Here’s a tip to turn that villain into a hero. Body scrub: Mix the leftover coffee ground with some brown sugar and coconut oil. It serves as an easy, instant and aromatic home scrub. The caffeine in the coffee has potent antioxidants that help protect skin from sun damage and helps promote overall skin health,” she captioned her video.
The texture of coffee and sugar makes them great exfoliants. The combination helps to get rid of dead skin cells and clogged pores. And not just that, coffee is a great antioxidant which can help to smooth out the skin texture and also boost collagen. For dry skin, you can mix the ingredients with coconut oil and for normal to combination skin type, you add a few drops of olive oil.
