Coffee can be an exfoliant by itself and in combination with other ingredients. Good coffee grounds facial scrub recipe is a blend of coffee with sea salt.

That compound has antibacterial properties and it is one more step to get rid of acne. Salt with coffee grounds combination gets rather strong scrub finally. That’s why yogurt or sour cream is recommended for tender efficiency.


  • 1 Tbsp of ground coffee
  • 1 tsp of sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp of yogurt or sour cream

Pour the coffee with boiling water. Leave it for 5-10 minutes. Make a mixture of sea salt, yogurt and strained coffee grounds.


Rub coffee ground scrub all over the face skin for 2-3 minutes.


Massage your face steering clear of your eyes.


Do not put much effort otherwise the skin may cause irritation. Do not leave the scrub on your face. Quickly wash it with warm water and wipe the face lotion to remove any residual.

If you have very sensitive skin use Homemade Coffee Face Scrub without salt.

I would appreciate your opinion.

    Is there treatment for irritation after coffee scrub?

    There is no need to do anything. Irritation goes down by itself after a while, let say 1-2 hours.
    If you’ve got very sensitive skin then you need to choose more gentle facial scrub, for example with grind oatmeal.
