Homemade Coffee Sugar Body Scrub is a luxurious body treat for smooth, silky, and invigorated skin! Only three all-natural ingredients!
Guys, do I have a treat for you! It’s not the usual recipes, but you guessed it! A homemade coffee sugar body scrub that’s perfect for your everyday pampering.
I am in my (late) forties, and although I wouldn’t exactly call myself punctilious about my (fading) looks, I’m not averse to getting all the (non-surgical) help I need to yank back a bit of my (lost) youth. Face masks, hand creams, body lotions, foot soaks, and the occasional spa treatments are my favorite ways to spoil my body and feel good.
But as much as I love to indulge in beauty aids, I try to stay away as much as possible from products laden with chemical additives I can’t spell or pronounce. And that’s why this homemade body scrub has become my new yummy addiction!
It’s easy and inexpensive to make at home with all-natural ingredients you probably already have.
Religious use of a coffee-based scrub is touted to reduce the appearance of cellulite due to the caffeine-stimulating dilation and the scrubbing motion increasing circulation.
Now, I will not claim such tall statements as I don’t have the scientific expertise to back them up. However, I assure you that after a warm shower using this homemade coffee sugar body scrub, you’ll feel refreshed and invigorated. Your skin will feel like a million dollars, soft, smooth, and supple!
Of course, bonus points for walking around smelling like everyone’s favorite drink.
This scrub is easy to make in 5 minutes and yields about 3 cups.
