DIY Coffee Sugar Scrub
This DIY Coffee Sugar Scrub is about to save your dried up, worn out, tired skin from the harsh winter weather. I’ve been using this coffee sugar scrub for some time now, and can honestly say that it’s better than anything I’ve bought from a store. I know exactly what is in it; meaning there are no weird ingredients that I can’t pronounce or even begin to spell.
We all know you are here for one reason, and one reason only — to get the recipe for this amazing coffee sugar scrub. I’ll give you the recipe and then I’ll blab about the specifics later. I know most of you skip those details anyways. (**winky face**)

½ cup Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Ground Coffee
1 tbsp Almond Oil
1tsp Vitamin E Oil
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
These measurements are more of a guideline than a strict recipe. When I make my coffee sugar scrub, I stick close to these amounts but add more or less until I have the consistency that I want. You can change things up depending on how wet or dry you want your scrub to be.
The brown sugar acts as a natural exfoliant along with the coffee. The caffeine will also get the blood circulating under the skin. It acts as an anti-inflammatory, which helps with puffy, red, skin. This makes the coffee sugar scrub great for using on your face as well.
Just be gentle if you use this as a face scrub. The coffee can be a bit harsh, depending on how finely ground it is. I recommend treating it more like a mask when using it on your face. I take a small amount and leave it under my eyes for 5 to 10 minutes. This helps with circulation and those dark circles, us moms know all too well.
I’m sure it’s obvious that the almond, coconut, and vitamin-e oils help with moisturizing the skin. That is why this is such a great scrub for the winter time. I was getting these horrible, dry patches on my knees that almost looked like bruises. The nourishing qualities of the 3 different oils have made those dry matches practically disappear. The oils also have antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-aging properties as well.
Make it Your Own
I love this coffee sugar scrub because it is so versatile. You really can make it your own. Don’t have an ingredient? That’s okay! Leave it out or substitute it with something else. Want all the benefits of this scrub plus to get rid of blemishes? Add some frankincense essential oil.
