This weather is taking a toll on your skin, whether you notice it or not. Take some time to treat your skin with an easy (and cheap!) homemade body scrub. Its made with 4 natural ingredients. Coffee is extremely rich in antioxidants and the caffeine draws out excess moisture in skin causing it to look firmer and feel smoother. It is also a mild exfoliant that removes dead skin cells. Coconut Oil is extremely beneficial for your skin because it is rich in vitamins and minerals and provides locking moisture. Raw sugar acts as another exfoliator, and Cinnamon clears the skin of bacteria.
- 1/2 cup of ground coffee
- 1/2 cup of raw sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Heat coconut oil until it melts and let it cool to room temperature, then mix all ingredients until well blended. Store the scrub in an air tight container. Apply the scrub generously to your body in circular motion (it spreads easier if your skin is damp) then rinse off! Your skin will look and feel silky and smooth. This body scrub will exfoliate, reduce cellulite, tighten and tone your skin.
