DIY Moisturizing Exfoliating Coffee Scrub

I don’t know about you, but my skin is incredibly dry in the winter.  It’s gets pretty cold around here in Boston and my poor skin sure pays the price.  I am always looking for ways to keep my skin moisturized and over the weekend I got a brilliant idea.  I decided that I wanted to make a homemade coffee scrub.  Being the coffee addict that I am, I figured it would have a dual purpose by moisturizing and smelling awesome.

I headed to Walmart to grab some Jergens moisturizer to use in my scrub.  I couldn’t decide which one to get, so I grabbed a bottle of Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer (Green Tea Oil) and a bottle of Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer (Coconut Oil).  I only needed one for my scrub, but with my super dry skin this winter, I figured they would both be good to have on hand.

Jergens at Walmart

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/3 Cup Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer (Coconut Oil)
  • 1/3 Cup ground coffee
  • 1/3 Cup brown sugar

You will also need:

  • 8 oz jar

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer is the perfect moisturizer to use in this scrub. It absorbs two times faster, which makes for soft skin that lasts for a full 24 hours.  Plus all you have to do it apply it to wet skin and it instantly locks in moisture on your wet skin!

I am loving it so far. How do you keep your skin moisturized in the winter?

  101. What a really unique idea! I haven’t heard of putting coffee in a skin scrub before, but it seems like it would be a natural exfoliant. And coconut oil is pretty much the nectar of the gods for skincare, so this must really moisturize your skin well.
