To all my members, welcome to self-care Sunday!
This invigorating face and body scrub will remove dead cells & blackheads, encourage blood circulation and lymphatic flow and is not only energising with its strong coffee aroma, but it is using things you will already have around the house at no extra cost!
A big thank you to Laura Brand (aka @thejoyjournal) for this recipe.
You will need
A small bowl, a table spoon, a clean jar with lid, a warm flannel,
1/4 cup of ground coffee (used is great)
1 tbsp fine brown sugar
1 tbsp coconut oil, optional nourishing oil like rosehip or jojoba.
Add your used coffee grounds, brown sugar, 1 tbsp coconut oil and optional extra 4 drops of nourishing oil to a small bowl and smooth together.
Apply a small amount to your face and massage in circles, avoid massaging your eye-area but instead dab on to dark circles.
After massaging your face use a warm flannel to remove.
To create a body exfoliator add more oil. If you have sensitive skin, do a small test patch first. Make sure you date and label your jar and keep it in the fridge.
Tip; you can use Nespresso capsules for this!
You can watch me make and apply this in the video below.
