Coffee Hand Scrub

23 Apr

This one is for coffee lovers.  Although I love the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee I do not drink it for fear of bouncing off the walls in a caffeine frenzy!  This scrub is a great exfoliater as well as a moistuiser.   This can be used on the feet as well as the hands.   I recommend that you put this on over the sink as it can get messy!


2 tblspn used ground coffee beans

2 tblspn cocoa (optional)

1 tspn boiling water

1 tspn cream or milk

2 tspn olive oil


  • Mix coffee and boiling water together to a paste.  Add the cocoa powder if using it.
  • Add cream/milk.   Then add the olive oil.
  • Pour a small amount over the hands and rub over the skin in a circular motion.
  • Repeat until all of the mixture has gone.
  • Rinse hands with water and pat dry

    Love this! I didn’t know coffee grounds could be use as exfoliant. I have to try this in the winter when my hands get really dry :)
