One of the best ways to pamper yourself is to get a body scrub, leaving your skin fresh, vibrant and smoother than silk. After a long, tough winter we wanted to brighten up the dull and lackluster appearance of our skin using a mild exfoliation which will help better absorb moisturizer.
The inclusion of cannabis infused olive oil in this scrub helps to revitalize and reenergize your skin cells as well as treat any inflammation or sore muscles you might be experiencing. Cannabinoids have been shown to reduce the appearance of acne and have anti-aging properties and cell regeneration support which helps to boost your skin's protective shield.
Caffeine for the Win
This recipe also includes recycled coffee grounds because when applied topically caffeine provides anti-oxidants and works to tighten the skin. Some women swear by coffee scrubs to treat cellulite.
This recipe is dead simple to make and only took a couple of minutes to prepare. I'm definitely going to make it a regular part of my beauty routine!
Note: The coffee grounds do make for a messy rinse off... Don't be alarmed by them, they wash away!
