If you know me, then you know I love coffee. I love everything to do with coffee. The smell, the taste, the action of drinking it. It’s pure heaven….Mmm…coffee…
Pardon me, I was having a moment. So yeah, I love coffee! Over the holidays, I was surfing Pinterest (as many do) for some pinspiration and discovered several recipes for DIY coffee sugar scrub. “Hey! I can make that!” I said to myself. Because I talk to myself. It’s cool, I’m not crazy…Anywho, I thought I would share how I did it!
Here’s what you need:
- 3 parts used coffee grounds (upcycling, baby!)
- 2 parts sugar (you can use white, brown, whatever floats your boat)
- 1 parts oil (I prefer coconut, but you can use whichever)
- Any add-ins/flavors. I’ve done vanilla and pumpkin spice in the past. For this batch, I used dark chocolate cocoa powder. Smelled amaze-balls, y’all.
Here’s what you do:
Step 1: Mix 3 parts (cups, tablespoons, random spoonful) coffee grounds, 2 parts sugar, and 1 part oil in a medium bowl. Add any mix-ins, like vanilla or chocolate for scent.
Step 2: Stir.
Step 3: Test it out on your hands to make sure the proportions are right for you.
Step 4: Transfer to container of your choice! I’m a mason jar kind of girl, personally.
Step 5: Enjoy your newly exfoliated and nourished skin!
