DIY – Coffee Sugar Scrub

16 May

Turns out, using coffee in a scrub actually has some benefits other than making your body smell like heaven and your skin feel amazingly smooth.

  • Caffeine has anti-inflammatory properties and also helps to speed the healing of skin wounds.
  • Caffeine typically aids in blood flow which helps prevent varicose veins and cellulite.
  • Caffeine is a natural antioxidant which help reduce age spots and wrinkles

How to use:  Apply to damp skin in the shower, scrub, rinse off.

Seriously this scrub is so easy to make that you can do it in under 5 minutes.  Just make sure to use it within about 5 days or it will start to go bad.

“It smells so good you will want to eat it!”
