The three ingredients in this recipe are coffee, activated charcoal, and honey. This may sound a little gross or strange, but all of these ingredients have serious benefits that can give you healthier, cleaner looking skin. Coffee is said to help with firming up skin and reducing lines/wrinkles. Activated charcoal is porous and sucks out the toxins from your skin. Honey has antibacterial and antioxidant properties to give you softer skin. And all three act as an exfoliator.

Step 1: BoM

This recipe is equal parts coffee grounds and honey, 1/2 part of activated charcoal. This means if you want to use 1 tbs of coffee and 1 tbs of honey, use only 1+1/2 tsp of activated charcoal. This is usually enough for one use and because the ingredient amounts are so small and easy to put together, you don't really need to make bigger batches.

1 part unused coffee grounds

1 part honey

1/2 part activated charcoal

Step 2: Mix

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

Step 3: Use

Rinse your face with warm water and then apply the scrub. Rub in small circular motions all over your face for a couple of minutes and then rinse off with cool water. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
