I am a HUGE believer in Coconut oil. Cook with it, bake with it, but also use it on your hair and body!
Today I am going to share one of my favorite secrets to Skin care.
You will not believe how simple, easy and effective this little morsel of info is.
You will need ; Depending on how much you want to use. It can go bad if you don’t use it all in about a month, but trust me… you will use it up!
1 Jar (I up-cycle my Wal-mart salsa jars, they are great mason jars:)
1 to 1 -1/2 Cups left over coffee grounds
2-4 tbps Coconut oil – (if for some CRAZY reason you don’t have CCO in your possession, you can use Olive oil)
1-3 drops essential oils (optional)
In a clean jar or container combine the coffee grounds and essential oil if you are using it. I personally LOVE the smell of coffee so I keep mine simple.
Add in the coconut oil. It will be a bit clumpy but that’s ok because when you are in the shower and scoop the mixture out it will begin to melt as you apply it. Wash, Shave etc first, Now scrub! The coffee exfoliates as well as reduces cellulite (so I have read) the coconut oil then has the opportunity to penetrate and moisturize your skin. You will emerge from the shower smelling like heaven and feeling like silk!
Be sure of a couple things….if you use glass in the shower, PLEASE be careful, 2: Be sure to clean any remaining slipperiness off the bottom of your tub or shower as well as the coffee grounds that do tend to find their way all over your shower if you’re doing it right:) 3: Be careful because EVERYONE will want to touch your amazing soft and radiant skin! OOH LA LA, LA LA LA LA LA
