Coffee Face Scrub Recipes.

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 basic skin types. 

Do note that this article is for a coffee face scrub, and not body scrub. (Our body scrub article can be found at the end of this one).

Coffee-Scrub-ingredients.webp

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 of mother nature's miracles we can add to our scrub to bring added benefits for our  skin.

But first, an important point..

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.

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

Naturally Organic is Important.

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 - Light Roast is the best coffee bean to use due to it's naturally high nutrition 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.

Now that we've cleared that up, let's get scrubbing.

1. Coffee Scrub for Balanced Skin.

Face-scrub-recipe-balanced-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.

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.

For balanced skin, we're looking to make a balanced scrub.

Some Cucumber.

Salt.

Salt-for-coffee-scrub_edited_edited.webp

Amounts shown are based on having enough scrub to do your face and your neck (if you want to).

blender-to-make-coffee-scrub-face_edited_edited.webp

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).

  • ​Add 4 or 5 teaspoons (or equivalent) of coffee.

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

  • 3 teaspoons of sugar (or 3 cubes). Brown is best, white is ok.

  • 2 teaspoons of honey.

  • You want 2 teaspoons of Aloe Vera (Plant cuttings or quality gel).

  • 3 or 4 slices of a cucumber.(Leave the peel on).

  • About a third of a pint (160ml) of water.

To Do.

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. 

  • Pour your mix into your bowl or dish.

  • 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 or use         a shower cap or something similar).​

Scrubba-dub-dub.

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

  1. Start with your cheeks and rub the scrub in a slow circular motion.

  • Nice & slow. Make sure you gently massage the nourishment into every part of your skin.

  • You can either do 1 cheek at a time or just use both hands to do both at once.

  • Make sure you spend at least 20 seconds massaging the scrub into each cheek.

  • Do your nose. It has skin too! Top to bottom, 20 seconds.

​   2. Beneath your eyes and around the side.

  • Same technique. Massage your scrub into the skin under your eyes, taking care not to get any in your eyes (obviously).

  • Again, spend at least 20 seconds gently rubbing the ingredients into your skin.

   3. Forehead.

  • Circular motions. Just rub it all in but not too hard. Same again here, at least 20 seconds. Make sure you don't miss anywhere.

   4. Chin and neck.

       We're sure you get how to do it by now. Rubba-dub-dub it all in.

  • Don't forget the 20 second rule.

  • Look up to the ceiling when doing your neck. It'll help open the pores a little more to receive all of the lovely natural nutrition your feeding it.

And that's it. No more required.

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 face/neck. Just use water only.

Au naturale.

Your skin will appreciate it.

This is What You've Done.

Exfoliated. 

Anti-bacterial.

Anti-microbial.

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.

Balanced-skin-coffee-scrub-recipe.webp

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

2. Coffee Scrub for Dry Skin.

coffee-scrub-recipe-for-dry-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.

Mother Nature Can Help Your Skin.

AHA Smoothie Ingredients.

(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).

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 5 grapes. Any kind is fine. Seeds are fine too.

  • You want around 5 blueberries. Straight into the blender.

  • 4 teaspoons of brown sugar (or 4 cubes).

  • 1 slice of apple. -  Leave the peel on.

  • 1 slice of a tomato. Peel and seeds are fine.

  • 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.

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.

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

  • Add about a quarter of a pint (150ml) of water into your blender.

  • ​Add 5 teaspoons (or equivalent) of coffee.

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

  • 2 table spoons of olive oil.

  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.

  • You want 3 or 4 teaspoons of Aloe Vera (Plant cuttings or quality gel).

  • You want 3 teaspoons of honey.

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.

Let's Rock.

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.

  • Pour your mix into your bowl or dish.

  • 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 or               use a shower cap or something similar).​
