- 2 Tbspn. Coconut OIl
- 1/2 C. Ground Caffeinated Coffee
- Melt the coconut oil in a small bowl, and carefully add the coffee grounds without spilling them everywhere!
- Ok, now the messy part. Make sure you have a towel handy and get into the shower or bath (don't turn the water on yet) and starting at your ankles, massage the coconut coffee scrub in a circular motion onto your skin. Work your way up your legs to your bum and belly and so on, until you're covered from head to toe. Doing it from top to bottom is best for your circulation. Ok, now wash your hands and set a timer on your phone for ten mins. Catch up on your instagram and twitter feeds while you wait. (I like to have a sit down in the bath at this point). When the times is done rinse the coffee grinds off, slightly massaging as you wipe them away. There will be a little coconut oil and coffee residue on your skin so scrub that off with a loofah otherwise it'll get all over your towels. Now your skin should be SUPER soft and silky.
- This can get pretty messy with coffee grounds getting all over the place so get in the bath or shower to make sure everything is contained and can all be washed down the drain! You've been warned.
