The Coffee Scrub 

“In our opinion the best body scrubs are made from coffee and honey. Coffee peeling exfoliates dead skin cells, smooths and firms the skin.” says esthetician and co-founder of Atelier Beauté, Aneta Zuraw. “Honey takes care of moisture. It’s cheap, easy to prepare, and is perfect for the care of the face and body.” 

“We recommend using the peeling 2-3 times a week, but also when the skin looks gray, rough and dull,” says  her co-founder and fellow esthetician Darya Rzaca.  “Performing a body scrub brings immediate results and it is best to use regularly, because it will allow you to enjoy the long-term benefits of this treatment.”

1. Brew enough coffee to create 3 tablespoon of coffee grounds. For a stronger exfoliation, use 4 tablespoons or as desired. 

2. Mix with 5 tablespoons of honey and 5 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl until thick. 

3. Apply the scrub to damp skin, massage it gently for a minute, then rinse with warm water and dry with a towel.

3. Massage the blend into your sin and rinse with water.
