Pinter(t)est: 100% natural body scrub

Hi Miguxas! This winter got my skin all dried up and I searched for something to fight against this horror. So I found a tutorial on Pinterest and I ever since wondered if it actually works.

With almost every pinterest DIY I have two problems: the ingredients are difficult to find at the store or too much work. But I found one which is easy and it’s budgetproof! Anyway, let’s wrap it up! Here are the ingredients:

150 gr ground coffee
200 gr (sea)salt
120 ml coconut oil
1 container with cover

– Optional –
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
or
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  • Melt the coconut oil and allow it to cool but not solidify.
  • Mix all ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. You can use a spoon to mix it.
  • Store it in an airtight container or mason jar.
  • Let it cool for a few hours and stear again.

Done! Easy right?
It’s a cool last minute idea as a gift. I used a flower shaped tag and a “homemade” stamp that will make it more personal.

*Don’t use this body scrub for your face. The body scrub has bigger chunks which can damage the skin on your face.

The benefits of coffee scrubs
Instead of using body scrubs with harsh chemicals, coffee scrubs combined with salt or sugar and coconut oil leave your skin nourished and moisturized rather than just cleansed. Aside from the exfoliation, caffeine helps tighten your skin, which can help reduce cellulite. The more you know!

I wonder if you guys and girls would try this DIY. ALso let me know what I should try next!
