How To Make A Homemade Coffee Scrub
Exfoliation of the skin, both of the face as well as the body, is an essential step to having soft, smooth, luminous and young-looking skin. And if you don't have commercial exfoliants to do it, don't worry, because there are some natural products that are more beneficial for your skin. One example is coffee, which is perfect for removing dead skin cells, improving circulation, helping to reduce cellulite and restoring smoothness and natural softness to the skin. If you want to test its wonderful effects, don't miss this article at OneHowTo.com and learn how to make a homemade coffee scrub and how to apply it properly.
To make a homemade coffee scrub,you'll need the following ingredients:
- 472 ml of ground coffee.
- Half a cup of white sugar.
- 3 spoonfuls of olive oil or almond oil, whichever you prefer.
Use a glass bowl for mixing. Pour the ground coffee with the sugar and blend both ingredients well with a spoon. Both the coffee and sugar are potent natural exfoliators, but keep in mind that if you use this homemade exfoliating scrub on your face, you'll want to use fine granulated sugar to avoid damaging the skin.
Once well blended, gradually add the oil of your choice, olive or almond. Both are ideal to moisturize and nourish the skin, so the choice is simply a matter of preference. Stir the mixture with a spoon, until you get a paste that's fairly dry and thick.
Now it's time to try the homemade coffee scrub. Ideally, apply it while showering, because due to the steam, the skin pores are open and the scrub will penetrate more effectively. Apply and massage it in circular motions over the areas of the body that you want to exfoliate.
After using the coffee scrub, rinse it off with warm water and when you get out of the shower, don't forget to apply a moisturizer or moisturizing body lotion to keep the skin in good condition. Exfoliate once or twice a week for best results.
You will notice the effects of the coffee scrub immediately, as it will help remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin, keeping it looking youthful, smooth and radiant.
