Expensive cellulite creams have one ingredient in common – caffeine! Rather spending hundreds of dollars on anti-cellulite product, you can make your own cellulite treatment with caffeinated coffee grounds that works beautifully.
Coffee grounds can also be used an exfoliant. The coarse nature of the substance helps tto remove the dead skin and reduce the size of your pores. The use of coffee grounds on your skin will also firm and tone your skin.
Coffee Body Scrub
2 cups of coarsely ground coffee
1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
2-3 teaspoon of olive oil
Mix all ingredients together.
Take a hot shower to moisten your skin and open your pores.
Apply the coffee mixture to your cellulite areas using your hands or a loofah mitt. Using wide circular motions,rub the coffee exfoliate onto your skin with strong pressure.
Shower off, pat skin dry and apply a thin layer of your favorite body lotion.
