It is fair to say I have a mild obsession with coffee. Since Mike purchased our little coffee stand and I discovered how to make bulletproof coffee, I finally understand all of those Facebook memes about coffee being right up there with oxygen. Now my days begin with a nice big, frothy cup… and often my afternoons begin with one too.
Coffee isn’t just good for your morning pick-me-up, though. Coffee grounds are terrific exfoliators, plus the caffeine is great for tightening and toning your skin! It has even been said that caffeine can help to lessen the appearance of cellulite… I mean really. As if we needed another reason to love it, right? So why stick to only drinking your java when you can do so much more – like making this delicious smelling Latte Sugar Scrub.
DIY Latte Sugar Scrub
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tbsp ground coffee
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup Almond oil
1 tsp vitamin e oil
-Using a large bowl add the brown and white sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and ground coffee.
-In a separate small bowl add almond oil and vitamin e oil and mix
-Now add the oil mixture into the sugar mixture.

This scrub smells absolutely divine, and will make you smell tasty all day as well. It also makes a great gift for your fellow coffee-loving friends. The coffee and sugar will gently exfoliate your skin while the vitamin e helps lock in moisture too – perfect for these cold winter months!
If you are a coffee addict like I am, you will absolutely love this scrub! It’s the perfect way to pamper your senses!
