While we’ll certainly be celebrating National Coffee Day with a cup of joe or specialty brew (vanilla latte, anyone?), this year, we thought it’d be fun to venture outside the box, err bag. So with our favorite caffeinated holiday on the horizon, we’re shining the spotlight on java-infused skincare—homemade, of course. From bar soaps and body scrubs to face masks and eye creams, these are the DIY recipes that have us buzzing.

Coffee Sugar Scrub Cubes

Looking for a unique and totally gift-worthy riff on traditional sugar scrub? These cute little cubes slough off dry skin, smooth, and soften. Plus, they’re super easy to make.

Bronzing Caffeine Body Butter Bar

A cellulite-busting, bronzing caffeine butter bar? Sounds almost too good to be true, but rest assured it’s real! Caffeine—the star of most anti-cellulite creams—tightens and smooths skin, temporarily diminishing the appearance of lumps and bumps. (There isn’t a permanent cellulite solution…yet.) Plus, it delivers a subtle hint of color, perfect to stave off pasty stems all fall.

Mocha Face Mask

Rich mocha mask combines rhassoul and kaolin clay, cocoa powder, ground coffee beans, and cocoa butter. But it’s when you mix it that the (gentle cleansing) magic happens! And because the base is powder, you can whip up a big batch and use it later.
