Benefits of Coffee Scrub:


  • The coffee grounds can help exfoliate old skin cells, while the caffeine can help minimize the appearance of cellulite and varicose veins; this is because caffeine works to constrict blood vessels so it can temporarily reduce varicose veins.

How often can I use a Body Scrub? Don’t use the body scrub too often because overuse may damage the new layer of skin once the dead skin is off the body surface. You can use a body scrub once or twice a week. Also remember to use a very gentle body scrub in case you have a dry skin. Also be very careful during winters when too much of scrubbing can damage the already dry skin.

Homemade Coffee Body Scrub: Take 1 cup of finely ground coffee and add half a cup of fresh yogurt or milk to it. Gently rub the paste onto your body and massage in circular motion. This body scrub will not require a moisturizing treatment afterwards since the yogurt or milk makes the skin soft and supple. After the exfoliation have a warm water shower or a dip in the tub to discover the goodness of this body scrub.
