Espresso Body Scrub (Detox Your Skin)

Bath and Body:
Espresso Body Scrub (Detox Your Skin)
One of the best ways to exfoliate the skin is to use a body scrub. I am going to show you a very quick and easy way to make an amazing organic scrub that will detox and smooth your skin at the same time.

Espresso is a type of coffee that is high in caffeine which is good for the skin in many different ways.  High in antioxidants, Coffee & Espresso rejuvenates and detoxifies the skin removing toxins and leaving the skin  healthier and younger looking. A natural exfoliate, the ground beans remove dead skin cells and leave skin with a healthy glow. Caffeine dehydrates fat cells increasing blood circulation leaving your skin tight, toned, smoother and much firmer which helps decrease problems like cellulite.

You can use ground coffee I choose espresso because it's stronger in caffeine and richer. Then you want to mix it with a natural oil of your choice, I choose olive oil because it deeply moisturizes the dry skin. you can even use a mixture of oils like Sweet Almond, Avocado & Macadamia just to name a few. After you mix the ground beans with your choice of oil or oils you are all done and your body scrub is ready to be used.

You have to give this a try this Espresso Body Scrub left my skin feeling super smooth and moisturized I was impressed by the results. Hours later my skin still felt soft with long lasting moisture. There was a lite coffee scent so if you want you can always add a hint of vanilla , lavender or peppermint oil to ease the smell of coffee.
