DIY: Coffee + Coconut body scrub.
This is probably the worlds easiest DIY beauty treatment. I'm actually kind of embarrassed to share it it's so easy. But trust me, when you make it you'll want to share it with everyone you know too!
It's literally three ingredients mixed together, any monkey could do it.
Coffee, coconut oil and brown sugar. That's it. Equal parts of each ( i do 1/2 cups of each for the perfect sized batch) dump it in a bowl, mix away and get nude.
With winter well and truly on the way in Sydney it's great exfoliating dry elbows and knees and boosting circulation. The coffee is full of antioxidants and is great at diminishing the appearance of cellulite. The ground beans exfoliate the skin to reveal a fresh new layer of silky smooth skin.
As we all know coconut oil has a list a mile long of health benefits and in this case it's there to not only help glide the coffee over your skin but to provide moisture as well as deposit it's super vitamins and minerals deep into your skin.
Now with the brown sugar try and get the softest, moistest, darkest one you can get your hands on. It adds another layer of exfoliation to the scrub and helps break up the courser texture of the coffee.
It's best to scrub away in the shower, it can get a bit messy. Dampen your body and grab a big handful and scrub away. You'll soon be addicted to how smooth it makes your skin and how good it smells!
