There is always coffee grounds left over from your morning coffee – instead of throwing them away, you can use them to make a refreshing and moisturizing facial scrub! Unlike many commercial scrubs, the coffee scrub does not contain harmful microplastics and consists only of natural ingredients.
Here are inexpensive facial & body scrub recipes made with coffee grounds – pure or with a few other ingredients.
Coffee scrub is as invigorating as it is effective, but also has a stimulating effect on the skin.
Using organic homemade coffee scrub will help firm your skin, remove dead skin cells, and encourage healthy circulation all at once. The circulation-promoting effect of the caffeine helps to better supply the skin with nutrients. As a result, the skin looks fresher and firmer.
For Clear Skin: Brown Sugar, Honey and Coffee grounds
Mix a portion of coffee grounds with brown sugar, honey and a little water in your hand and spread the final paste on your face in circular motions. Then wash off the paste with warm water and care for the face as usual.
Additionally, brown sugar as a scrub will help for skin to remove dead skin cells even more. Honey is naturally antibacterial and is great for acne treatment, moisturizing the skin and boosting the skin complexion.
For Smooth Skin: Plant based oil (coconut oil), Brown sugar and Coffee grounds
Plant based oil, coconut oil is antibacterial. It is used in many beauty products and helps to clean the face. High-quality plant oils help to provide additional care, because they contain valuable components such as unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and phenols, which also help to keep the skin healthy and firm from the outside.
Time required: 20 minutes.
Process: Add each ingredient into a bowl and mix throughly into a homogenous mixture. If you’re using grounded coffee let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Before applying, clean your face with warm water, gently massage the coffee into your face. Spread the paste with circular movements into your skin. It is not necessary to rub strongly, because the coffee grounds effectively remove dead skin particles even without pressure. Leave the scrub on for about ten minutes.
The coffee grounds scrub is easy to rinse off with warm water. To allow the nourishing oil to continue to work, do not rub the skin dry, just pat it dry.
Advice: Peelings are best used twice a week, but not more often so that the skin is not too stressed. Listen and start du understand your own skin.
