Oh honey. If you’re in my boat, this winter has totally kicked my skin’s butt. My skin has been through the ringer and it’s time to bust out some serious backup. Lucky for me, I have all the major players waiting in the wings to lend me a hand.
Welcome back fam. Today I’m sharing with y’all one of my go-to winter rehab DIY’s. When it comes to my skin, I’m a wreck. I’m dry, easily irritated, easily inflamed, basically super fun, right? One of the best ways to help heal my skin any time of year is with a great, gentle exfoliant that can provide and lock-in the moisture that I need without turning me into a swamp thing. Too much? Sorry, not sorry. Real life, folks.
So today’s hack is quick and dirty in the best, cleanest way possible.
DIY Sugar Coffee Scrub:
- 1/2 Cup of Coffee grounds (*you can use something else like lavender or a great tea blend if coffee isn’t your thing)
- 1/2 Cup of Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
- 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil (preferably refined)
- A container of your choice (I recycled a candle container from the holiday season)
The oil works best if it’s melted but NOT hot. I mixed the dry ingredients together first and then added in the oil slowly. This way I can control the consistency of my scrub. If you want it a bit chunkier then you won’t need a lot of oil. If you want a thinner consistency, add a bit more oil.
So if you or someone you know is in need of a quick pick-me-up, raid your kitchen and throw together this concoction. Your friends and your skin will thank you.
I told you this was a quick one. Until next time, tribe. Wishing you all good things. Always. XO
