|Coffee 'N Cream Dream Body Scrub
-1/2 cup freshly ground coffee beans (try a flavored blend like hazelnut-vanilla)
-1/2 cup buttermilk
-2 tbsp. olive oil
Combine all ingredients and stir or shake well. Add more oil for a thicker mixture. Use this creamy and fragrant body scrub in the shower to jump start your morning. But remember, buttermilk is perishable, so don't store this yummy stuff in the shower!
Benefits: Coffee exfoliates and the caffeine wakes up tired skin. Buttermilk sooths and smoothes, while the oil will leave your skin unbelievably soft and silky.
HG Fun Fact! Coffee was originally used for medicinal purposes, treating everything from heart disease to fevers and coughs. It wasn’t until people started craving the caffeine-buzz “side-effect,” that coffee took on the hot beverage form we know and love today!
HG Tip! For a guiltless but satisfying coffee treat, indulge in one of Starbucks' 35-calorie Iced Coffee Italian Roast Light drinks. This stuff is available at supermarkets, so you don't have to wait in coffee lines or use words like "venti."
