Coconut Oil and Coffee Scrub
If you are looking for a soothing self-care activity for the week, we’ve got you covered. Our Esencia Wellness team is sharing a step-by-step guide on how to create a simple coconut oil and coffee scrub that is nourishing for the skin, and full of antioxidants.
While caffeine is a great energy booster, the caffeine found in coffee scrubs also increases blood flow, and can give your skin a more even tone. Coconut oil softens the skin and helps you manage dry skin conditions.
To begin, mix 2 tablespoons of coffee grounds and 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil. Next, heat the mixture for 5 to 10 seconds in the microwave. Once you’ve let the mixture cool to a lukewarm temperature that is safe for the skin, apply directly on a clean face in a circular motion. Leave the scrub on your face for 10 minutes. Lastly, remove the scrub with lukewarm water to reveal soft and nourished skin.
