How about a cup of Java for your skin!?

I keep my skin and haircare products as simple as possible, using natural ingredients and castille soap since there are so many hidden toxins in personal care products.

I saw this recipe for a Coffee Skin Scrub and wanted to share it with you guys. I love that its re-purposing something that would otherwise be thrown away and keeps with my motto of Simple is Better.

Caffeine on your skin has proven to be really beneficial. It can help improve circulation when applied to the skin. Removes dead skin cells to brighten and liven your skin. I know what I'm doing with the grounds from my next cup of Java! Cheers!!
