Coffee and Coconut Body Scrub ☕️

Today, for our Zero Waste Sunday we are sharing with you our all-time favorite body scrub recipe. It is simple, takes only a couple of minutes and you can make any quantity you'd like - just exchange the 'part' measurement with a cup or equivalent, depending on how much coffee you've got on hand.


Ingredients

1 part used coffee grounds

1/3 part brown sugar

1/3 part coconut oil

1 lime



  1. Melt coconut oil on a pan - don't get it too hot, just so it melts!

  2. Turn off the heat and mix in the rest of the ingredients; coffee grounds, sugar, and juice from a full lime.

  3. Put it all in a recycled container... A jar or a pot after shop bought scrub. Keep it zero waste!

  4. Enjoy lovely coffee scrub in your shower all over your body and face (avoiding eyes)!

  5. Turn off the heat and mix in the rest of the ingredients; coffee grounds, sugar, and juice from a full lime.


P.S. Pop the leftover of the lime in your glass of water and enjoy an extra refreshment 💦

Why is it great?

Caffeine constricts the blood vessels and helps reduce inflammation and puffiness. It also tightens and brightens the skin, reducing wrinkles and visibly smoothing away cellulite. Lime contains vitamin C and flavonoids, the antioxidants that strengthen collagen. Coconut oil moisturises the skin, locking in all the nutrients and benefits from coffee and lime. It creates a film of silky goodness so you can enjoy the lovely feeling for longer. Brown sugar acts as an exfoliate that takes away dead skin cells and helps you prolong the lifespan of your tan!

All these benefits with no synthetic chemicals and ZERO WASTE! Let us know if you tried it and if you liked the effects in the comment ⬇️
