Benefits of Homemade Scrub:

The coffee in this scrub makes skin smooth and bright and helps with hydration and increase of skin elasticity. Coffee also enhances circulation, which can help with reducing the swelling of tissues and de-puffing areas of the skin. The natural glycol acid in the sugar helps condition and moisturize the skin, protecting it from toxins.
