Like most women I struggle with little bouts of cellulite. I’ve had two children and sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard you try to prevent it, it will inevitably appear just before bikini season. This is what I use from my kitchen to get ready for summer.
- 1 Cup Brewed Coffee Grounds
- 1/4 Cup Sea Salt
- Enough Olive Oil to make a dry paste
- Stir together the Coffee Grounds and Sea Salt until they are well mixed
- Add the olive oil and stir into a dry paste
- Best stored in a dark container
Now here is how to use it. While in the shower and after you have already washed the area, scrub this mixture into the skin for a couple of minutes and then let it sit on your legs with the water off. After 10 minutes or so simply rinse the mixture off with warm water, pat dry and apply your moisturizer.
Here is how it works, the coffee grounds will stimulate a surface blood flow to the affected area, this will enable the fatty deposits to circulate and over time diminish. The Sea Salt acts as an exfoliator and aids in the blood flow stimulation during the scrub. Finally the Olive Oil is the binding agent for these two dry ingredients and will naturally hydrate the skin.
I hope you enjoy this delightful scrub. Let me know how it works for you. Subscribe in the box to the left to see more recipes like this.
