Wake Your Skin Up with this Sustainable Scrub

Coffee isn't just the best thing to wake up to in the morning, it is amazing for your skin, too! With the enormous amount of coffee grounds we consume a day, it's nice to know some brands are putting it to good use {zerowaste!!}. Optiat takes Arabica coffee grounds, and all-natural ingredients to help moisturize, stimulate blood circulation, reduce cellulite & acne and create smooth & silky skin. Who knew caffeine could be so useful on the body?! Click below to learn more about Optiat's coffee scrubs, and find a How-To video in case you are wondering how in the world to use it... It's simple.. I promise!

Cool fact: Used brewed coffee grounds actually have more antioxidants than freshly ground coffee. 

The Lemongrass & Peppermint Coffee Scrub is energizing and stimulating for the skin. If you love a really fresh scent, this is perfect for you! Lemongrass works as a pain reliever, and helps boost confidence and energy. Peppermint stimulates the mind {I think it works great for headaches}, and gives your skin a healthy glow. 

Detox and refresh your skin with the Lemon & Black Pepper Detoxing Coffee Scrub. Black pepper is known to hold antibiotic properties, and act as a remedy for colds and flu. I think if you are ever feeling a little under the weather or need to clear up some skin, this is the scrub to use! 

All scrubs are paired with Vitamin E & Sweet Almond Oil to hydrate and moisturize, Himalayan Salt for antiseptic and Brown Sugar for exfoliation. 

When you are finished with your tin, refill them easy with their Paper Refills.

Curious as to how to apply the coffee scrub? I've created my first ever Sustainably Chic How-To video!! In this video, I'm using the Clove & Cinnamon Soothing Scrub which has an aroma known to reduce anxiety and help create a more calm mind and body {exactly what I need at the end of everyday - I'm sure a lot of you can relate!}. I know summer is just beginning, but I'm already a little over it here in the South - this scent reminds me of fall & that couldn't make me happier ;)

So go ahead, and grab some for yourself! Shop Optiat online, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram!!
