Coffee Grounds Can Double As An Exfoliator

Those coffee beans you grind each morning can apparently perk up your skin as well as your eyes. You can use coffee grounds to make an exfoliator that could save you from having to buy expensive beauty products that do the same thing.

Writing at And Then She Saved, a blogger takes the tip, which she got from Glamour magazine, and put it into practice, providing a how-to guide.

Step 1: Drain the liquid out of the grounds and scoop it into a bowl.

Step 2: Rub it on your face with gentle movements, but stay away from your eyes.

Step 3: Rinse it off with warm water.

Advantages include a fresh, possibly caffeinated face. Disadvantages include smelling like coffee and a mess in your bathroom.
