I don’t want to make some crazy assumption here… but I’m pretty positive that we all have a little bit of cellulite somewhere on our bodies. I guess it’s just a kind of a part of being a woman?
Personally, I’ve found that even when I am working out very regularly and eating like a total champ, I still have this little section of cellulite just right underneath my butt cheeks. TOTALLY ANNOYING.
I’ve read for years about how using a coffee scrub on your effected areas ( when combined with eating healthy & exercising of course ) can help drastically reduce the appearance of your cellulite. But is it true?? Could it really be that easy?
Well, I figured why don’t we all try it out together and find out for ourselves?! I scoured Pinterest for the best DIY coffee scrub recipes to come up with my own that resulted in this:
DIY Coffee Scrub Aka Cellulite Blaster:
1/2 cup of brown sugar.
1 cup of coffee grounds ( don’t use decaf!! )
3 tbs raw organic coconut oil.
All you do is combine these ingredients together and store them in a glass container. I keep mine in my shower so it’s convenient to use every day.
How it works:
Cellulite is formed when fat cells push into the skins middle layer, pulling on the connective tissue, causing the dimply look. It’s appearance can be effected by diet, hormones, metabolism, even the thickness of your skin.
The antioxidants and caffeine in the coffee dilate & stimulate your blood vessels, which in turn, tones & tightens your skin and tissue. The sugar further exfoliates the dead skin cells away, while the coconut oil gives you a healthy dose of plumping and hydration.
Apply your scrub in small circular motions to the affected areas for a few minutes each day. Think of it as giving yourself a nice little caffeinated massage. Rinse with warm water and pat your skin dry.
That easy! If you’d prefer to just buy a scrub instead of making it yourself, this is one of the best ones I’ve found.
So let’s all do this together for a few weeks then report back here to see if it helped?!
Also, even if you are not a sufferer of cellulite, regular exfoliation of the skin on your entire body is very important! Using a coffee sugar scrub will not only make you feel like you are majorly pampering yourself, it will wake up your senses, and help your skin be the healthiest it can be.
Total WIN WIN WIN in my book.
What are ya’lls favorite ways to exfoliate? Has anyone tried a coffee scrub for cellulite??
