I love a good pampering as much as any girl, especially after a great workout! I was experimenting with some homemade salt scrubs, and after the success of my Lemon Rosemary Salt Scrub, I thought I would try something new.
It has been scientifically proven, that when consumed in moderation, coffee promotes good health and contains properties that help you keep illness at bay, but it has also been noted that coffee holds some great benefits when used on your skin, namely:
- It is a great source of antioxidants
- It increases collagen production and skin elasticity
- It promotes cell re-growth
- It enhances circulation
- It is a gentle and effective exfoliant
Armed with this information I thought a Coffee Salt Scrub sounded like a great idea. I tried this out and absolutely loved it. It was invigorating, smelled amazing, and left my skin super soft and smooth. If you are looking for a simple, homemade spa treatment, you definitely need to try this out.
COFFEE SALT SCRUB RECIPE:
- 1/2 cup coarse sea salt
- 1/3 cup coffee grounds
- 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
In a bowl mix the sea salt and the coffee grounds together. Add in the coconut oil and mix well. Store in an air tight jar for those days you need a good scrubbing!
