During the summer I am not much of a morning person I would rather get up later in the day; it takes me a while to actually get out of bed. I loathe the process but it has to be done. I decided to switch my facial scrubs because I was still feeling sleepy after I would use it. I know most of you know that feeling after you brush your teeth and wash your face you still feel sleepy, well this scrub is for you.
I am not a coffee person at all but my country lover loves the stuff, not too much in the summer but since he is driving 100 miles a day for work; he has been drinking lots of coffee to keep him a wake. That means left over coffee grounds that I can do whatever I want with. I have so many projects but my first one was to make a scrub that would keep me awake early in the morning. I think I found a great scrub I am going half to tweak it a little bit but for now it keeps me awake.
Start with a cup of wet coffee grounds in a bowl make sure the grounds are fine and not to big they will be abrasive on your face, squeeze 4 whole lemons into the coffee grounds.
Add a tbs of cornstarch to the mixture and stir the corn starch will help absorb any oils that was left on your face from the night before.
Strain the grounds from the liquid you want a bit of moisture not to much
Add a cup of sugar to the grounds
Mix well and make sure you you pick the seeds out
I do not use the facial scrub everyday just days when I just do not want to get out of the bed, and I know I need my morning to be up beat. I may or may not be a coffee ground addicted, but I know we all have those days where we just want to stay up in the morning. I would say this is great for me to use every other day weekends included 🙂
