Coffee Scrub

Whenever you brew a pot of coffee, you’re left with a filter’s worth of used coffee grounds that probably wind up in the trash. However, you can repurpose those leftover grounds and use them on your body. A coffee scrub provides several skin benefits, including improved skin texture and circulation with a temporary cellulite reduction — all at no cost to you.

Exfoliating Properties

Coffee grounds are a mechanical exfoliate, meaning they can be used to scrub away

dead skin to reveal the new, healthy skin underneath, whereas chemical exfoliates

remove skin cells with enzymes or acidic properties. Exfoliating with coffee grounds

improves circulation, leaving you with smooth, glowing skin.

Caffeine and Your Skin

While you won’t ingest nearly as much caffeine when your coffee is on your skin

instead of in your cup, the caffeine from used coffee grounds can temporarily

reduce the appearance of cellulite and give your skin a firmer appearance.
