Coffee grounds and coconut oil, y'all. I have been using this powerhouse combo for years and SWEAR by it!
Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and absorbs 60-80% of everything that it comes in contact with. Not everything I use is organic or all natural, but I love to keep my beauty regimen as non-toxic as possible when I can.
Coffee is the magic ingredient in this antioxidant packed-scrub: if you are a coffee lover like myself, it will not only ignite your senses, but it also lightens and brightens the skin AND temporarily minimizes cellulite. Pair it with organic coconut oil, one of the most moisturizing natural ingredients around. The caffeine in the coffee grounds tightens while the coconut oil moisturizes and helps spread the coffee more evenly.
I keep Specrums Organic Coconut Oil in my shower and opt for a box of inexpensive K Cups next to my shower. The K Cups keep mess under control and have the perfect amount to cover my body head to toe! You can also use left over coffee grounds after brewing a pot.
I love using this combo in the spring and summer when I know I'm going to be displaying my legs in a swimmie or sundress. Your skin will feel tight, smell amazing, and you'll feel fresh as a daisy since coconut oil is a natural anti-bacterial!
I use once a week, but feel free to use as often as you like!
