D.I.Y: Coffee Face Scrub/Moisturizer

This weekend I finally had some time to pamper my self again, which was especially needed after seeing a picture of my face at a weird angle I realized that although not very visible because I have freckles and they blend in, I have a lot of bumps on my skin. They aren't any kind of acne. They look like white head because the tops are white but that is just because it is extremely dry skin (will go away when I moisturize) and if I try popping them nothing happens it just hurts my skin. I am not sure what they are, but I decided to use a scrub to help out with the dead skin and moisturize it.

I cannot say enough good things about the scrub I threw together below. The coffee grinds are so soft on my skin, I was able to add extra pressure to make sure to remove the dead skin. I really liked being able to push down with the coffee grinds and scrub away. With this being said your skin is sensitive be don't over scrub. (Just a little side note, my skin type is dry)

Disclaimer: As I am not a professional make sure to try it out on a little patch of skin, incase you get a bad reaction.




Ingredients:
  • 1/3 tsp extra virgin olive oil (moisturizer), can be replaced with any natural moisturizer (Shea butter, coconut oil etc)
  • 1 tsp organic honey (helps absorb and retain moisture)
  • 1 1/2 tsp coffee grinds, I reused the ones I had from making my coffee that morning (helps scrub off dead skin, and exfoliate)
Make sure to wash your face first before applying the scrub, you don't want to moisturize over an unwashed face. Just mix in all the ingredients and gently scrub your skin for a minute or so. Wash your face ( I will just wash it with plain water ) and thats it. 

My skin felt so good after this, obviously the bumps did not disappear, but the dry skin was off, and since I did not add too much olive oil I would have been able to put on makeup and leave the house with out my face looking greasy. It just made my skin feel and look much better.
