Exfoliating Coffee Scrub

Happy Makeup Monday Everyone!! I hope everyone has had a great weekend. Yesterday it was really hot here I think we reached plus 30 Celsius which makes me so excited because we are off to a slow start to summer here.

I know this post isn’t a Make up product but It is apart of my skin care routine and helps the application of your makeup go on smoother. Just remember I am not an expert in anyway and if you have sensitive skin, maybe check with your dermatologist before trying this!!

One day I was just scrolling My Pinterest Account and I was looking at skin care products. My skin gets so dry in winter and I wanted to find something that would help this. Now I say my skin is dry but my face is oily, and if I’m not careful I get pretty bad breakouts. I wanted to find a natural way to help myself outtt. This is a combination of a few recipes I found, and I just created my own.

I was Shocked when I read I could find all these ingredients in my fridge and cupboards. All you need is coffee, lemon juice, sugar, and baking soda. 100% organic you could eat it and you can use this mixture on your whole body.

When I read that coffee was in this mix it really surprised me.. that hot beverage I drink every morning is actually a really good detox for my skin, as well as help reduce stretch marks and other scars. The sugar something that I put in my coffee lol is a good exfoliate since the sugar grins help remove the dead skin, baking soda to help firm the skin and help reduce cellulite and lemon juice to help with discolouring. Who would of known. -you can also put coconut oil in, this is something I have yet to try!

I mix this paste together in a bowl with a spoon and than I smear it all over my face and body. Be sure the rub this in to your skin to get the full exfoliating effects and be prepared to be amazed – I would do this process 1-2 times a week or whatever you feel is best for you !!

For full body :

-1/2 cup coffee grounds

-1/2 Cup sugar

– 2 table spoons baking soda

– 2-3 table spoons lemon juice

Thanks so much for reading, I hope you skin is as soft as a babies

Any questions comments concerns, get at me!
