How do these work? The coffee will exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin cells. Caffeine is a vasodilator, which means it constricts blood vessels in the skin. This action works to make blood vessels tighter and firmer very quickly, which is reflected in your skin texture.

Recipe #1: Coffee Face Scrub:

Ingredients needed:

-3 T used, cooled coffee grounds or 1 used K-Cup (after you brew your coffee, just save some of the grounds. If it’s a Kcup, just cut the top off & dump out the grounds)
-1-2 T Melted Coconut Oil  (No Coconut Oil? You can use Olive Oil in its place)
-1/2 T Honey
(I mix with coconut oil because it moisturizes the skin and honey because it’s naturally antibacterial and is healing to your skin.)

-My recipe is easy to modify, the key ingredient is the coffee of course, so if you don’t have the coconut oil or honey, it’s no biggie. Just mix in a little bit of water with the grounds. It won’t be as moisturizing but it’ll still exfoliate really well.

How to make it:

I mix it up in a small dish and let sit for a couple of minutes. During this time I wash my face
Gently scrub face & then I leave on for a couple of minutes
Rinse with cool water

Recipe #2: "Anti Cellulite"  Coffee Body Scrub: This scrub can be used an an “Anti-Cellulite” scrub (it has the same active ingredients as store bought anti-cellulite scrubs) Regardless of it’s ability to reduce the appearance of cellulite, it will make your skin really smooth.

Mix 1/4 cup of coffee grounds mixed with a little coconut or olive oil and get to scrubbing.

Recipe #3: Coffee Face Mask

Combine some used coffee grounds  with some milk (I add just enough to make a paste)
Apply on clean face & allow to sit for about 20 minutes.
