How to Make Spa Coffee Scrub


Beauty experts often recommend exfoliating scrubs to cleanse away old cells and smooth skin. Coffee scrubs may have added benefits, as well. According to Jennifer Tanner, on the Cancer Lynx website, the caffeine helps prevent cellulite formation by spreading fat cells, while its vasorestrictor qualities may help prevent varicose veins. By making your own coffee scrub, you can have your daily dose of caffeine without the "jitters," and bring the spa home with you

Things You'll Need
  • 4 cups ground coffee
  • 1 cup raw sugar, brown sugar or sea salt
  • 5 tbsp. baby oil or massage oil
Mix the coffee and the sugar or salt thoroughly.

Blend the oil into the mixture, using your hands to ensure even distribution.

Rub a small amount of mixture over your skin, gently massaging it in small circles.

Rinse the scrub away with warm water.

Store the remaining scrub in an airtight container.
