Anti-Cellulite, All Natural Ground Coffee Body Scrub

Good coffee is more than a morning miracle for most of us, it also has amazing exfoliating and anti-cellulite properties! That's right ladies, after you are done brewing the lifeblood of your day, you can use those grounds for amazing things!! Here's what I did:



Place warm coffee grounds in a small bowl mix with a base oil. I use jojoba because it penetrates the deepest of all oils. But, any carrier will work just fine. Try anything from apricot, almond, to olive. Take the bowl of grounds and oil to the shower with you.

Start by grabbing some out of the bowl and massaging it in circular motions on your body concentrating on the areas you may want to exfoliate or experience problems with cellulite. I usually start with my thighs and legs. After you are done buffing your beautiful body, rinse WELL. I mean this. It's easy to loose some grounds in a crevice or two - make sure you are well rinsed! Run your hands over every surface to feel for left grounds.

After this is a great time to shave. you legs will have never felt smoother - I promise you.

Here's the before and after (I realize that I am being very brave by posting this - and I apologize for the lack of quality in the picture taking....it's not very easy to take pics of your own getaway sticks).

I can definitely see less bumps and it does appear to be smoother over all! Success!




Now, where'd my husband go?

i'll have to try this. i've made sugar scrubs with jojoba or almond oil - and they are effective...don't know about the cellulite though.

Can you use cold grounds, a few hours after you've brewed coffee?

I've read that caffeine in these kinds of scrubs is a huge helper.

Yep, I'm going to buy some coffee today. If I can't be back in my old shape in time for Florida, at least I can be smooth!!

Yea, you can use cold, but it wouldn't be as awesome for you - and maybe not as effective either. I'm not sure. I guarantee it will still exfoliate like a mo fo though.

Ohhhh, I love this idea! I'm totally doing this tonight, thanks!

And, thank you, too for your comment on my blog. It made me laugh out loud. :)

gypsy_jewels said...

Awesome!! If you do try it, please come back and leave a comment about your experience with it!!

lumin said...

I tried it, but instead of oil, I mixed my fresh brewed coffee grounds in sea salt & sugar (the sugar helps the skin hydrate). I did my legs, and that felt wonderful, so I did my tummy, that led to my arms & hands... my skin looks & feels AWESOME.

That's great! I'm so glad that you guys are giving it a try. It's really a wonderful thing!

For me the best anti cellulite solution which had some great results is Revitol Cellulite Solution . Everybody should try it.
