Coffee & Sugar Body Scrub | Beauty DIY

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

We're slowly but steadily going into spring now. The weather is getting warmer and after what felt like an eternal winter to me, we can finally put away our big coats and dress a little lighter, show a little more skin and enjoy all the vitamin D. To get my skin spring-ready and looking fresh I've been using this homemade body scrub, made from everyday ingredients we probably all have lying around the house. It's also cheaper than most store bought body scrubs and you know 100% what's in it! Well, here's what you'll need:

☕ 1 cup ground coffee
☕ 1/2 cup brown sugar
☕ 1/4 cup coconut oil
☕ essential oils, mainly for fragrance

Now the rest's easy! Just melt the coconut oil in a microwave and mix in a bowl with the coffee and sugar. Then add a few drops of essential oil to fragrance the scrub. I used lemon essential oil as that is said to nourish the skin and reduce cellulite, hence making your skin supple and firm. When everything's all mixed together evenly, fill a nice glass with your scrub and close tightly. Use your homemade body scrub within 2-4 weeks.

This also makes an awesome present! Just decorate your glass nicely and give to your loved ones. Who doesn't like all natural skin care made with love?

Do you use body scrubs regularly? Do you have any favourites? Let me know in the comments below if you make this at home :)

Lots of Love,
