DIY Coffee Scrub

Coffee scrub! Luckily I’m a barista, so it was quite easy for me to snag a little bit of espresso ground coffee beans for this project. I was quite skeptical about rubbing coffee all over my face but after researching some of the benefits like: ¬†tightening up your skin, treating dark circles, brightening up the skin, and reducing redness I was SOLD. I mixed it with grapeseed oil, and coconut oil. I wanted to choose oils that would be beneficial yet not clog my pores. There are ¬†plenty other oils that could fit the bill but I chose grapeseed because it also tightens the skin and it reduces dark circles as well as reducing scars, restores collagen and it acts as a moisturizer. As for coconut oil… I just like it as a moisturizer because well… its light and it smells nice.

Grapseed and coconut oil

It’s a simple DIY facial scrub recipe so here it goes:

  • 1 tbsp Espresso ground coffee
  • 1 1/2 tsp Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
