Making a scrub and actually using it is probably something that’s nice to think about but the last thing you have time for – here is where we can help! Enjoy a moment to yourself, surrounded by aromas of your favourite coffee blend and a hint of sweet coconut oil.
Time is precious for us multi-tasking Mama’s but the busier you are, the more you need to take time and care for yourself. One of my mantras is that
“The glowing woman is time poor, but know that being the best version she can be will enable her to have strength, take pride in herself and care for others”.
Here is a skin-saving coffee scrub and mask you can mix up and use in the 15 minutes you have in the bathroom – even with the little ones running around on the floor. The best thing about these scrubs is that they so natural you can eat them and they really work instantly.
This is a purifying mask for your entire body and is perfect for the shower; all it takes is 3 extra minutes.
WHAT YOU NEED
1/2 cup ground Organic Coffee (used or unused)
1 tablespoon of Raw Organic Sugar
1 tablespoon of Organic Coconut Oil METHOD
Combine in a cup all ingredients together until a scrub like consistency.
· Coffee is full of antioxidants protecting from free radicals whilst stimulating collagen growth.
· The sugar granules gently exfoliate the skin to rid dead cells and boost the skins natural renewal process.
· Coconut oil is full of fatty acids, which help moisturize and keep bacteria out. It also contains Lauric acid – the main fatty acid with proven anti-fungal, antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits.
No time to DIY? Try a pre-packaged coffee scrub, my favourite is by Frank Body available at Mecca Maxima.
Us time-poor mama’s really do need to look after ourselves, this scrub really smells divine, leaves skin feeling smooth, hydrated and will give you a beautiful morning pick-me-up to stay glowing all day long.
