This food, in fact, has draining properties and, together with the salt and oil used in the recipe, makes the skin soft and elastic.
Let’s see how to prepare the coffee body scrub and use it in the shower !
Coffee anti-cellulite scrub: grandma’s recipe
The ingredients of the coffee body scrub are cheap and easy to find . All you need is:
• 6 tablespoons of ground coffee (or coffee grounds),
• 6 tablespoons of sea salt (or brown sugar, if you have delicate skin),
• 12 tablespoons of olive oil (or 6 tablespoons of olive oil and 6 of almond oil).
To prepare the exfoliator, you just have to mix all the ingredients in a clean plastic jar, until you get a homogeneous cream. At this point, if you have used ground coffee, you can keep it in a cool, dry place until it is finished. If, on the other hand, you have used coffee grounds, you must consume it within a couple of days, because the water contained in the grounds could make it rancid.
How to do the body scrub
Coffee exfoliator should be used regularly to combat cellulite, at least a few times a week. Apply it on wet skin in the shower, after washing it with your usual cleanser .
Try to take the scrub with dry hands, or using a teaspoon, to prevent water from getting into the jar.
Then apply the product on the skin and massage it in circular movements from the ankles to the buttocks. Let the coffee work for a few minutes , then rinse thoroughly . You will see that you will not need body cream, because the oil will leave the skin very soft.
