This 3-ingredient homemade coffee body scrub is super simple to make and nourishing for dry skin. A coffee scrub is great for exfoliating your skin and removing dead skin cells - but also gentle.
There are so many reasons to love coffee. Personally, I love it when I'm drinking it DAILY… but coffee scrubs have allowed me to love its other benefits including how it leaves my skin.
Exfoliating your skin with body scrub has many benefits. Not only does exfoliating make your skin look more lively and rejuvenated, it removes those dead skin cells that clog your pores.
Although, please note that coffee grounds are slightly abrasive but still gentle as a skin exfoliator - which is why it's one of my favorite body scrub ingredients. Brown sugar is a little more abrasive than coffee grounds, but definitely not pain-inducing like some sea salt scrubs can be.
Coffee Body Scrubs are:
- Great for dry skin
- Made with everyday kitchen ingredients
HOW TO USE COFFEE SCRUBS:
I recommend using a body scrub in the shower first thing before you wash with soap because there will be a slight residue left on your body that you will need to wash/rinse off.
Pairing your homemade scrub with our Zerolla body moisturiser will allow for extra smooth and nourished skin whilst leaving you smelling great!
- ½ cup coffee grounds - these can be new or used grounds… its up to you!
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup coconut oil
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
Use as directed above.
Store any leftover coffee scrub the fridge (to prevent mold) and use within two weeks
You can use this scrub on your body and face as long as you’re not sensitive to it, it's fine for most people and can be very beneficial.
