3. Coffee Face Scrub:

A popular face scrub that I’ve been dying to try is the coffee faces scrub. It just looks so fun to apply (that’s got to be another part of the stress relief appeal, right?). To make this interesting scrub combine coffee grounds, coconut oil, brown sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. You can also add about 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil to give the face scrub a uniquely you feel. Coffee grounds have antioxidants that can help exfoliate the skin, increase blood flow, and balance PH levels. Brown sugar also helps exfoliate skin and keeps it radiant and healthy.
