Summer is coming! And with it comes the dawn of bathing suit season. No doubt, many of us are restarting their fitness regimes to get their bod ready for the beach, but there are other ways to battle cellulite! Using caffeine on your skin can help reduce the appearance of cellulite! And it just so happens that coffee grounds are rich in caffeine and is a great exfoliator! So the next time you make your cup of morning coffee, save the grounds instead of tossing them and make this DIY coffee body scrub!
What you’ll need:
¼ cup coffee grounds (used or fresh, fresh will contain more caffeine but will still work wonders)
2 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs olive oil
¼ cup sugar in the raw
Add all of these ingredients to your food processor and pulse until well mixed, feel free to add any extracts you’d like for fragrance, vanilla, lavender, rose… Pretty much whatever you darn well fancy!
Scoop into a plastic container or a mason jar and keep in a dry place in your shower. When ready to use, massage into skin and leave for a few minutes to let the caffeine do it’s job. Rinse off, and enjoy your smooth skin!
Do not use on your face, the coffee grounds are too rough for sensitive facial skin.
