Body scrubs help you exfoliate dead skin from your body, making it look fresher, smoother, and healthier.

Of course, there are various store-bought options to choose from, but why spend money on something if you can make it at home?

A body scrub is a mixture of liquid and exfoliating ingredients that gently remove the dead skin from your body and boosting your blood circulation.

The most popular components of a DIY body scrub are coconut oil, olive oil, Aloe Vera, honey, coffee granules, brown sugar, green tea, and many other beneficial ingredients.

All these ingredients have nutritional, moisturizing, and exfoliating features.

So mixing them in the proper amount and exfoliating your body once in a while will not only make your skin smooth but will also help you to relax and enjoy the process.

Here are our favorite homemade body scrubs that will give you the absolute feeling of soft, fresh, and vibrant skin.

While most of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen, we did include a few recommended products in case you need to shop for them.


Coffee is a common component for a lot of homemade body scrubs.

Due to its tiny granules, coffee is not harsh on the skin but shows effective results for removing the dead cells from your skin, making it smooth and soft.


It is so easy to make this body scrub. All you will need is

  • 1/2 cup coffee grounds,
  • 2 tbsps. of hot water
  • 1 tbsp. of melted coconut oil

No products found.

How to make it

Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and thoroughly blend them.

You don’t want the consistency to be runny, so you can add as many coffee granules as you get the damp-sand-like texture.

After getting the desired consistency, gently apply it to your body in circular motions for 3-5 minutes and wash it with lukewarm water.

You will instantly feel the softness of your skin after pat-drying the scrubbed area. It also helps to get rid of dark spots, cellulite, and sun-damage.

It is best to use this scrub two times a week.

To get better results for brightening, you should use the scrub 2-3 times a week.

final words

If you have dry or sensitive skin, you should apply the scrubs as gently as possible.

Do not rub the granules too aggressively, as it will not be effective and will cause worse results.

It is more than enough to exfoliate your skin two times a week, so do not overuse them.

Additionally, it is easier and more fun to make body scrubs at home than to buy one from the store.

You will get the same nourishing, hydrating, and exfoliating effect with DIY scrubs. So it is essential to include this treatment in your skincare routine as it is beneficial for having silky, fresh, and healthy skin.
