Homemade Firming Body Scrub Recipe

Natural Firming Homemade Body Scrub

 

As you already know besides for fitness I am also obsessed with everything beauty related. I am an absolute fanatic of good skin care, perfume, nail polish and lipstick :). Today I have an amazing body scrub recipe for you, I actually also use this scrub on my face as well, but if your skin is super sensitive I wouldn’t recommend it. But for the body this scrub is perfect!!!

These days it’s pretty hard to find a good body scrub that doesn’t contain chemicals, unless you buy one of those organic body scrubs but those will cost you an arm, a leg and a tail and will only last you through one or two uses. But if you make one at home from the products you have in your house anyway, it’s toxins free and it’s un expensive.

This body scrub is extremely exfoliating, firming, and moisturizing, the only problem it makes a little mess in your shower, but you should be cleaning your shower anyway after each time you use it ;).

 

The Ingredients

 

  • Ground Coffee ( coffee firms the skin ) – a hand full
  • Brown Sugar – a hand full
  • Sea Salt – a hand full
  • Organic Honey ( you don’t have to use organic honey, I just happen to have it ) – 3 table spoons
  • Coconut Oil – 1 table spoon

Mix the ingredients and enjoy it in your shower! It will make your skin glow!

If you try it let me know, I hope you love it as much as I do :).

    I found ur website this past week and I must say that I like ur workouts. I was just wondered if u eat carbs like bread and pasta whenever or just after u workout

      Hi Sydney, welcome to loving fit :)

      Of course I eat carbs, breads and pasta, I do make my own bread at home from either whole wheat or rye flower and sometimes from ground oats. I am not a big lover of pasta, but when I do eat it I stick to whole grain as well. My favorite form of carbs is quinoa, oats, basmati rice and couscous. I eat carbs with every meal, usually 1- 1.5 hours before my workout I make sure I get a good amount of carbs ( usually a Clif bar ) in me to have the energy to workout, I found them to give me the most energy. After my workout I eat carbs as well but only bananas or berries ( and my whey isolate protein shake of course ), bananas and berries are a perfect for of carbs after a workout. This is how I eat when I want to gain some muscle.

      When I want to loose body fat or just a few lbs, then I don’t eat anything after my workout for 2 hours. And I also try to eat my pre workout meal or snack 2 – 2.5 hours before the workout.

      Let me know if you have any more questions :).

    I’m a vegetarian and I know that u have to have Protein to build muscle do u have any suggestions as to where I can get my protein?

      Being a vegetarian is definitely a bit harder to gain muscle, and I’ve been researching this subject for a while. While doing my research I stumbled upon an amazing vegetarian blog, and found this article on how a vegetarian can gain muscle, it was one of the best articles I’ve ever read on that subject, here is the article http://www.nomeatathlete.com/gain-weight-vegan/

      One thing I can tell you for sure, is that if you are consuming a lot of soy, that can prevent you from gaining muscle, because soy has a lot of estrogen in it.

      You can combine different vegetables with beans, quinoa, brown rice, another great protein source is Chia Seeds.

    Hi Tatianna,

    I try not often to use coffee as a body scrub but your homemade bodyscrub is a killer one. I would have never thinking about adding some coconut oil for example. This is great.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Hi there, 

    Coffee firms the skin, caffeine is used in many products especially firming products.  Brown sugar and sea salt exfoliate the skin and rid of dead skin sells.  I have a great article I wrote about coconut oil here : http://www.lovingfit.com/nutrition/healthiest-oil-earth/  and an article on Raw Honey : http://www.lovingfit.com/nutrition/nutrition-facts/health-beauty-benefits-raw-honey/

    Hi-

    Is this for cellulite? Or just smooth skin? I’ve been using it thinking it’s a coffee grounds cellulite recipe and doing it daily- and I just realized maybe it’s not for cellulite!

    Thanks!

  • Nancy Laurin

    Hi, just tried it this am and LOVE it! Put the remaining portion in the fridge to use another time, warmed up of course! How often do you recommend doing it.?
