If you are anything like me, the first thing I do in the morning is make a cup of coffee… or maybe a pot. It gives me energy, puts a pep in my step and provides me with an essential item needed for my coffee sugar scrub… used MPH coffee grounds. I love to use this scrub in the morning as it wakes me up and leaves my skin supple and refreshed. There are so many benefits to using coffee in a scrub. The caffeine is loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots and fine lines. It also helps tighten the skin, which can help reduce cellulite as well as reduce the appearance of puffy eyes. Here’s how you make it.
Here’s what you need:
- ½ cup MPH coffee grounds
- ½ cup raw sugar
- ½ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ¼ cup sea salt
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients until they are well incorporated.
Store in a sealable container to use when needed. Enjoy!
