Detoxifying Coffee Scrub

Detoxifying Coffee Scrub

Detox your body with coffee. But not by drinking it. 😉

Coffee scrubs are my absolute favourite. My clients over in The Clear Skin Solution also are big fans. They have an incredible myriad of benefits. Let’s go through them, shall we?

  1. Exfoliates dead skin to help unclog your pores.
  2. Skin is your biggest detox organ, it’s important to keep these pores clean and open so the body can flush toxins out.
  3. Encourage better circulation of bodily fluids, which further aids in detoxification.
  4. Scrubbing away those dead cells reveals new, healthy skin underneath too.
  5. Caffeine found in coffee scrubs can increase blood flow, help regenerate the skin, and reduce cellulite.
  6. Caffeine’s also a vasodilator, it tightens and firms blood vessels — aka smooth skin for you.

Enough said. Moving on…

Sugar

Alright, so if you’ve followed me for any length of time you know my recipes are totally sugar-free. But, I can’t deny how amazing it is in body scrubs.

  1. Granules help exfoliate to remove flaky skin cells and brighten skin.
  2. Natural source of glycolic acid (aka alpha hydroxy acids) which helps to break down dead skin cells and encourage fresh cell turnover.
  3. Discourages ingrown hairs
  4. Natural humectant — draws moisture from the environment into your skin. Helps lock in moisture and keep skin hydrated.

More than just an aroma.

You may think that the essential oils in this detoxifying coffee scrub just give a nice aroma to it (which they totally do). But I’ve actually selected them for their benefits to the skin.

  • Lavender: used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and irritations.
  • Juniper Berry: acts as a natural skin toner and powerful detoxifier.

PS. Make sure to follow up your shower scrub with my Super Easy Body Butter to truly lavish your skin.

Paragraph

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job and we're here to help you do it.

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

Laurenne B.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
