Wake Up with a Cup of Joe Body Scrub

I am a huge fan of exfoliation and in my opinion it is the secret for clear, smooth, and glowing skin.  I think that it is important to not just exfoliate your face, but your body too, especially during the fall and winter.  In the colder months the dry air takes a major toll on our skin, so much so that I refer to it as my "dry season" because my skin can turn into a dry, flaky mess.  Exfoliating regularly is one of the best ways to prevent that dry, flaky mess from occurring and since I need a body scrub so frequently I like to make them myself!  I have been using coffee grinds in my scrubs for years because the caffeine tightens cellulite and "wakes up skin," and the antioxidants work to protect skin and fight sun spots.  This simple scrub will do all of that and leave your skin feeling silky smooth.  It's super easy to make and a will help with any winter skin problems, which is perfect for me!

-3/4 cup white sugar
-1/4 cup coffee grinds (2 coffee k-cups)
-1/4 cup olive oil

-Put sugar and coffee grinds in bowl, mix until combined.
-Add olive oil and mix well.
-Store in an airtight container.
-Use the scrub on skin while in the shower, massage scrub into areas with cellulite in a circular motion and rinse.

Have you made a body scrub before?  If so what ingredients are your favorites to use?

  1. I've never made my own body scrub before, but that's because I thought it would be difficutl. I never knew how simple it would be! I love the idea off adding coffee grounds, they smell so good!

  13. I ordered medium in these comfort scrubs and they fit great! I do need to hem them, but the fit is perfect everywhere else. And the crotch does not hang practically down to your knees like some other scrubs do.
