5 Homemade Coffee Face Scrub RecipesFacial scrubs with plastic microbeads are gentle to the skin, but alas they are not eco-friendly, so environmentally conscious consumers avoid them. Luckily, there are plenty of natural exfoliating agents that are suitable even for sensitive skin. Ground coffee is one of them. If you’re a fan of DIY facial scrubs with natural ingredients, check out these amazing coffee face scrub recipes that you can try at home.

Coconut & Honey Coffee Face Scrub

This homemade face scrub contains only three ingredients that ensure a cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, nourishing, antibacterial and anti-fungal effect. Coffee grounds polish the skin and make it smoother, coconut oil provides the skin with nutrients and keeps it hydrated, and honey has antimicrobial and soothing properties.

Melt ½ cup of coconut oil in a microwave or a double boiler. Add 1 tbsp regular or manuka honey (if it’s too thick, you can melt it as well, just don’t let it boil) and 1 cup of fresh coffee grounds. Mix all ingredients together until well-combined. Gently apply the scrub over your face, massage the skin with fingertips, and remove the scrub with a warm, wet washcloth.

If you’re allergic to honey, you can leave it out. The scrub will work just fine even without this ingredient.
