Coffee is known to have all kinds of health benefits when consumed in moderation, but did you know that it also makes a great addition to your skincare routine? It is loaded with antioxidants, and it makes a great exfoliant to get rid of dead skin cells. And when combined with coconut oil, it will leave your skin feeling silky smooth. So read on to find out how to make these fun coffee scrub bars.
Here’s what you’ll need for your coffee scrub bars:
- A muffin tin
- 1 cup of coffee grounds (they can be used, but make sure they’re dry)
- 1 cup of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- A spoon
Begin by pouring the vanilla extract into the coffee grounds. Stir the mix until the vanilla is evenly distributed.
Next, heat up the coconut oil in the microwave until it becomes a clear liquid. It took me about 50 seconds, but you should check yours every 20 seconds or so because you don’t want it to burn. Remove it from the microwave with oven mitts and pour the coffee grounds into the oil. Stir until they are thoroughly mixed.
Pour the mixture into the muffin tin, dividing it evenly between the cups. Mine were about 3/4 full.
