DIY: How to Make Your Own Invigorating Body Scrub
August 17, 2022
Could your skin use a boost? Or are you ready for a self-care moment? Exfoliating your skin with a body scrub not only makes your skin look radiant, but is also a nice way to relax. You can buy a scrub from the store, of course, but you can also make your invigorating scrub with ingredients you most likely already have around the house!
What you need:
- A spoon to mix with
- A bowl
- Measuring spoons or cups
- A sealed container or jar to keep your scrub in
The small grains of coffee are gentle on the skin, but also very effective in removing dead skin cells.
- ½ cup of coffee grounds
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 1 tablespoon heated coconut oil
Step 1: Mix the coffee grounds and hot water in a bowl.
Step 2: Add the coconut oil. If necessary, add more coffee grounds or more coconut oil for the right consistency.
The consistency must be right; not too runny, but not too crumbly either. Does it have the right consistency? Then put the scrub in a container. You can keep this scrub in the refrigerator for up to about a week. Coconut oil hardens in the refrigerator but is easily liquefied again by warming the scrub in your hands.
