DIY Friday – Coffee Face Scrub

Yay its Friday! Once again I apologize for yesterday’s late post. I really hope you can take a minute to go check it out. We are all super excited about the new fragrances.  That means my baby sister will be here in just one week. I hope at least. I will know for sure later today if she’ll be here Friday the 26th or Saturday the 27th, either way I can’t wait! During her trip she’s requested that I make her some bath and body stuff so in honor of her trip I’d like to share one of the recipes we’ll be using.

We’ll be making Coffee Face Scrub. Whenever you use coffee in a scrub you skin will absorb the caffeine from it. When making coffee scrubs fresh ground coffee is best but you can use pre-ground. We do not recommend using instant coffee or decaf. Instant coffees can stain your skin and with decaf you won’t get the benefit of the skin awakening caffeine.

This scrub combines several ingredients that your skin will love.

DIY Coffee Scrub 1

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp. Ground Coffee
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. Granulated White Sugar
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 2-4 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions:

Mix the Coffee and both Sugars together in a small bowl or container. Slowly mix in the honey and combine well. Add the Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 Tbsp. at a time until you get the consistency you want. Some people like their scrubs to be a little dry others like them to have a more paste like consistency. This is entirely personal preference.

How To Use:

After washing your face apply the scrub in small circles, avoiding the eyes. Massage in for 2-3 minutes and rinse off with warm water. You can use a wash cloth for this as well.

If you would like to make larger batches you can. Just change the tablespoon measurement to parts and keep the ratio. You can easily adjust this recipe as well to customize it for yourself. The Olive Oil can be replaced by any skin safe oils such as Coconut, Sweet Almond, or Argan. You can add or remove items and adjust the ratios of the dry ingredients as well.  Additives you could use are a few drops of an essential oil, oatmeal powder, milk powder, lemon juice, etc. The possibilities are endless.

I really hope you love this scrub as much as I do! Why not give it a try this weekend and pamper yourself? If you are not in the mood to DIY,  look out for this in Our Shop soon!
