Get Rid Of Dry Skin, Stat

Is anyone else’s skin thrown by the changes in weather we’ve been having? One day it’s sunny, the next it’s raining, the next we’re stuck in a polar vortex. Our legs might not be seeing the light of day anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean we’re cool with their current state: dry, scaly, itchy.

What we need is to press the reset button and start from square one, which can only mean one thing: major exfoliation. Here’s the best DIY coffee scrub; think of it like your morning coffee, but for your legs. The sugar will slough off dry skin, the caffeine in the coffee will tone and brighten, and the coconut oil is perfect for ensuring your skin stays moisturized. Read below for our DIY Coffee Scrub recipe; trust us, it will make your Monday better…


1 cup Ground Coffee

7 tablespoons Coconut Oil

2 tablespoons Coconut Palm Sugar


Combine all ingredients together in a jar. Stir well. Massage in circular motion on your legs to exfoliate, and wash off with warm water once you’re done.
