Homemade Skin Care Recipe: Morning skin exfoliation with coffee grinds
submitted by Neri Martinez, Miami, FL USA
Tip description / details:
I discovered this while creating a natural exfoliator. It exfoliates very well and the caffeine seeps into your skin and makes you feel awake and not jittery. I does not stain and adding the honey will moisturize your skin. I don't drink coffee but my family does and I just get the grinds from them in the morning.
Honey (optional, but reccomended for dry/sensitive skin types.)
How to prepare:
Take about 1/4 cup of coffee grinds or use whatever is left from the morning brew. Add just enough honey to create a blendable scrub, a few drops should be enough.
How to use:
Apply all over body and face scrubbing in circular motions. I reccommend using immediately after mixing before the grinds and honey melt together. Always moisturize after this treatment.
Results (observed by submitter):
I feel refreshed, my skin is smooth. Great for fatigue or dreary mornings. Use decaf at night.
