DIY Beauty – Coffee Coconut Scrub

Coffee Coconut Scrub DIY Beauty

Did you know that today is National Coffee Day? I thought we could celebrate by drinking copious amounts of coffee, and doing some DIY Beauty! I love diy body scrubs, for so many reasons! They are so easy to make, and customize for your skin concerns. I made this coffee coconut scrub for a pre manicure hand and nail scrub, but coffee scrubs are supposed to be great for circulation, cellulite and varicose veins. This is a very messy scrub, but it will leave your hands super soft and moisturized!

For my Coffee Coconut Scrub, I used the following:
1 tsp Tate & Lyle organic raw turbinado sugar
1 tsp Trader Joe’s organic virgin coconut oil (softened)
1 Tbsp Starbucks espresso grounds

The beauty of this recipe is that you don’t need to follow these directions exactly! Like a scrubbier texture? Use more sugar, or more coffee grounds! You can use any kind of coffee, I just used a fine ground espresso for this. I love coconut oil, but you can use any kind of oil that you like. You could also add salt instead of sugar if you prefer, or maybe a dash of pure vanilla extract. It looks hideous, but I promise it smells awesome!

This is enough to do a pre mani/pedi scrub. I prefer to make my scrub fresh each time, so that I can change up the recipe! Do you have any favorite DIY beauty recipes? How will you be celebrating National Coffee Day? Be sure to head over to Laura’s blog HERE for some fun Coffee Posts throughout the day!
