I've ran into this beauty hack while researching holistic remedies to the women's biggest enemy: CELLULITE! And what I've found out is coffee does so much more than reduce years of collected cellulite.
Coffee is naturally a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. and caffeine draws out excess moisture from your skin, causing it to look and feel smoother and firmer. In this scrub, coffee acts as a mild exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and exposing fresh, soft skin.
While coconut oil is moisturizing and filled with vitamins and minerals
You can also add a dash of organic ceylon cinnamon to the mix which helps to clear your skin of any bacteria. It also brings blood to the surface of the skin, helping to smooth out any lines.
So the super simple recipe is:
- 2 parts ground coffee
- 1 part coconut oil (room temperature - you want it to be SOFT, not solid & not liquid)
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Mix everything well in a glass mason jar and keep it in your shower for a daily spa-like experience
