Body scrubs are a way of treating your body, similar to facial. It's an exfoliating cosmetic process which also cleanses your skin. It exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it healthy smooth and soft.

Adding coffee to your DIY body scrub can provide additional benefits that go  beyond what a bar of regular soap can do.

In a 1978 research from the University of Tennessee, researchers found that adding caffeine to anti-inflammatory creams can significantly increase their effectiveness. The caffeine in coffee helps to draw out excess moisture in the skin, leaving your skin brighter and smoother. It helps removing dead skin cells and exposing fresh and soft skin.

Caffeine even might help you get rid of cellulite. In a research about specific cosmetic cream containing caffeine, it was reported a reduced cellulite and circumference. Worth noting that it also indicates that additional large clinical trials are required.
