“She Got That Glow!” Coffee Face & Body Scrub
I have been singing the praises of this natural face and body scrub since I found it on a hair care forum that I lurk religiously. It was submitted by a woman named Pocahontas and she is the TRUTH!!!
After using it for a week and seeing how my skin glowed and how moisturized it was all day long, I told my friend about it who works in a spa. Her response was “Girl you do know those are the exact ingredients in the rejuvenation spa mask right” I knew it!!! These spas are on it! They are hipped to the natural beauty game!
I get sooo many compliments on my skin when I use this scrub. I can’t even tell you how many times my family has said “You are glowing….are you pregnant?! lol and added bonus: it lessens the appearance of cellulite as well!!
I was a little hesitant to try it out at first just because my skin is so picky. Normally for me, a product works well only for a few days, but I’ve been using this stuff for God knows how long. This is a summer staple ladies, use it on your whole body. It really does make the skin look and feel like buttery silk. Thanks so much, Pocahontas!!
Why This Scrub Works So Well
There are tons of information on the web about the benefits of these three ingredients on the skin.
Coffee contains natural ingredients that plump the skin making it appear less wrinkled, rejuvenated and smooth. This is why it works well for cellulite. It doesn’t really get rid of it, just plumps the skin to make it appear less noticeable. It exfoliates well too.
Olive Oil is one of the worlds best natural moisturizing oils. It absorbs fast, brings balance to the skin, lasts long and soooo much more.
Honey is a natural humectant that traps moisture and holds it there. It also creates a natural glisten on the skin. (This was one of the key weapons that kept me from getting pregnancy stretchmarks (genetics my arse!) but I’ll post that recipe later)
I hope you enjoy this scrub as much as I obviously do :0)
- 3 tablespoon coffee grounds (used)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (can use favorite face oil)
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl until it forms a loose paste. (may need to adjust ingredients)
- After cleansing face, gently massage paste onto skin in a light circular motion.
- Rinse and pat your face dry.
