Coffee Body Scrub

How To Make An Easy Coffee Exfoliation

For all of you coffee lovers out there, imagine that smell of fresh roasted and ground coffee in a body scrub treatment.

Yes, lush coffee aroma that not only makes your skin smell amazing but is a beautiful polish as well. Plus it is super easy to do!

Here is the easy coffee body scrub we use at Ripple in all of our coffee day spa packages.

Coffee Scrub Ingredients

  1. Freshly ground coffee beans

  2. Moisturizing cream

  3. Try to grind the coffee yourself if you can. I have a herb grinder which is perfect way to do a nice fine grind of the coffee for your scrub.

  4. This way you can get it just as course or as fine as you like. Try not to make it too coarse as this can be a little bit too rough on your skin. Or of course you can just get from your local cafe or supermarket.

  5. Moisturizing cream – which one? To be honest, I just get a cheap one from the super market, doesn’t have to be expensive.

  6. If you would like to add to it with essential oils, this can be a great way to boost your coffee body scrub. I love vanilla scent with coffee (my favourite smell combination) so add that, but feel free to add whatever you like.

  7. Love this idea but don’t want to do it yourself? We include a coffee scrub in every coffee massage package

3. How To Use The Coffee Scrub

  1. Mix your body scrub together.

  2. Then have a nice warm  shower, dry off, and while still in the shower rub the coffee scrub into your skin. This will help exfoliate your skin and remove old skin cells, and will also stimulate your lymphatic system, removing toxins from your body.

  3. Let the scrub sit for five minutes and then shower off (without soap, just water).

  4. To finish, brew yourself a coffee and relax, taking in the coffee aroma of your skin.

How To Make A Coffee Facial

You can also make a coffee facial the same way.

  1. Use a fine grind of coffee and mix into your favourite facial moisturising cream.

  2. Mix both together, making it as coffee scented as you like.

  3. With a facial brush or with your fingers, apply thickly to your skin.

  4. Lie back and relax for 15 minutes.

  5. With your finger tips, very gently rub in small circles on your skin. This will give you a very gentle facial exfoliation.

  6. Wash off with warm water.

  7. Only do once a week at the most.

  8. Coffee will reduce the redness of inflamed skin and also puffiness around the eyes.   

How Is Coffee Healthy?

1. The caffeine in coffee can stimulate the mind.

The science behind this is complex, but caffeine has been linked to increasing your memory and increasing your mood, increasing for a short period your activity levels and general mental functioning.

Not a bad reason to have a couple of cups a day.

2. Coffee helps lose weight? There are some university studies, like this one suggests that the caffeine in coffee may help you lose weight.

This maybe why a lot of weight loss supplements often have high rates of caffeine as an ingredient.

3. Coffee as an antioxidant. Surprisingly, coffee has much higher levels of anti oxidants than either red wine or green tea. Anti oxidants have been linked to reducing the risk of cancer, help prevent Alzheimers and reduce the risk of skin cancers.

4. The vitamin niacin is another valuable component of coffee. Lack of niacin affects the metabolism of the gastric acid and intestinal area. One cup of coffee contains a daily requirement of the vitamin.
