Coffee Body Scrub.

Coffee scrubs can do some pretty amazing things for our skin.

In this quick read 'How to' article we're going to look at few tips & tricks we can use in our scrubs to benefit each of the 3 different body skin types.  You really can't beat a home made DIY body scrub.

Do note that this article is for body skin, and not face skin. Our facial article can be found at the end of this one.

We'll learn to make 1 quick & easy (organic) 'coffee mix' for each of the following:

  • Normal skin (balanced).

  • Dry skin.

  • Oily.

We'll be using coffee as the base (obviously) and then we'll take a look at some 'optional extras' we can add to our scrub to bring added benefits for our kind of skin.

But first, a quick but important note ...

Organic is important for the health & well being of our skin.

One of the most important things you can do for your skin (face, scalp, hands, feet and body) is to take a break from bombarding it with factory made chemicals.

There are a lot of scrubs, shampoos, body washes & other things out there which do feel great when we use them, but also contain some chemicals that may be not so good for our skin if used regularly over a longer period of time. The best option is to make your own organic DIY scrub at home.

Going (and staying) organic really is the best option for your skin (and body) over the longer period.

'Au Naturale'.

For this sake of making this article as 'straight to the point' as we can, we're basing all the info on here on the 3 basic body skin types (as shown above).

(The Baumann Skin Type Indicator states there are 16 varying categories of skin. You can click on the blue link if you'd like to learn more about that).

Let's take a quick look at different coffees.

Homemade Coffee Body Scrub.

Coffee-Scrub-for-Body-skin.webp

Coffee Beans.

The ingredients we'll use only slightly differ between the 3 different coffee scrub types. But first, let's clear up something on the kind of coffee we want to be using.

Jar-of-Coffee.webp

Whether your using instant from a jar or coffee maker coffee, you want to avoid using "finely ground". This stuff is just to 'powderry' to use as a scrub. It may clog up your skin pores and maybe give you a 'coffee tan'.

You want to be using:

  • Medium ground. (pretty good - does the job).

  • Medium coarse grounds. (Better).

  • Coarse grounds. (Much better).

  • Extra course grounds. (Best).

Best Coffee for a Scrub?

  • Organic Robusta is the best coffee bean to use due to it's high caffeine content.

  • Arabica is fine.

  • Liberica is ok but you'll get 'limited' results due to it's low caffeine content.

  • De-caff is pretty useless as it contains almost zero caffeine.

  • If your coffee doesn't say Robusta or Liberica, it's Arabica.

You can use whatever coffee you have in your kitchen, unless it's

de-caff or 'finely ground'.

The below is just to let you know what the best stuff to use is.

Recipe.

As earlier mentioned, we'll create a 'coffee mix' and take a look at some optional extras we can add to our scrub that will bring added benefits for our skin type.

This is the order we'll do it in. Just go to whichever one suits you best.

  1. Coffee mix/scrub for balanced skin.

  2. For dry skin.

  3. For oily skin.

  Let's get straight to it.

Coffee Scrub for Balanced Skin.

This is what we will need to use:

  • A dish or a bowl of some sort.

  • A spoon.

  • Your fingers.

  • A food blender of some sort.

  • Maybe a back scrubber of some sort.

Let's Get Srubbin'.

You are! You have what is considered to be the best all round type of skin because generally it requires the lowest amount of maintenance.

Not too dry and not too oily.

Who's a Lucky Girl ?

This is what we will need to make our 'base' mix.

  • Some coffee.

  • Some water.

Some Cucumber.

Salt.

All Done.

Absorption time: We highly recommend leaving the scrub on your skin for at least 5 mins, 10 is better. This allows the skin more time to absorb more nutrients from the scrub.

Once your done here, time to hit the shower. It's important that you don't use any chemicals to wash your body. Just use water only. Au naturale.

Your skin will appreciate it.

This is What You've Done.

Exfoliated. 

Anti-bacterial.

Anti-microbial.

Anti-fungal.

Moisterized (but not too much).

Cleaned the pores out.

Nourished your skin.

Make-coffee-smiley-face.png

You can make and apply one of these scrubs whenever you feel like, but we'd recommend no more than once per week, no less than once per month.

Coffee-scrub-body-skin-balanced.webp
  • Pour your mix into your bowl.

  • Find your perfect place to apply your scrub. A bathroom is usually best as it's easy to accidentally splash a bit of scrub onto the floor or wall.

       (If you don't want to get any in your hair, place your hair in a bun).​

Scrubba-dub-dub.

You can apply your scrub however you prefer to, or follow the steps below.

  1. Start with your foot and work your way up your leg.

  • Massage the scrub into your foot. Nice & slow, relax & enjoy. All over.        between the toes too.

  • Apply more scrub whenever you need to & start massaging your way up to your calf, all over, all around, making sure you massage those natural & nourishing ingredients all the way into your skin.

  • Up to the knee. All around, back & front. Work it onto the skin.

  • Work your way up & around your thigh. Use plenty of scrub & work into every part of your skin. Back & front. All around.

  • Work your way up to your bum cheek and be sure to massage the scrub into as much skin as you can. Note: it's important you reach any areas of skin where you may shave or wax or use hair removal cream. The skin in these areas needs nourishment.

​   2. Now repeat for the other side.

   3. Time to do your arms.

  •  Same technique. Massage your scrub into the skin of your fore arms, then work your way further up making sure you don't miss out anywhere. Do your under arms and armpits too. Scrubba-dub-dub it all in.

   4. Now repeat for the other side.

   5. Stomach, Chest and neck.

  • Start at your naval and using a circular rubbing motion, work your hand all the way around your stomach. Reach around and do the side of your body, ribs, all the way up to the arm pit area. 

  • Now repeat the same for your other side. Don't miss out any areas of skin.

  • Load up on some scrub with both hands and start massaging it into your chest area, all over, all around, don't be shy, get it all in there.

  • Now we'll do the neck & shoulder area. Same thing. Load up on scrub and rub it all in. Let's get that lovely natural nutrition into our skin.

  • Up onto your throat, all around the neck and make sure you get any area around the shoulders you may have missed earlier.

   6. Back.

       This area is a little more challenging, so you'll either need somebody             to do this for you, or you'll need one of these:

  • Load up your back scrubber with plenty of scrub.

  • Make sure there's plenty in between the bristles of the brush and scrubba-dub-dub away. Make sure you get all areas of your back from bottom to top.

And that's it. No more required.

To Do.

Amounts shown are based on an all over body scrub. Arms, legs, stomach, back, chest, bum cheeks, feet, shoulders & neck.

Blender-cfor-offee-scrub.webp

If you want to do less than your whole body, just use half of the ingredients stated.

Ingredients.

(Don't forget that you can freeze a scrub after you've made it. It'll keep fresh for months in a freezer. Leave it thaw out for around 24 hours before use).

Get your bowl or dish and fill it with  1  pint or 560ml of fresh cool water.

  • ​Add 12 teaspoons (or equivalent) of coffee.

  • 10 teaspoons of salt. (Sea or rock salt is best. Use whatever you've got).

  • 8 teaspoons of sugar (or 8 cubes). Brown is best, white is ok.

  • 6 teaspoons of honey.

  • You want 8 teaspoons of Aloe Vera (Plant cuttings or quality gel).

  • About a quarter of a cucumber.(Leave the peel on).

Just pop everything into your blender and mix it all up for around 3 to 4 seconds, 3 times. You'll get it just perfect. (you might want to cut the cucumber into 5 or 6 pieces before placing into blender - up to you).

Let's learn how we can help our dry skin gently lose dead skin cells and moisturise at the same time. The natural way.

Coffee Scrub for Dry Skin.

coffee-scrub-stomache-skin.webp

This is what we will need to use:

  • A dish or a bowl of some sort.

  • A spoon.

  • Your fingers.

  • A food blender of some sort.

  • Maybe a back scrubber of some sort.

Let's Get Srubbin'.

AHA ! .... stands for Alpha-Hydroxy Acids. These lovely little acids can be found in many foods throughout nature and are great at gently removing dead skin cells, allowing for healthy new ones to grow more freely.

So, this scrub comes in 2 phases.

  1. We'll quickly make an AHA smoothie for our skin.

  2. Make & apply our coffee scrub. Simple.

A lot of pre-made scrubs you can buy online that contain AHA's are made with synthetic factory processed AHA's. These are of an inferior quality compared to what mother nature offers us. Scientific fact.

Amounts shown are based on an all over body scrub. Arms, legs, stomach, back, chest, bum cheeks, feet, shoulders & neck.

If you want to do less than your whole body, just use half of the ingredients stated.

(Don't forget that you can freeze a scrub or a smoothie after you've made it. It'll keep fresh for months in a freezer. Leave it thaw out for around 24 hours before use).

AHA Smoothie Ingredients.

You'll need a food blender/smoothie maker of some sort. Life is so much easier with one of these. Always aim for using organic ingredients.

  • ​Add around 20 grapes. Any kind is fine. Seeds are fine too.

  • You want around 40 blueberries. Straight into the blender.

  • 10 teaspoons of brown sugar (or 10 cubes).

  • 1 apple. -  Core, seeds & peel are fine. Just top & tail it.

  • 1 tomato. Peel and seeds are fine. Just top & tail it.

  • Add about a quarter of a pint (140-150ml) of water.

Just pop everything into your blender and mix it all up for 4 seconds, 4 times. Perfect. (It may be a little bit lumpy, that's fine - different blenders = different results.).

Just pour it into a bowl or a dish, ready to use.

Coffee Scrub Ingredients.

Give your blender/smoothie maker a good rinse, then we'll add the following:

  • Add a pint (560ml) of water into your blender.

  • ​Add 12 teaspoons (or equivalent) of coffee.

  • 10 teaspoons of salt. (Table salt is fine for this scrub).

  • 10 to 12 table spoons of olive oil.

  • 6 teaspoons of coconut oil.

  • You want 10 teaspoons of Aloe Vera (Plant cuttings or quality gel).

  • You want 10 teaspoons of honey.

Just pour it into a bowl or a dish, ready to use.

Let's Rock.

A bathroom is usually the best place to apply this just in case anything drips onto the floor or carpet (it'll probably stain). If you don't want to get any in your hair, maybe best to tie it up or wear a shower cap or something.

To Do.

AHA Smoothie:

What we're aiming for here is to just rub this into our skin. Apply it as if you were rubbing water into your skin. No need to "massage" it in like a moisteriser cream. Just give a good rub and make sure you cover any area that you're going to apply the coffee scrub to. If you want to do your back, either tag a friend or just use a back scrubber of some kind.

Leave it soak into your skin for around 5 minutes before moving onto the next step.

Coffee Scrub:

You can apply your scrub however you prefer to, or follow the steps below.

  1. Start with your foot and work your way up your leg.

  • Massage the scrub into your foot. Nice & slow, relax & enjoy. All over.        between the toes too.
