DIY Coffee-Infused Scrub Recipe for Glowing Skin


1 cup of Organic Coffee Grounds:

Choose finely ground coffee for a gentle exfoliation. The coarseness of coffee grounds helps in removing dead skin cells.

1/2 cup of Brown Sugar:

Brown sugar adds an extra layer of exfoliation and is a natural source of glycolic acid, promoting healthy and youthful skin.

1/2 cup of Coconut Oil (or any carrier oil of your choice):

Coconut oil is deeply moisturizing and nourishing for the skin. It also helps bind the scrub together.

1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract:

Vanilla adds a delightful scent to the scrub, providing a calming and soothing aroma during the application.

Airtight Jar or Container:

To store your scrub and maintain its freshness.


Brew the Coffee:

Make a strong cup of coffee and allow it to cool. You can use the grounds left in your coffee maker for this recipe.

Combine Coffee Grounds and Brown Sugar:

In a mixing bowl, combine the organic coffee grounds and brown sugar. Stir the mixture well to ensure an even exfoliation.

Add Coconut Oil:

Melt the coconut oil and pour it into the coffee and sugar mixture. Mix thoroughly until you achieve a consistent, moist texture.

Incorporate Vanilla Extract:

Add the vanilla extract for a delightful fragrance. Stir the mixture well, making sure the vanilla is evenly distributed.

Transfer to an Airtight Container:

Spoon the mixture into an airtight jar or container. Seal it tightly to preserve the freshness of your scrub.

How to Use:

  • Wet your skin with warm water to open up pores.
  • Scoop out a small amount of the coffee scrub and gently massage it onto your skin in circular motions.
  • Focus on areas that need extra exfoliation, like elbows, knees, and heels.
  • Leave the scrub on for a few minutes to allow the ingredients to work their magic.
  • Rinse off with warm water and pat your skin dry.
  • Follow up with your favorite moisturizer for silky smooth skin.


  • Use the scrub 2-3 times a week for best results.
  • Perform a patch test before using the scrub to ensure you don’t have any allergies or adverse reactions to the ingredients.

Enjoy the rejuvenating and aromatic experience of your homemade coffee-infused scrub, leaving your skin exfoliated, moisturized, and glowing!
