Today I felt like my skin needs some exfoliating so I’ve made a homemade scrub. As it is very very cold outside I did not feel like going outside. So I look around my kitchen and choose 3 of the most common and efficient ingredients when it comes to body scrubs: coffee, sugar and coconut oil.
As long as you have sugar or salt in your kitchen then you can easily combine one of them with some oil to moisturize your skin and you got yourself an efficient and very cheap scrub.
Here are the quantities I’ve used to make a jar of the coffee sugar scrub:
- 1 cup coffee;
- 1 cup white sugar;
- 1/2 cup coconut oil.
I’ve just mixed all this ingredients in a bowl and voila, in less than 5 minutes, I’ve made myself a wonderful treat!
Beside exfoliating (sugar) and moisturizing (coconut oil) your skin, this coffee sugar scrub also help you diminish the appearance of cellulite (due to caffeine).
The scrub has a great texture: it is not to oily (the coconut oil will be absorbed very fast in your skin) and will feel wonderful on your skin.
The coffee sugar scrub is a classic scrub, but a very efficient one: with only 3 ingredients you get 3 benefits for your skin: exfoliating, moisturizing and anti-cellulite effect.
