Body Scrubs + National Coffee Day

It’s National Coffee Day!  Lattes, espressos, or  coffee of any kind are not really my thing but I do live for a great coffee body scrub.

My do-it-yourself coffee scrub recipe includes:

  • coffee grounds
  • coconut oil
  • brown sugar
  • juice from 1/2 of a lemon

After showering, I rub the scrub into my skin in slow, circular motions making sure to hit my elbows, knees, butt, and heels.  A good rinse and I have brighter, tighter, glowing skin!  My skin is left super soft and moisturized without that heavy, greasy feeling.

Don’t use the scrub every day though, because it could really irritate your skin.   Once a week at the most is what I do.

Have you tried coffee scrubs?
