made at home: coffee grounds scrub

Coffee Grounds Body Scrub

  • about 1/2 cup of ground coffee beans 
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of sea salt 
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 

  Use your left over coffee grounds from the morning brew, or simply grind fresh beans for the mixture. Add all ingredients together and store in an air tight container. Make and use frequently. Use once a day on face and body. 

  After making my own scrubs and masks for quite awhile, I will never go back to store bought ones. Using this scrub made my skin feel amazingly soft, along with the feeling of being awaken from the coffee beans. Everything in this scrub is wonderful for your skin, which is why making your own scrubs is the best. And you get to use coffee grounds, which normally end up in the trash! 


  1. I use this same recipe at least 3 times a month for a general exfolliant.
    It makes you smell so good.

  2. I can just imagine how brilliant this would feel on my skin and make it feel so smooth after! Definitely giving this a try sometime
