09 Aug Byron Bay Coffee Company Coffee Body Scrub
We all know coffee tastes and smells fabulous but it can also be amazing for your skin.
The benefits of regularly using an exfoliating body coffee scrub include:
Smoother and tighter skin
Great source of antioxidants which can help fight premature aging
Linked to reduced appearance of cellulite
Coffee scrubs are a mix of coffee grounds with or without a choice of dry ingredients and oils.
Dry ingredients can include palm or brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa powder.
Any variety of oil can be used with coconut being the most popular but you can use grape seed, almond, olive or essential oils.
Other options are lemon juice, milk or honey.
What you use will also depend on your skin type and sensitivity.
Search online for DIY coffee scrubs or coffee face masks and you will get a huge choice of options.
