DIRECTIONS

Mix the coffee grounds, sugar, and coconut oil with a spoon, or in a blender if the coconut oil is too hard.

Alternatively, the oil can be melted in a microwave to make the mixing process easier. And that's pretty much it.

Scoop the scrub into a jar or container and apply to your legs three times a week. Simply rinse with lukewarm water for silky smooth skin.

THE BENEFITS

Coffee is high in antioxidants which protect our skin from free radical damage. And a bonus is that it helps fight to aging.

This will be the perfect scrub to use during summer as well because coffee protects the skin from harmful UV-B rays too.

EXFOLIATING FACE MASK

Why not take the coffee routine one step further and make a face mask as well? It's just as easy as the body scrub.

You will need:

1/4 coffee grounds

1 tablespoon yogurt

Mix the yogurt and coffee grounds and gently massage over your face and neck, but be sure not to get any in your eyes.

Leave it for five minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. The grounds could irritate the skin if used frequently so limit the facial scrub to only once or twice per week.

By tweaking the recipe slightly, it could be turned into a foot scrub as well.

EXFOLIATING FOOT SCRUB

1/4 cup coffee grounds

Dash of olive oil

Dead Sea salt or Epsom salt

Mix the ingredients and apply to your feet and heels. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing with warm water.

There are a variety of skin care guides and tips out there. If you struggle to find a recipe that works, consult a dermatologist.
