DIY coffee sugar scrub



coffee scrub spilling from a mugThis is my go to sugar scrub for summertime. Coffee holds antioxidant properties and the scrubbing effects from the sugar can help to stimulate collagen production and plump the surface of your skin temporarily.  Perfect for bikini and shorts season. This coffee sugar scrub is great for summer because it helps to slough off the top layer of your skin that can become dull from sun exposure and sunscreen.  Not to mention that the dark color of the coffee also works to intensify any tan that you have acquired while out and about. Do I really even have to tell you about how amazing it smells?coffee sugar scrub in mug with scoop

If you have never used a sugar scrub, made a sugar scrub or don’t know the value of a good sugar scrub, especially a good coffee sugar scrub, then you’ve been missing out!

Here’s why:

Exfoliation~ regular soap and a wash cloth alone cannot achieve this level of necessary exfoliation.

Brighter Skin~ once you get rid of clogged pores and dead skin cells, what’s left is                                                                    glowing skin

Healing~ Speeds up the healing process for blemishes and areas of dark skin

Moisturizing~ The properties in the oil leave your skin naturally hydrated and radiant

Cleansing~oil attracts oil, sugar scrub works to unclog pores and absorb impurities, helping cells to regenerate

Coffee sugar scrub is the perfect way to exfoliate all over. Restoring your skin's surface while also reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Prep Time:10 min
Total Time:10 min
Category:Apothecary~ Body
Yield:2 cups
* 1 cup of ground coffee
* 1 cup of sugar ( I prefer to use cane sugar)
* 1/2 cup of avocado oil ( may sub almond oil, safflower oil, olive oil)
* 2 Tablespoons Raw honey
* 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil
* 1 teaspoon of Argan oil
* 1 teaspoon of Jojoba oil
* *may sub any oils that you choose, as long as they exhibit similar properties to the one you are subbing for.
1. Place the coffee and sugar in a large bowl

2. Slowly pour in raw honey, and oils

3. Mix all ingredients until well combined ( honey will clump slightly, mix until no clumps are found) and add more oil if you desire a more oily scrub and more sugar if you find it to be too oily and wish for a drier scrub.

4. Place your sugar scrub in an airtight jar, or container. ( I keep a container of it in the shower)

5. Sugar scrub makes a great facial exfoliator! Rub gently onto face and neck in a circular motion and rinse well. For best results use in the shower or bath.

6. This scrub makes a great gift for anyone in your life!~
