Basic Coffee Scrub Recipe
Another lovely natural exfoliant, coffee has been said to reduce both cellulite and varicose veins. This particular scrub is gentle enough to use on the face.
- 2 cups coffee grounds
- 1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
- 2/3 tablespoon almond oil (or other light oil, such as grapeseed or jojoba)
that are frugally inclined, you can reuse your coffee grounds (warm, and within 20 minutes of brewing a pot of coffee). Any longer and you lose the beneficial nutrients.
To use, dampen skin, apply and rub in a circular motion (gently), rinse well.
Please do not use flavored coffee grounds.
