I’ve been using these homemade beauty products for the past several weeks, and I simply adore them. The Coffee Exfloaint is my favorite, but the Coconut Oil Moisturizer comes in a close second!

I don’t actually remember the when the lightbulb moment hit to mix my used coffee grounds with my favorite facial cleanser as my daily exfoliant, but since I’ve been using it my skin feels softer, and I believe my pores are less noticeable.

The idea for the coconut oil moisturizer came shortly after that. It’s a mix of coconut oil, my favorite moisturizer (to keep the oil from solidifying too much) and some cinnamon and orange essential oils for a lovely and lingering Christmasy fragrance.

**Note – The instructions (recipe, if you will) for making the Homemade Coffee Exfoliant & Coconut Oil Moisturizer is near the bottom of this post.

Did you know?

  • Coffee body scrubs help reduce the appearance of cellulite because the caffeine stimulates dilatation while the scrubbing motion increases circulation and plumps the skin.
  • Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal. Coconut oil works wonders as a nighttime hair conditioner as well. Just remember, a little goes a long way. Apply the oil, wrap your hair in a clean towel and wash with a gentle shampoo in the morning.
  • Coconut oil moisturizer also works wonders as a makeup remover. Even on waterproof mascara.
