for the smell of coffees

I read about coffee being a good exfoliate, but never though about adding salt till I happened on modelbeautytip.

  • How to make a body scrub. Coffee Exfoliating Scrub - Step 1
    Step 1

    Ground coffee is just as good an exfoliant as many expensive products.

    All you need is a quarter cup of ground coffee mixed with a tablespoon of salt.

    I would wash my face in warm water(and cleanser)
    then rub the coffee mix in)

If you grind your own coffee, I bet you can get different results with different textured coffee grounds, too!

i just tried this out... i also added a teaspoon of honey.
i have to warn you. NEVER try this out when your parents are at home. when they see the mess while rubbing your face they totally will kill you. (luckily my mom didnt regonized me...puh)
OR you should do this while showering, so you dont have to clean that much.
after saying thís i have to say my skin really feels better... very soft. it really hurt a little bit... but that was okay... i feel so fresh now!

I don't use salt beccause the coffee is plenty for me, but I have scrubbed myself raw around my nose a couple times because I forgot that coffee doesn't dissolve!

And to Kiddo. It makes it disappear. it really does. I'm just not willing to give you before and afters of my butt. LOL Happy AND it lasts for about a week once you do it.

Maybe i made a mistake with the doses but my skin is totally red now :O
The salt hurts a bit, maybe that's why my skin is red...

You can really feel it tightening your skin too, it's really reduced the blackheads on my nose to.

I hear that coffee/caffeine is great for getting rid of cellulite when applied to the skin!
