Try this do-it-yourself face scrub
made from products found just around your kitchen! :)
Coffee & Brown Sugar Scrub
Yields: 1 cup
Perfect to fill one small mason jar!
3/4 cup coffee grounds
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon or nutmeg
1/3 cup coconut oil or olive oil
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
As with all facial products being tried for the first time,
test a small area for a reaction,
then proceed with entire face.
1. Wash face thoroughly.
2. Apply sugar scrub to face,
gently exfoliating for 60 seconds.
3. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
This is a great scrub for the winter months
because our skin tends to dry out and need more exfoliation,
due to heat we have pumping in our homes.
Exfoliate AT LEAST once per week
for optimal results.
I love coffee,
so I hope you enjoy this nostalgic,
wonderful scent as well! :)
P.S Gift idea,
add a ribbon, flower, and gift tag
to your mason jar for the perfect little
'homemade with love' gift!
Bet you didn't know your coffee grounds could be so useful!
