Raving About This DIY Coffee Body Scrub
Updated: Sep 18
Imagine drinking fresh ground coffee and getting a body scrub out it. It's cheap, in fact free, natural and chemical free and quick to make. Easy peasy hassle free.
I discovered the coffee body scrub after coming across a coffee body scrub on Amazon for exfoliation and that particularly targeted cellulite. It felt and smelled so good but was really oily which is one thing I dislike about most scrubs. I used it up until I thought to myself 'hold up', I have ground coffee and always throw away the granules after drink it.
It's been close to 2 months now I have been using ground coffee granules as a body scrub and its great for my skin. Your basically just need two things: ground coffee and a coffee presser which I got from Amazon (linked below) and of course water and a kettle :).
1. Ground coffee, I prefer organic but it's entirely up to you to get regular coffee.
So basically after drinking my coffee, I just use the remaining granules as a body scrub, fresh out the presser. I add nothing to the scrub and do not store any away, I only use the coffee for that day. Drinking coffee 2-3 times a week for me is perfect, those are the days I scrub. After scrubbing, you will notice that the heat created during scrubbing produces some oils from the coffee, thus I would not recommend adding any other essential oils to the scrub.

It's great for exfoliation, our body is constantly going through growth and you need to make room for new skin by removing dead skin.
It helps with blood circulation, the pressure caused by the scrub particles improves circulation.
Coffee scrub is believed to target cellulite - cellulite does not like caffeine.
Improves skin texture, looking more fresh, healthy and firmer.
It also helps with hair ingrowns.
How to Use Coffee Scrub
After drinking your coffee, put the remaining ground granules in a jar/plate you can take to you bath/shower
I recommend showering as normal with you body wash/soap to soften your skin.
Then use the ground coffee granules to scrub in a gentle circular motion - do not use too much pressure to avoid inflammation.
FOR CELLULITE- focus on scrubbing the target areas which are usually thighs.
