What’s a better way to celebrate National Coffee Day than drinking a hot cup of coffee? Giving yourself a spa quality coffee scrub!Coffee grounds are a natural exfoliator. Exfoliation is the removal of dead, dry skin cells that collect on the outer surface of the skin. The coffee exfoliates these unwanted cells off and speeds up our own skins natural renewal process, producing healthy glowing skin. Also, coffee’s natural caffeine content is used as a topical treatment for cellulite, as it dilates blood vessels which increases speed and volume of blood flow.

3 tbl coffee grounds (use fresh coffee)
1 tbl of brown sugar
1 tbl olive oilve (unscented & great for sensitive skin), melted coconut (fruity), or almond (sweet).
