DIY Coffee Body Scrub

DIY Coffee

I wanted to try out the St. Tropez tanning products, but I’ve been too scared to be a streaky, mess and have had it stored in my cabinet for months.  In typically “Whitney fashion” I researched a ton before making the tanning plunge and word on the street is exfoliating is critical.


Of course I decided I was “ready” when I was fresh out of body scrub, so I took to my kitchen to figure out a home remedy… introduce, Whitney’s DIY Coffee Body Scrub:

  • 1/2 cup ground coffee
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup raw sugar
  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Use scrub in the shower… it’s going to make a mess!
  3. Massage onto wet skin in circular motions.
  4. Rinse (you may need to use a little soap, because the coconut oil resulted in WAY too many coffee grounds being stuck to my skin).


I then used the St. Tropez tanning lotion and couldn’t be happier! I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without trying it! No smell, no streaking (use their glove!), and a really nice, natural glow – February can’t get me down!
