Honey + spent coffee grounds = love for your skin. Did you know that your spent coffee grounds can be destined for more than just the compost pile? One of my favorite ways to use them is as an ingredient in a super simple (and frugal!) facial scrub. How do you do it? It’s likely easier than you think!
So, what do you need? Not much! Just some raw honey and your used coffee grounds. Generally, I start out by washing my face, using the raw honey face was method in this post, adding approximately one half teaspoon of spent coffee grounds to the honey and water. I give it a little mix in the palm of my hand, apply to my face and scrub, scrub, scrub away! This is a fantastic way to remove dead skin cells and flaking skin, especially in the cold, dry, winter months. And don’t think this is simply a scrub for your face. It’s a great all-over body scrub. Try it in the morning; the caffeine and scrubbing combo gives the skin a wonderful wake-up boost!
