So, when I came across a diy coffee scrub, I had to try it. After using the scrub, I found I had immediate results. I was afraid I had some sort of positive placebo effect going on in my mind, but hubby confirmed that I now posses smoother skin. :)
3 tablespoons brewed coffee grounds
1 tablespoon salt
Brew 2 cups of coffee using 3 tablespoons of your favorite coffee. Once the coffee is brewed, dump the grounds into a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon salt. Mix.
|Use these grounds within 20 minutes of brewing coffee. After that, oxidation sets in, essentially meaning the grounds have gone stale.|
|Make sure you have a mesh net over the drain to catch all the grounds.|
Coffee grounds have magnesium, vitamin E, and have antibacterial properties. In addition to all these perks, you also have a cup of coffee waiting for you when you hop out of the shower.
