DIY Beauty: Amazing Coffee Scrub for Glowing Skin

Coffee scrubs are awesome - they smell amazing, tone your skin, fight cellulite and give a natural glow that lasts. They also cost only a couple of bucks to make (while retailing at 15-20 euros).  
For the best results, use it 1-2 times a week and if time allows leave it for 20 minutes to work its magic.



½ cup finely ground organic coffee

½  cup raw cane sugar or white sugar

2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (optional)

3 tablespoons  cold-pressed organic sweet almond oil/ apricot kernel oil/olive oil 

2 tablespoons raw organic honey

10 drops peppermint or sweet orange essential oil


In a glass or metal bowl mix coffee, cacao and sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Store in a clean airtight container and avoid letting water in. It will keep well for several months.

To use: It’s a bit messy, so I suggest using it in a shower. Take a small handful of scrub and apply to wet skin in firm circular motions. Leave for 5-20 minutes, depending on what time allows. The longer you leave it on, the more significant the results. Rinse off with warm water. The thin layer of oil will remain, so you do not need to moisturise. Just towel off and you’re good to go.
