Our favorite DIY coffee exfoliating scrub

The lazy days of summer are great for our psyches, but tough on our skin — leaving it dull and dehydrated. Ready to bring back your glow? Our DIY coffee exfoliating scrub makes it easy to nourish and hydrate parched summer skin.

Coffee is an amazing exfoliator for sloughing away dead skin cells and is loaded with antioxidants to help nourish skin. Plus, caffeine in coffee may improve circulation in the skin, giving you a healthy glow. Our DIY scrub also includes coconut oil, an amazing natural moisturizer.
