Coconut
3/4 cups Macadamia Nut Oil or Olive Oil
1 tsp. Honey
3-5 drops of any essential oil of your choice
Mix sugar, ground coffee, coconut and oil in a bowl until well combined.
Add honey followed by the essential oil.
Transfer the mixture into a plastic container with a lid (The mix will stay good for 1 to 2 weeks sealed at room temperature!!!)
Rub a generous scoop of the scrub all over your arms, legs, stomach, chest and bottom, scrubbing medium to hard depending on how sensitive you are. (Note: Skin should be moist when you apply this scrub)
Rinse off in the shower under warm to hot water, making sure the sugar crystals disintegrate completely.
Pat dry to ensure the oils soak into your skin.
When you are done your skin will be soft, tight and glowing AND the oils will turn your bathroom into a heavenly spa because of the essential oils mixed with the heat from the shower!!
Hope you all enjoy this scrub as much as I do!!!
