Ever since I was a wee lass, I’ve had a taste for dark coffee. To keep up with my hectic schedule, I habitually drink several cups of coffee to kick start my day with a few additional ones sprinkled through the late afternoon for a pick-me-up. This month I’m trying to cut down on chasing the dragon to taper my dependency, so what to do with a freezer full of ground coffee? Well, I created a new facial exfoliating scrub that not only gets rid of dead skin but also moisturizes to leave you feeling like an Aphrodite, even if you are a Hephaestus.
You will need:
- ¼ cup coffee, ground, to exfoliate and awaken your beautiful inner beast
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, to moisturize
- 2 teaspoons honey, as an antibacterial and additional moisturizer
Mix together thoroughly, and store in a seal-able container. I use a good heaping tablespoon at a time, scrubbing my face gently with my fingertips, then leave on for a few minutes to really soak up the moisturizing effects. Be careful, after this exfoliation session, you’ll have to carry your ID on you to buy beer at the Quick N Go again.
