Exfoliation is key to glowing healthy skin! Especially if you live in a colder climate like Denmark...So I thought I would share my favorite homemade bodyscrub recipe!
The recipe is super simple and easy to whip together before a shower! I use it after I shampoo my hair and while my conditioner is still in my hair. All you'll need is an oil of your choice (I prefer olive oil or coconut oil) and some coffee scrubs.
I love coffee and I'm definitely a bit of a coffee snob - and I think that you should be too and here's why: by buying cheap coffee you're supporting a horrible industry where farmers are paid unfair wages and working conditions are fare less than acceptable. And besides, who want's bad tasting coffee?? If you're like me and you like to start your day with a delicious cup of coffee then look into other brands than just the regular cheap store-bought coffee. It truly makes a difference. I get my coffee from Ønsk , who import premium fairtrade organic coffee directly from Nicaragua. They have a range of different speciality coffee which are simply delicious.
Back to the recipe!!! After I make my morning coffee, I simply save the coffee grounds which are left over after brewing. If you don't have any coffee grounds, ask your local café for some
Mix 50g of coffee grounds with 3-4 tbsp oil of choice in a clean jar/bowl
Optional: mix in 2-3 tbsp of cane sugar or sea salt for extra exfoliation
Take a warm shower and apply the mixture all over your body and face in circular motions
Massage the mixture into you skin for 3-5 min before rinsing off with warm water
The scrub is excellent for cellulite and exfoliation because it removes dead skin cells. Actually, cellulites number one enemy is caffeine - caffeine tightens and provides antioxidants when applied to the skin! Hello to glowing summer skin!
Enjoy 1-2 times a week
