How To Get Younger Looking Skin In 5 Minutes... Use Coffee and Follow These Easy Directions
The 3 Ingredient Scrub That Changed My Life
Who doesn't want younger looking skin that is dewy, supple & radiant? I was one of the lucky ones that never really needed to do anything special to my skin. I never had to worry about ways to keep my skin looking younger or the hassle of going through skin care products to find the perfect cure.
That all changed when I had my son (who is totally worth my past skin woes lol). My hormones went berserk and it's like I was given a new type of skin. It wasn't that younger skin that I was use to. It was dry and dull which showed fine lines around my eyes and blemishes. It made me look much older and tired. I'd had enough and I begin looking into natural treatments that would give me results. Fast!
I saw a spa commercial on TV one day that seemed to speak directly towards me. You know how it goes.
"Do you want younger looking skin? Are you tired of being mistaken for being older than you really are? We can make your skin look younger in just 5 minutes or your money back!"
(those commercials are so freaking convincing when you are desperate!)
Well I bought into the hype and decided to pay that lil spa a visit. It was very upscale and I had what was recommended, a scrub called The Egyptian Revitalizing Coffee Scrub. It was fairly quick and therefore I was kinda skeptical until I got a chance to get to a mirror and feel my face. The results were amazing! It definitely gave me younger looking skin. My face was soft, silky and simply beaming. I received so many compliments on my skin. A few people even asked if I was pregnant again because I was glowing.
A week later I noticed my skin starting to look dull again. I couldn't afford to visit the spa again. I immediately got online to see if I could find the ingredients that was in this coffee scrub. As I was browsing a forum I came across a coffee scrub recipe that looked promising and had a ton of good reviews from women raving about it. I decided it was worth a shot.
Well the stars in heaven must have been aligned perfectly because....
I went to the store to get the ingredients and ran into an old friend. We were chatting about old times when she commented about how gorgeous my skin was. I told her about the facial scrub I had received at a spa and that I was there to pick up some ingredients to try to recreate it at home. Well lo and behold she use to work in a day spa and confirmed that these were indeed the exact ingredients that was used in the Egyptian Revitalizing Coffee Scrub. She gave me the exact measurements and I hurried home to try it out.
It was a success! The recipe was dead on and I have been using this scrub once a week for a whole year now!! I am passing it along to anyone out there who is tired of having dull, dry, tired looking skin and want a easy, quick and cheap natural method to achieving youthful skin. I can not tell you how much better I feel to have such beautiful younger looking skin. I've already got almost all of the women in my family hooked to this coffee scrub. I hope that you will enjoy this scrub as much as I do.
