The power of coffee

The power of coffee

I start a day with a good cup of coffee! It helps me wake up and keeps me energised throughout the day! I’ve never put much thought into what to do with the used coffee grounds so it usually ended up in the bin or I gave it away for a compost.

However, recently, I’ve discovered that the used coffee grounds can work wonders when used as a body scrub. If you don’t drink coffee, simply use fresh coffee grounds – it’s not the ingredients but the benefits that you’ll love!


  • Plumps and rejuvenates the skin,
  • Helps with the cell renewal,
  • Caffeine helps redistribute fat cells and decrease the formation of cellulite,
  • Prevents varicose veins or even make them vanish! The caffeine in a coffee scrub acts as a vascular restrictor - shrinking blood vessels, thus helping to reduce varicose veins,
  • Boost up skin colouring, leaving your skin slightly tanned

· MMake your own coffee body scrub:

  • 3 tbsp. used coffee grounds (fresh coffee grounds are fine)

  • 1 tsp. sugar or salt
  • 2 tsp. body oil (I use baby oil, leaves skin super soft)

Mix ingredients together and use circular motion when applying all over your body. Don’t get discourage as it’s a bit messy; however, the results are worth it! Try it for yourself and let us know what you think!

Stay healthy! Stay beautiful!
