It is not easy to find natural skin care products that are not really expensive and that also do a good job. At this time of the year the old weather is not gone yet. Specially here in Antwerp the last couple of weeks have been pretty cold! Cold weather usually dries your skin a lot, and makes it look a bit dead. To avoid this, you need to moisturise and exfoliate almost everyday, and that can be expensive! Yet I found a solution.
Coconut and coffee exfoliator! It does an amazing job, it really does! It is gentle on your skin, leaves a light moisture behind and obviously smells amazing. We all know coconut oil has uncountable benefits for hair and skin, and that is the main basis for this exfoliator. Besides that, you’ll need grounded coffee. You would think that coffee is really a weird thing to use but the combination of this two is anti-inflammatory, smoothening and great to diminish stretch marks and redness. Besides that, the ground coffee adds the exfoliating action to the mixture.
All you have to do is gently apply it to your skin before you go into the shower. Massage it gently onto your skin. Leave it in for about 5 minutes and then remove it carefully in the shower with warm water. Your skin will end up looking much more alive and soft. The great thing about it is that it is really inexpensive and easy to make. But more importantly completely natural.
You need a small bowl filled with a tablespoon of raw coconut oil. Add then two teaspoons of grounded coffee and mix it well. And it is ready to use!
Try doing this twice a week and see what amazing results you’ll get!
