Would you like to find a simply way to reduce cellulite, increase circulation, and minimize water retention?
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Many lotions and creams promise these things, but they also come with hefty price tags and lots of unnatural ingredients.
This Coffee Sugar Scrub can make your skin feel and look great while being inexpensive, simple, and smelling absolutely amazing!
Massaging this scrub into your skin exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates blood/lymph flow while the caffeine has a tightening effect.
5-Minute Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe
(I looked at the time before I started and within 5 minutes I was able to gather all the ingredients, mix up the scrub, put in in the jar and take all the photos in this post. Whew…this is one quick DIY!)
- 1/3 cup ground coffee (I had this vanilla coffee on hand)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup extra light olive oil or coconut oil (coconut oil will harden in colder temperatures)
Mix in a bowl.
(I like my coffee sugar scrub to be pretty thick, but you can add more oil if you like it runnier.)
To Use: Simply massage in to wet skin for several minutes using firm pressure. Rinse and wash as usual. Use 2-3 times a week. Your skin will feel amazing after just the first use and you should notice visible changes in your skin within a couple of weeks.
This coffee sugar scrub also makes a wonderful and inexpensive gift. Our family gave small jars away last Christmas and have had many requests from the recipients for more.
