This coffee body scrub recipe will help you revitalize and detoxify your skin.
The good thing about this coffee body scrub recipe is that even for non coffee drinkers you won't have to take a single sip of coffee to feel its great benefits.
How exactly does coffee help your skin? Coffee is an excellent skin cleanser and really improves circulation and skin tone.
The caffeine in coffee has a lot of benefits as it helps redistribute fat cells and decrease the formation of cellulite when you apply the body scrub topically.
Another benefit of caffeine is that it acts as a vasorestrictor, tightening and shrinking blood vessels so it helps eliminate varicose veins. Also feel good as coffee is granular and it feels nice on the skin.
The body scrub recipe has been used for years in spas in Hawaii and in Bali. No wonder people's skin do get a glow after going to those places. How about getting a glow in the comforts of your own home.
Here's the coffee body scrub recipe:
1/3 cup coarsely ground coffee 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder 1/3 cup raw sugar or sea salt (we prefer sea salt) 2/3 cups massage oil
Mix all the ingredients together until it has an even color.
Take a shower to moisten your skin and open your pores. Rub the coffee body scrub onto your skin using wide, circular motions. Make sure you don't rub to hard but your pressure should be even all over.
Shower off, towel skin dry, and apply a thin layer of your favorite body lotion. Coffee lotion perhaps?
What kind of massage oil should I use?
There are many kinds of oil that you can use that includes safflower oil, apricot kennel oil, jojoba oil, grape seed oil and even olive or vegetable oil.
We don't recommend using baby oil (mineral oil) as it doesn't penetrate your skin well compared with the others mentioned above.
