Love the smell of coffee, but not the taste? Well, I have the perfect scrub for you. OK, you can enjoy this scrub if you love drinking the robust stuff too.
This has easily become one of my all-time favorite body scrubs. In addition to giving you silky smooth skin, it eliminates the appearance of cellulite (yes, you heard me right). Women of all ages deal with this pesky little thing.
You will need: 2 cups coffee grounds (buy the cheap stuff, it works just as well), 1 cup raw coarse sugar and 3 tbps. olive oil.
Simply mix all of these ingredients into a large mixing bowl. You may need more oil than listed above. However, everyone is different. Make the scrub as oily or dry as you prefer.
The caffeine in the coffee helps diminish the appearance of cellulite and varicose veins! It also it increases circulation and reduces water retention. Score!
While in the shower rub the scrub onto your thighs and other problem areas in a circular motion. Let this scrub set for about 5 minutes. Rinse with cold water to close the pores. And remember to clean the shower soon after your coffee scrub action to avoid any brown stains.
Slip into those shorts or mini-skirt with no shame and show off those beautiful coffee scrubbed legs! Remember this is a temporary fix – for maximum results use this scrub at least 3x a week. Overtime, exercise and drinking loads of water will also help with those problem areas!
