If you love the smell of coffee… this one’s for you. 🙂 Beyond the smell, and the extra intense exfoliating properties, the caffeine in the coffee helps reduce cellulite. Also, it turns out that coffee grounds are an old remedy for keeping drains running clear. That’s a win win situation all around!
Directions: In the shower, wash first as usual, then stir the mixture with your finger and place a quarter-size amount in your hand and apply it directly to your skin, spreading it while briskly scrubbing in a circular motion. Sugar Scrubs may be used on your face, feet, upper arms, etc. Rinse off with warm water before getting out of the shower. Dry off your skin gently afterwards. Please be sure to rinse extra well with coffee scrubs so that no coffee grounds stick to your skin.
Ingredients: white sugar, coffee, olive oil, and vanilla extract
Three Benefits of Sugar Scrubs:
1. Sugar draws moisture from the environment into the skin and help to hydrate skin and keep moisture within.
2. Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid which helps to break up skin cells and encourages new cell growth which leaves the skin fresher and younger-looking.
3. The small particles in sugar make it an excellent, gentle exfoliant of dead surface skin cells which when removed reveal the healthy-looking skin underneath
