After you’ve made a fresh pot of coffee, do you throw away the grounds?

Well, you may want to start keeping them. Coffee grounds are amazingly good for your skin — they can tighten pores, battle wrinkles, increase circulation and even diminish cellulite.

Needless to say, it’s well worth your while to turn those grounds into a homemade body scrub. It only has two ingredients, and there’s a good chance you already have both of them at home.

You will need:

  • 1 cup coffee grounds
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil

Just mix them together and you’re ready to improve the look of your skin!
