Some kitchen scraps are real treasures of beauty. By waste here I mean coffee grounds. And yes, when you read this article you will consider it differently. How to reuse coffee grounds? Today I reveal to you my little complexion illuminating, decongesting, exfoliating, orange peel reducer and so on!
Ingredients and steps to prepare the coffee grounds scrub
- coffee grounds
- Sweet almond vegetable oil
Collect the coffee grounds and place them on a flat plate, taking care to break up the small clusters of beans to avoid mold, a source of bacteria. Allow to dry in the open air.
On the day of the treatment, add sweet almond vegetable oil to the preparation. In terms of dosage 1 heaped tablespoon of coffee grounds for 1/2 teaspoon of sweet almond vegetable oil. Mix the two components so that the grains soak up the oil.
Exfoliating face care:
Apply to clean face and make circular movements with your fingertips. Gently massage for a few minutes. Leave on for 3-5 minutes to enjoy all the benefits of coffee and sweet almond. Rinse with cool water to tone and tighten pores. Install yourself above a sink or in your bathtub to avoid using the coffee grounds floor ^^ And don't worry, the coffee grounds dissolve in the pipes.
The application technique for the body is identical to that for the face. It is simply necessary to make larger circular movements with the palms of the hands. Insist on areas with heavy calluses (elbows, feet, etc.) and on areas with ingrown hairs. Don't hesitate to make movements to palpate and roll at the level of the thighs. Leave on for 3-5 minutes, enough time to shampoo yourself, for example. Rinse with clear water. No need to apply a cream after the shower. The skin is soft, well nourished and hydrated.
In my routine I collect coffee grounds every day and put them aside to make a weekly body and face exfoliation treatment at the end of the week.
You can use any vegetable oil of your choice.
