Coffee and Raw Sugar Scrub

So, it’s practically May, which means it’s almost summer, which means these cozy sweaters, leggings, and jeans I have been sporting for MONTHS are going to have to go into hiding soon.  I’m OK with that, actually I am more than OK.  I am a LEO, it’s my season.  I love summer…beach, shorts, sundresses, BBQing, sunset wine in the garden with my mom, the smells, the tans…Yeah, I’m more than OK with it almost being summer :-)

Since I will be trading in my sweaters for tanks, pants for shorts, and sporting plenty of summery dresses, I decided to give my body a fresh scrub and healthy glow!  Best part of this scrub, it’s all stuff from the kitchen.  It’s natural!!  No looking on the back of a jar and wondering what the __ is all this stuff.  

Not only does this scrub leave the skin feeling silky and looking radiant, it has some wonderful benefits.  The caffeine in the coffee actually helps stimulate fat cells, easing the appearance of cellulite.  Similarly, it works to help blood cells to reduce varicose veins.   …AMEN!!!!  

All you need are fresh coffee grinds, raw sugar, and some oil (I use olive oil)

Mix 3 tablespoons of coffee grinds, 3 tablespoons of natural, raw sugar, and 1/4 cup olive oil.  

Jump in the shower and scrub up!  Make sure to scrub in circular motions.  After you rinse, your skin will be silky smooth and vibrant, ready for those cute summer outfits!!

The mixture has a strong coffee sent, which is also really nice :-) Enjoy!!!!
