“FRIDAY SPA DAY”
I was in GA this weekend making coffee after a long day painting and decided to make a a Coffee Scrub for my body to go take a long hot shower and rejuvenate my skin and cleanse off all the days toxins. So gather up those grounds from the pot……
Coffee Body Scrub with Coconut Oil
Coffee scrub is known to help reduce cellulite. I don’t claim this although it would be an added bonus. I found that the coffee scrub really helped to firm and smooth the skin.
Cellulite enemy #1 is caffeine, which tightens and provides antioxidants to the skin when applied topically. When applied religiously, it has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite—especially over time. Here, we combine coffee grounds with moisturizing, skin-soothing coconut oil and a bit of sea salt for an extra exfoliating kick. By massaging this trifecta onto any problem area, you’ll stimulate blood flow resulting in smoother, firmer skin.
My coffee body scrub also smells amazing! I am a die-hard coffee lover, so I am in heaven when I use it.
