Benefits of a coffee scrub

According to a study published Journal of Clinical Aesthetic Dermatology (2009) regarding the use of botanicals in skin care, it was recognized that caffeine, the chemical stimulant in coffee, tea, and some soft drinks, has demonstrated both anticarcinogenic and antioxidant properties. Further, coffee berry, harvested from the fruit of the coffee plant Coffea arabica, is considered to be one of the richest sources of antioxidants and is well known for its skin-rejuvenation properties. Coffee berry contains potent polyphenols including chlorogenic acid, ferrulic acid, quinic acid, and condensed proanthocyanidins

With this in mind, it is important to be aware of how epsom salt, which is known to be great for releasing toxins, and coconut oil, an excellent moisturizer, combined with the other ingredients, including coffee, can be invigorating.

So, for a nice morning wake-me-up, consider coffee, in the shower.

When it comes to pampering – sometimes it really is better to do it yourself. By making this coffee skin scrub, you know exactly what is going on your skin. You know the quality and will feel better when the results in your skin start showing.

    I read that when you use a coffee scrub, you should leave it on a few minutes to tighten your skin. Do you do this?

    I have heard that you could use dry spent grounds (since reaally there is still plenty of coffee in it) and that coffee is good for cellulite. I dont know if it is true, but I have read it in many places. I have always meant to try these scrubs. this has motivate me to make it- very easy recipe!

    I love making homemade body scrubs for myself and for gifts. I have never tried coffee before but it sounds wonderful. I am going to have to pick up a package of epsom salt because that is the only thing I don’t have from the ingredient list.

    I had read recently about using coffee as a scrub and how beneficial it is. Thanks for the recipe!

    Body scrubs are so great when it comes to exfoliating the skin. It removes the dead skin cells in the skin making the skin smooth. The coconut oil makes the skin moisturized. It’s good to use it regularly.

    Have to admit this looks……….. I don’t drink coffee but i do like the way it feels. Simple easy recipe on how to make it. Only thing that would stop me making it would be the coconut oil. I am afraid that it might make the tub slick. I have a nerve damage foot and leg so always worry about falling.

    This looks awesome! I absolutely love scrubs- they really work to exfoliate my skin and keep me from getting too dry. This recipe looks great! I do love the smell (and taste) of coffee and like the idea of knowing exactly what I’m putting on my body.

    It is so important to exfoliate and I have sensitive skin so I don’t think this scrub would bother me. I have dry skin so I can’t exfoliate with anything that has pumice or crushed volcanic rock. This sounds very natural.

  31. 04/10/2016 / 5:20 pm

    Love Hip Mama’s Place and the chance to win The summer Camp Essentials pack. I have Grand-kids who are 4, 7 and 10 years old. They would love these things.

  32. 04/10/2016 / 4:57 am

    Wow that looks really easy to make, not to mention how wonderful it must smell! I love that you used coconut oil. That stuff is so moisturizing!

  33. 04/10/2016 / 1:56 am

    It looks so pretty the way it shimmers. I bet it smells awesome too! I would totally try this!

  34. 04/09/2016 / 5:59 pm

    I bet this smells good enough to eat! So easy too.

    I’ve used a coffee scrub before that had simple ingredients including coconut oil and ground coconut flakes. It smelled great. Thanks for your recipe for DIY Coffee Body; I’ll like adding brown sugar and cinnamon to the other ingredients and scrubbing away.

    I once got coffee sugar scrubs for a gift an loved it. All scrub is to my liking. Its a good way to work the circulation and it leaves skin feeling smooth.

  48. 04/06/2016 / 1:37 pm

    I just love this, so delicious and good for you too!

  49. 04/06/2016 / 9:53 am

  57. 04/05/2016 / 10:49 pm

    I’m currently using a sugar scrub, which I really like. It feels amazing on my skin but isn’t too harsh. I’ve considered trying a DIY scrub, especially one with coffee as I know it has so many skin benefits.
