DIY Face Scrub with Coffee, Coconut, Honey & Carrot Seed Oil

DIY face scrubGetting rid of dead skin by exfoliating with a face scrub reduces the buildup of dirt, bacteria, and dead skin in the pores and helps eliminate whiteheads.Face scrub, or a facial scrub, is a gentle exfoliating cleanser. It typically consists of small granular particles to get rid of old skin cells.

This allows new skin cells to emerge, resulting in refreshed skin. Besides, it deeply cleanses the skin. This type of cleansing smooths the skin and also softens it.

And where does the glow come from? The exfoliating process encourages blood flow to the surface of the skin, giving you that warm, healthy glow.

So, what are the best DIY face scrub ingredients? This is key. While gently exfoliating is important, what you use to exfoliate is crucial to maintaining healthy skin.

Most off-the-shelf facial scrubs contain chemicals that may seem high at first, but over time can cause problems for your skin.

The great news is that it is straightforward to make your face scrub right at home. Let’s dig right into this great DIY face scrub recipe!

How to Make Your DIY Face Scrub

By blending a few ingredients, you can make a fantastic face scrub, leaving you with soft, supple, and glowing skin. This coffee face scrub recipe is sure to be one of your favorites!

Let’s get started! You can make your DIY face scrub right in the jar that you plan to store it in, or you can make it in a small bowl and transfer it to a tight-lidded pot.

Pour the coconut oil and honey into the jar or bowl.

Coconut oil is a natural antifungal and antimicrobial ingredient. It also helps moisturize the skin. Raw honey is excellent for healing skin and helps absorb and retain moisture, which helps keep the skin soft and dewy.

This homemade face scrub with honey is just perfect for your weekly skin regimen.

Next, add the coffee grounds. You can even use this morning’s coffee grounds — what a great way to repurpose that coffee!

If you don’t drink coffee, you can purchase organic ground coffee for this recipe

Coffee contains antioxidants that can help heal the skin, but it also has just the right texture to work as a scrub, helping slough off those dead skin cells.

Blend the ingredients.

Add the carrot seed oil. Carrot seed oil is amber in color and is extracted from carrot seeds. It has been used for centuries due to its medicinal properties.

It can do wonders for dry, sun-damaged skin, and it can even help eliminate wrinkles. Carrot seed oil works well for both dry and oily complexions.

Now add the tea tree oil. Tea tree oil can help the skin stay healthy and blemish-free, making it a significant part of this homemade face scrub for acne.

Like carrot seed oil, tea tree oil contains antibacterial properties known as terpenes. It can help heal just about anything and is the perfect ingredient to add to this recipe.

Blend all of these ingredients, and you are all set to do a facial scrub. You can store the product in the fridge to help preserve it. (1)

Now, let’s try it! Make sure you have clean skin. You can even try my Homemade Face Wash. Pat your skin dry, then use a spoon or small spatula to scoop out a little facial scrub. Stand over the sink or do this in the shower to minimize any mess.

Gently rub the scrub over your face and neck (you can even put it on the backs of your hands!). Make sure to avoid the eyes. Once you have covered all areas, allow it to sit for a couple of minutes. Then gently rinse with warm water.

Pat your skin dry. Apply a dab of coconut oil or my Lavender and Coconut Oil Moisturizer. Repeat once or twice a week for best results.
