In our newsletter, we shared how to transform leftover porridge into a delicious nourishing smoothie. Now, we show you how to repurpose your coffee grounds into an exfoliating body scrub…
DIY Coffee Body Scrub
Give your skin an instant pick-me-up with this super easy body scrub. Our upcycling queen Deya has been making this for guests and they love it. Simply mix coffee grounds with olive oil, and an essential oil such as cinnamon or sandalwood if you wish. Gently massage into the skin and rinse off in the shower for an all-over body boost!
5 benefits of coffee scrubs:
Buffs away dead skin cells and impurities for softer, brighter skin.
Wakes up blood flow and circulation to help you feel more rejuvenated.
Powerful antioxidants in coffee can protect the body’s tissues and skin from inflammation.
These antioxidants can also repair UV damage caused by the sun and signs of premature ageing such as sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles.
Massaging in the direction of lymphatic flow (upwards towards the heart) removes excess water from the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
