Can a Coffee Scrub (Homemade) Make Your Skin Glow?

Do you love coffee? The way it instantly lifts your mood when you take a sip in the morning or afternoon?

No judgment here.

We love coffee, too. In fact, we gals from The Coffee Scrub love coffee so much, we decided to create a facial and body scrub out of coffee grounds.

Think about it — if coffee can invigorate your day, it can invigorate your skin and make it glow.

So let’s talk coffee, ladies.

A coffee facial or body scrub is an exfoliating cleanser made of coffee grounds.

It sounds too good to be true, right? How can something so simple be so life-changing?

Yet, it’s true. Using coffee grounds is a simple concept, but the benefits are significant. In fact, some coffee benefits and properties are:

  • Delaying and preventing premature aging.
  • Promoting cell regeneration.
  • Reducing the appearance of cellulite and dimples.

But girl, it gets even better.

The Coffee Scrub creates coffee body scrubs and soaps — with organic and natural ingredients.

We’ve done all the hard work for you. All you have to do is pamper yourself.

However, if you’re short on time and want to jump right to the DIY part of coffee scrubs, go right ahead!

A Coffee Scrub Pre-Made With Love for Your Convenience

At The Coffee Scrub, not only is every ingredient natural or organic, but each is specifically chosen for their skin restoration properties, such as: 

  • Reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
  • Protecting skin from the sun and its UV rays.
  • Preventing stress, acne, and achy joints.
  • Reducing itching and inflammation.
  • Providing superior hydration for the skin.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it’s every girl's dream to have amazing skin.

And, if you’re like us, that means The Coffee Scrub will be your new best friend.

In fact, we also have several different fragrance options for every type of woman.

So, let’s dive right into the different ingredients used at The Coffee Scrub, along with their benefits and properties.

High-Quality Organic Coffee Beans 

For the best results, we highly recommend using high-quality, organic coffee beans. In fact, the quality of the coffee beans you use has a considerable impact on your results.

Aim for organic coffee beans whenever possible.

Coffee beans that are grown inorganically contain chemicals, including pesticides and preservatives.

And girl, trust us. You don’t want those nasty chemicals anywhere near your skin.

This isn’t news to The Coffee Scrub, because we only use organic coffee beans in all our products.

Let's take a closer look at what coffee grounds are doing for your skin:

  • Polyphenols are detoxing the body of free radicals.
  • The coffee grounds are powerfully cleansing your skin.
  • They are providing gentle exfoliation to unclog pores and wash away dead skin cells.
  • They are boosting blood circulation and dilating blood vessels to break down toxins and fatty tissue.

Did you know? Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage your skin cells and that may cause premature aging. 

Olive, Macadamia Nut, Grapeseed, and Almond Oil 


Oils such as olive oil and grapeseed oil aren't just for cooking. You can use them as beauty products, too!

And, of course, The Coffee Scrub includes all of these anti-aging, moisturizing, and healing oils.

In fact, each oil has its own special properties:

  • Olive oil moisturizes the skin without clogging your pores and prevents environmental irritants from damaging your skin.
  • Macadamia nut oil is known for its high fatty acid content. These fatty acids help prevent early aging and encourage cell regeneration.
  • Grapeseed oil contains antimicrobial and antioxidant properties that help fight acne, tighten the skin, and protect it from the sun.
  • Almond oil can prevent and heal scars and stretch marks due to its retinoid and emollient properties. 

As a result, the benefits of adding these oils into your body scrub is monumental. 

Mentha Aquatica, Cinnamon Cassia Essential Oil, and Vanilla Extract 

What do mentha aquatica, cinnamon cassia essential oil, and vanilla extract all have in common?

They smell like heaven.

But did you know they also have skin healing properties as well?

Because these ingredients smell so good, it’s easy to think that’s their only purpose. However, they also happen to have a list of benefits:

  • Mentha aquatica leaves the skin feeling minty and fresh while preventing itchy eczema and pesky acne.
  • Cinnamon cassia essential oil smells like home and can relieve achy joints and stress due to its cinnamaldehyde and eugenol properties.
  • Vanilla extract contains polyphenol — Vanillin — and vitamin B, which detoxes free radicals while reducing inflamed and irritated skin.

When you use products from The Coffee Scrub company, you can rest easy knowing every ingredient counts and is used with your beautiful skin in mind.

Vitamin E, Glycerin, and Water

These ingredients may be last on the list, but they are definitely not the least. In fact, these remaining ingredients have a handful of great benefits, just like all the others do:

  • Vitamin E easily absorbs into the skin — fighting off free radicals and preventing UV damage.
  • Glycerin promotes a quick cell regeneration process, superior skin hydration, and is a natural preservative.
  • Water helps blend all the ingredients together while giving your skin an extra boost of hydration.

And that’s it. Those are all the magical ingredients used by The Coffee Scrub.

No secrets, no chemicals, and no gimmicks here, beauty queen!

Are You Curious About Making a Homemade Coffee Scrub?

If you’re a DIY beauty type of gal, we totally respect that, but you’ll want to stay away from doing it yourself this time around.

While DIY recipes for beauty products are generally a great idea, we highly suggest leaving the coffee scrubs to the professionals.

Trust us on this one — The Coffee Scrubmakes it easier on your wallet and schedule to provide your skin with the self-care it deserves.

Here Are the Reasons Why a Homemade Coffee Scrub Is a Bad Idea

Let’s begin by reviewing the main ingredients for a DIY coffee scrub, and why we should leave it up to the professionals:

  • The light-weight and crumbly nature of coffee grounds combined with easy-to-spill oil can turn your kitchen into a mess faster than you can say caffeine.
  • A homemade coffee scrub will only last a week, or one month maximum, due to its lack of natural preservatives.
  • The process of grinding your coffee properly is key to avoid damaging your skin.

And don’t you remember all those anti-aging, cellulite reducing, and cell regenerating ingredients used in The Coffee Scrubrecipe?

We know you do.

It could take a lot of time and money to create a high-quality version of your own DIY coffee scrub recipe.

And of course you don’t want to miss out on all those skin-tightening and glow-producing ingredients.

So, here it is in a nutshell.

The professionals at The Coffee Scrub have all the materials required to provide high-quality coffee scrubs that are both safe and beneficial for your skin.

The Coffee Scrub Gives You the Self-Care You Need

Are you ready for refreshed, youthful, and radiant skin?

Do you care about what’s inside your beauty products — prioritizing organic, high-quality ingredients?

Then look no further, because you have found the holy grail of body scrubs. In fact, we pride ourselves on the use of pure and intentional ingredients.

The Coffee Scrub is just what you need if you want to:

  • Reduce the appearance of early aging and cellulite.
