A Beginner's Guide to Coffee Scrubs

If you are looking for healthy all-natural alternatives to your daily scrub and exfoliator, look no further than your favorite beverage: coffee. Coffees contain lots of CAFFEINE. Caffeine stimulates our mind and body when we drink coffee. But when applied to our body skin, caffeine reduces cellulite and helps to tighten the skin.

Coffee scrub made from grounded coffee can be used to clean away dead skin to reveal the new, healthy skin underneath. Chemical exfoliates remove skin cells with enzymes or acidic properties. Coffee grounds exfoliate mechanically by sweeping your skin, improves circulation, and leaving you with smooth, glowing skin.

When applied under the eyes, the coffee scrub can minimize the appearance of puffy eyes because caffeine restricts blood vessels, which reduce swelling and inflammation. Caffeine is also known to be rich in antioxidants, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines.

You can easily combine finely grounded coffees with sea salt, and natural coconut oil to make a soothing scrub for your body. No need to buy expensive cosmetic products, or cover your body with harsh chemicals, these coffee scrub removes cellulite as good as any expensive cosmetic products, but with all-natural ingredients.

There are many commercially made coffee scrubs available on the market, such as Anjou Coffee Scrub. These coffee scrubs contain grounded coffee beans of various types (Anjou Coffee Scrub uses fresh grounded Arabic coffee beans). Grounded coffee beans contain more caffeine than used ones, but they are also more expensive.

A cheap alternative is to use leftover coffee grounds from making coffee. Because coffee grounds are free, even in bulk—if you don’t drink coffee you could always just swing by a coffee shop. Most coffee shops are happy to give away a bag full of used grounded coffee for free. While having lost some caffeine to your drink, they will achieve almost the same result at a much lower cost when applied daily.

Here are four simple steps to make your coffee scrub:

1.       In a large bowl, add one cup of coffee grounds 

2.       Add three teaspoons of sea salt

3.       Add six teaspoons of melted coconut oil

4.       Mix well and transfer to a waterproof jar or container

In the shower, apply the coffee scrub mixture to areas with cellulite, massage the scrub onto your skin in a circular motion, and rinse afterward.  Repeat daily for the best results.

And a final piece of advice: use a drain filter if you do not want to clog your shower with grounded coffee.
