Coffee can do wonders for your skin. Loaded with antioxidants, coffee can help exfoliate and brighten your complexion.
This is a simple and effective recipe that uses items you probably already have (and gives you something to do with used coffee grounds, too).
- 2 Tablespoons of Used Coffee Grounds
- 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar
Olive oil helps nourish and moisturize and brown sugar aids in cleansing the skin and is a gentle way to exfoliate.
Mix ingredients in a sealable container (if you have leftovers you can save and reuse at a later date) using a spoon, Popsicle stick or even your clean finger. Apply gently to wet skin in circular motions. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Have you ever tried a coffee scrub before?
