Coffee is not just a breakfast drink. Did you know that coffee is chock full of antioxidants? This is precisely why it is a wonderful ingredient to use in any beauty treatment because the antioxidants can be topically absorbed into the skin so that they have the ability to neutralize free radicals.
Here is a simple spa recipe that you can make at home to experience the benefits of coffee.
Coffee Body Scrub
- 2 cups of coarsely ground coffee
- 1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
- 2-3 T massage oil Mix all ingredients together.
Take a hot shower to moisten your skin and open your pores. Using wide, circular motions, rub the coffee scrub onto your skin with strong, even pressure. Shower off, pat skin dry, and apply a thin layer of your favorite body lotion
