This homemade oatmeal coffee scrub is the breakfast your skin has been craving for a while.
I call this a breakfast scrub because it contains three foods that are usually eaten in the morning.
Also, I love oatmeal and coffee for breakfast.
So I made this emollient body scrub to treat your skin with good food.
Another thing I should mention is that this scrub does not contain any oils.
And that’s because I want you to tweak the recipe as you like.
So during hot Summer days, you can mix this DIY oatmeal coffee scrub with water for non-oily skin exfoliation.
Or mix it with coconut oil during the Fall/Winter season for a rich moisturizing body exfoliation.
That’s what makes this scrub extra special.
Now let’s get into it.
How to make homemade oatmeal coffee sugar scrub
- Brown sugar 1/3 cup
- Oatmeal 1/3 cup
- Coffee grounds 1/3 cup
Directions to make oatmeal coffee scrub
- The measurement of your ingredients depends on the size of your glass jar.
- Mine was an 8-ounce jar, hence the measurements.
- But if you want to make a bigger batch, double or triple the ingredients.
- Just make sure it is in a ratio of 3:3:3.
- Add one ingredient at a time if you want your scrub to look cute like mine.
- Or mix all three ingredients and transfer them into a wide-mouth jar with an airtight lid.
- The tight cover prevents moisture and keeps the scrub mixture fresh until you are ready to use it.
How to use your oatmeal coffee body scrub
When ready to use your oatmeal coffee scrub, mix it with a little water to make a paste before you shower.
That will give the ingredients time to soak up water and for the oats to produce milk.
Apply the creamy paste to your body after showering.
Then exfoliate gently and leave it on for several minutes.
Next, rinse it with lukewarm water.
Dry your body, and use a light moisturizer.
This scrub is excellent for exfoliating and reducing the appearance of goosebumps skin.
Vital things to know about the DIY oatmeal coffee scrub
- This is a very messy scrub, so you’d have to clean your shower or tub after using it.
- Also, only mix the oatmeal coffee scrub with water when ready to exfoliate.
- It would go bad if you mix it with water overnight.
- But you can mix this exfoliant with coconut oil and store it in the fridge.
