Wake up your skin with this DIY coffee scrub

Starbucks is pretty much heaven on earth, but little do you know that the caffeine in the coffee has health benefits and is amazing for the skin. When you drink any beverage with caffeine whether that be a Mocha Frappuccino or a Diet Coke, it refreshes and wakes you up which is what caffeine does if applied to the skin.

We all know Starbucks is an everyday essential...but did you know it could also become your beauty BFF? As it turns out, coffee is an incredibly effective means of giving skin a refreshed, glowing look. Full of antioxidants that help prevent wrinkles and caffeine that helps shrink blood vessels to eliminate redness, that daily cup o'joe is a total *perk.*

The best part? It works externally, too. Check out our fave DIY coffee scrub recipe below!

    1 cup of coffee grinds
    1 cup of sugar
    1/2 cup of coconut oil
    1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
    2. Pour into airtight container.
    3. Scrub, scrub, scrub! (Bonus: In addition to waking up your look, coffee scrubs are fab exfoliants.)
