First, here’s a little reminder on the benefits of a coffee scrub: Caffeine is considered the best ingredient to fight stubborn skin conditions by stimulating blood flow, toning, and tightening the skin (goodbye, cellulite and stretch marks). Coffee is also rich in antioxidants, which aids in detoxing and releasing toxins (hello, clear skin)!
To see fast and fantastic changes, we recommend scrubbing your skin at least two to three times a week. Combine your scrubbing with exercise, healthy eating, and h2o, and you’ll be glowing like never before. For those of you rare and lucky babes who aren’t plagued with skin issues, then think of a regular body scrub as a way to treat yourself to the best self-care and smoothest skin ever.
To achieve the most gorgeous head-to-toe glow, here are some scrub tips to know:
STEP ONE: STRIP DOWN
For an instant spa date, all that’s needed is a babe and a BodyBlendz bag. We also like to spread the love (and scrub) around, so for even more fun – bring your fave scrub buddy with you, and introduce them to getting dirty with coffee. Strip down, step into the shower (or bath if you’re a bathtub kinda babe), and get your scrub on!
STEP TWO: SCRUB UP
Once your skin is wet and your pores are open from the warm water, grab a handful of scrub, and rub it onto your skin, using slow, circular motions. Cover your body completely, or focus on problem areas. Scrub firmly on rough spots like the back of your arms, elbows, knees and feet, and gently on delicate areas like your face.
STEP THREE: WAIT IT OUT
Patience babes…wait at least ten minutes before removing the scrub. This will allow your skin to benefit from all the nourishing ingredients. Lovin’ the scrubbin’? Share your joy, get social, and take some selfies while you wait! Dry your hands, grab your phone, and post your scrub-in-the-tub pics on Instagram with #doyouevenscrub.
STEP FOUR: RINSE, DRY, APPLY
You’ll probably notice at this point that your scrub buddy won’t be able to take their hands off you…the soothing oils will have made your skin irresistibly smooth to the touch. But to really lock in moisture and hydrate your skin, finish off your treatment by removing scrub with a good rinse, dry off, and apply your favorite, natural lotion.
Voilà babes! Smoothest. Skin. Ever.
