Coffee scrubs are not just about making a diabolical mess in the shower, those granules are perfect to effectively remove dead skin. Some testing also shows that caffeine may reduce the appearance of cellulite… so what are you waiting for?

Single Use DIY Coffee Scrub

To make a single use scrub, take 1/3 cup of ground coffee (or what is left over from your cup) mix in a dash of hot water and a tablespoon of coconut oil. Mix until it is well combined.

Take into the shower with you, ideally apply the scrub in the shower (before you turn on the taps) and allow to soak in for a few minutes. Start shower and rub gently all over with an exfoliating glove until you’re clean and fresh. Apply body moisturiser after your shower to hydrate your fresh and supple skin.
