After being out in the hot summer sun, and dealing with hard water in our new house, my skin was in need of a little rejuvenation.  While it would be really awesome to check myself into a spa for the weekend, it’s so much cheaper, and more convenient to rejuvenate your skin at home.

I decided to whip up a quick DIY facial scrub to help soften and smooth my skin.  This facial scrub is really very simple to make, and you probably already have the ingredients for it on hand.

DIY Brown Sugar & Coffee Facial Scrub

All you need for this Brown Sugar & Coffee Facial Scrub is:

6 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar

3 Coffee K-Cups (You can use 6 tablespoons of coffee if you don’t have K-Cups)

10 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

TIP:  Use flavored coffee to infuse a wonderful smell into your facial scrub.  I used caramel, and it smells heavenly!

Directions:

Open the (unused) K-Cups and pour the grounds into a food processor.

Add the brown sugar, and grind the brown sugar and coffee together for a minute or two until finely ground.

Pour brown sugar and coffee mixture into a bowl, and gradually add the olive oil until you get the scrub consistency that you desire.  I like to keep mine on the thicker side.  This recipe will make enough scrub to last roughly 6 uses when used sparingly.  Store in a sealed jar.

Rejuvenate in the Shower

In addition to using this Brown Sugar & Coffee Facial Scrub, I switched out my old shower head for a Rejuvenator Micro Bubble Hand Held Showerhead.  This is not just any shower head, though.  The Rejuvenator generates millions of tiny microbubbles that naturally cleanse, exfoliate, and rejuvenate the skin, for a healthier look.  It’s really like having a spa experience at home in the shower every day!

As the water hits my skin when I shower, it just somehow feels lighter than it used to with my old showerhead.  I don’t feel like it is just bouncing off of my skin, but I feel like it’s actually cleansing it deep within.  Since using the Rejuvenator, I have noticed that my skin feels softer, and it takes less time for me to wash the shampoo and conditioner out of my hair than it used to.

The Rejuvenator was really easy to install, and you can even keep your old shower head up alongside the Rejuvenator if you want to.  You can switch between them, or you can use them at the same time.

Another great thing about using the Rejuvenator, is that it uses 30-40% less water than traditional shower heads. That’s great for the environment, and your wallet, too!

Disclosure:I received this product at no cost, in exchange for my honest review and opinion.
