Coffee scrubs are a gentle exfoliant – perfect for removing dead skin. It improves blood circulation, reduces inflammation, and rejuvenates and energizes your skin.
• ½ cup coffee grounds
• 2 Tbsp. hot water
• 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, warmed
Add coffee grounds and hot water to a small bowl. Mix thoroughly. Stir in coconut oil and mix until it becomes a good consistency to apply to the skin. Gently smooth over skin in circular motions. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
• When applying a face mask, try to avoid placing the mask or scrub near the eyes.
• Over exfoliating can leave your skin sensitive and irritated. It is best to limit exfoliating to 1-3 times per week. If you have sensitive skin exfoliate less often.
• When using new products – even if they are all natural – it is smart to do a patch test to see how your skin will react to the ingredients. Choose an area of your skin that isn’t as noticeable, like the back of your neck or under your arm, to apply the scrub.
