Coffee scrubs are an awesome and affordable way for anyone to maintain the condition of their skin during the blistering cold of London Winter. Many people claim different things about it, like that it is an effective way to get rid of cellulite, now I could not care less about that because I think everyone should be comfortable in the skin they are in. But I will not lie, after a body scrub your skin does feel incredibly revitalised and in the morning it really helps to get your blood circulation on point.
ORRR.. an inexpensive and lovingly handmade Christmas gift
Feel free to play around with the ingredients and substitute things when desired, I usually keep mine in a sealed jar for two weeks.
¼ cup of brown sugar (or salt)
1/4 cup of coconut oil (olive oil and avocado oil work just as well)
¼ cup of coffee grounds (you can add more if you want a harsher exfoliant)
1 tbs. Ground cinnamon (optional)
1tbs. vanilla extract (optional)
Throw everything in and give it a good mix, voila!
PRO TIP: go to your friendly local neighbourhood cafe and ask if you can have their grounds at the end of the day 🙂
