Cinnamon Coffee Sugar Scrub
Today my friends is National Coffee Day! I am not a huge coffee drinker, I prefer a nice cold Red Bull to perk me up when needed. With that said, sometimes my skin needs some perking up and this Cinnamon Coffee Sugar Scrub does the job in addition to leaving your skin silky smooth.
I am a little addicted with making my own body scrubs. Not only does it cost a fraction to make compared to retail scrubs but it is also so easy to make. At Christmas I normally make this Peppermint Candy Cane Sugar Scrub for all the women in our families.
With the cooler weather on the way our skin tends to get dried out. Exfoliating is so important for healthy glowing skin. This body scrub is gentle enough to use on your whole body, just steer clear of your eyes!
You can make this homemade cinnamon coffee sugar scrub in less than 10 minutes and with only 4 ingredients!
Cinnamon Coffee Sugar Scrub
For this recipe you will need some coconut oil, brown sugar (or white if that is all you have on hand), coffee grounds, and some ground cinnamon too.
Once you measure out your ingredients you want to combine them all in a nice medium to large size bowl. Blend them really well to get out any lumps, brown sugar always tends to be clumped together!
I personally split my coconut oil in half, melting one part and keeping the other room temperature.
Once it is all mixed together you can place it in a cute little mason jar or a plastic container. I like mine in a mason jar, especially if I am gifting it to someone. When I give my girls theirs I prefer to use a plastic container.
After a long day at work or running around after the kids, fill up that tub and enjoy a moment of peace – don’t forget to lock the door. Then just before you are ready to get out, give your skin a pick me up with this amazing cinnamon coffee sugar scrub! Your skin will thank you.
