Hi my beautiful ladies…
So finally autumn is here.... cooler nights and drier days. Although days are still a bit hot, but evenings and nights have started changing. 

With the change in weather, we also experience changes in our skin and hair. My dry hair becomes super duper frizzy and much drier, while my combination skin experiences major bout of dry patches. And no amount of body butters can help my body skin in this weather. So I devised a new d-i-y recipe where I use two of my favourite ingredients and whipped up a super duper face and body scrub. 

Presenting my dear ladies specially for you 

Coffee & Coconut Moisturizing Face & Body Scrub





It is a very easy to make scrub and leaves your skin moisturised, smooth, soft and also, smelling super awesome. 


Ingredients 
 1. Ground Coffee Powder (I prefer hard grounds than Instant Coffee varients like Nescafe or Bru)
2. Grated Dry Coconut (You can grate fresh or buy from the market)





3. Curd for normal to dry skin or milk for super dry skin 
4. Optional - Almond Oil and any essential oil of your choice. 
5. A steel or plastic bowl 



Method 
Add two to three table spoons of coffee powder in a bowl. I use this dark forest varient from Cafe Coffee Day, which is amazing for both your coffees to drink and for your skin as well. Add the same quantity of grated coconut powder to the mix. Dry mix them and keep aside for 3 to 4 minutes. Now, add curd or milk as per your skin type to make a paste. You can also add 5 to 6 drops of your favourite essential oil like Lavender, Patchouli, Geranium or Hazelnut and half a spoon of almond or olive oil for extra zing. Keep the mix aside for atleast 10 minutes before going to use it. 



How to use
This scrub is best used while having a shower as it is a bit messy. It can be used both on face and body, although those with sensitive skin or super oily skin should avoid it on face. Wet you body to make it damp and apply this on your body in circular motions. Rub more on places like elbows, thighs, knees, back of your neck which tends to be more neglected. Massage for atleast 10 to 15 minutes. Keep it for 5 more minutes and then, wash off with normal water. 

Benefits 
All the ingredients in this wonder scrub are awesome for the skin. Ground coffee is not just a great scrub, but has anti oxidant properties and also, moisturises the skin. Grated coconut adds to the scrubbiness, while it is filled with vitamin E and base oil to moisturise the skin and take care of pigmentation and marks. Curd or milk act as a natural bleach, working towards removing tan. Essential oils make the scrub even more exotic. I have tried it for three weeks (once in 15 days on weekends) and have not found the need to use a body lotion after using this scrub. Also, the tan on hands and legs has been considerably gone. 


PEL SHOUTS
The three-day weekend gives you loads of opportunities to pamper yourself. Do try this scrub for a spa like feeling and super smooth skin. This is not very expensive but leaves the skin as smooth as using a high end scrub and body butter. Those with normal to dry skin can easily skip moisturiser. Do try and tell me how you liked it....  

How did you find this D-I-Y?
