Apart from giving you immense energy in the morning, coffee is amazing for our skin too. Read now to know how you can use it in your skincare routine with some amazing DIYs!

Body Scrub

Benefits: Apart from tasting absolutely heavenly, coffee also helps in reducing the appearance of cellulite on the skin. It works by dilating blood vessels beneath the skin that improves the blood overflow. So making a DIY coffee body scrub sounds like a great weekend plan.

You’ll Need:

– Mason Jar

– Coffee Beans

– Brown Sugar

– Coconut/ Olive Oil

– Bowl

Step 1: In a bowl, add 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup freshly ground coffee and mix it well.

Step 2: Add 3-4 tbsp. coconut oil to the mix. If you like, you can also add 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence.

Step 3: Mix everything well and then move it into a mason jar.

Make this easy mixture a few minutes before taking bath as once the sugar melts, the texture won’t feel ‘scrubby’ enough.
