Hi Lovely Readers, this week I wanted to share with you something I have been trying from the Internet. It’s an all-natural scrub that you just have to mix together with two ingredients; coconut oil and coffee grounds.
It is that simple! If you brew your coffee in the morning… you don’t have to throw away the coffee grounds. RECYCLING! (Feels like we are doing something good here, right?!)
I already used the coffee grounds as a scrub (because it makes your skin super soft), then I had been reading an online article about mixing it with coconut oil. I had to try this directly and I have to say… it’s a perfect combination, because the coffee grounds make your skin feel very soft and of course super clean. The coconut oil adds some moist to the skin. I have to say, the oil is a bit greasy, but when you wash it off and dry your skin with a towel it feels very moisturised and SOFT. (Your skin will be happy with you..trust me!)
Another tip that I had been reading is to keep it in small containers for in the freezer so it solid like a soap and easy to use (when you go to take a shower). Also, you don’t have to use it all at ones because this way the coffee grounds doesn’t mold. (Nice right?!)
I use this scrub ones a week and so far, so good. For the face, I didn’t try it with this mixture, because my face is more sensitive than the rest of my body. I use only coffee grounds (so without the coconut oil) for my face. If you have a tip with what to mix the coffee ground for a facial scrub (for sensitive skin), let me know…
If you brew coffee once in a while at home and don’t know what to do with the coffee grounds… you should definitely try this natural scrub.
Keep your skin soft!

Of course if in anyway you are allergic to one of these ingredients, please don't try this scrub! (because we all want a healthy looking skin and not all our skin types are the same unfortunately, so sometimes we can't use the same products as others, but this is okay) It's all about taking care of your skin in the way what is best for you!
