Summit Sweet Skunk Coffee Facial, Hair, and Cellulite Scrub

June 6, 2014 by: Jessica Catalano Skin Care ,Vegan

Pampering yourself doesn’t have to be expensive because there are a few tricks you can employ in the comfort of your own home that will save you time and money.

This simple coffee scrub uses recycled coffee grounds combined with Summit Sweet Skunk and can be used in three different ways to leave your skin and hair feeling like you just had a high-end spa treatment.

Summit Sweet Skunk hails from Summit County in Colorado at High Country Healing in the town of Silverthorne. This is one of the highest elevated cannabis clubs in the world providing organic quality medicine. They have knowledgeable staff who are exceptionally friendly and go out of their way to take care of your medical needs.

Summit Sweet Skunk was bred by this dispensary and packs a powerful Sativa dominant punch for medicinal use.

When used raw and topically in a face scrub, the terpenes, THC, and essential oils of the plant fortify your skin and hair. These raw natural parts of the plant have anti-oxidant, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects on your skin.

The first rendition of this recipe is a skin exfoliate scrub that will leave your face and body feeling buzzed, smooth and soft with a glow. Coffee grounds combined with almond oil and freshly cured cannabis will slough off dead skin, remove dirt, and purge pores by tightening the skin.

Both the cannabis and coffee will actually help to reduce puffiness and swelling in the skin which will give your face a lifted look with repeated weekly use.

The second option to this recipe is transforming it from facial scrub to a treatment on your mane.

When worked into your hair, this wonderful concoction will remove product build up from strands. As your hair dries, it will produce smooth locks from the almond oil and cannabis which will add a glossy shine. It is not advised for light colored hair as it will darken the tones in your hair and produce undesirable results if you want to keep your hair light.

But, if during the winter you want to add low light colors to your mane on lighter hair, this is a great natural option to use. On brunettes and red heads, this scrub will add warm tones to your hair with continual use.

The final alternative use for this recipe is to add a few extra ingredients to create a cellulite scrub that will help problem areas such as thighs, upper legs, and your booty. Coffee grounds will remove excess water retention at the skin’s surface which will improve the circulation. This helps skin to appear firmer, less lumpy, and will lessen pockets. If you were to pair this cellulite scrub with healthy diet and daily exercise, you will be saying goodbye to cellulite before you know it.
