Who knew that putting a little sugar in your coffee could make an excellent energizing body scrub? Coffee is rich in antioxidants which can increase collagen production and the sugar will gently exfoliate your body by sloughing away dead skin cells. The coconut oil which fits all skin types, is deeply moisturizing to the skin and is loaded with protective antioxidants. As a bonus, caffeine applied topically with a good scrubbing has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin by stimulating blood flow.
Mix 1 cup organic ground coffee with 1 cup organic cane sugar (or brown sugar) until it gets fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add 1/2 cup organic solid coconut oil and continue to whip for another minute or two. Done!
Keep the scrub in an airtight container in a cool place.
To use, just wet your skin, apply in circular motions and rinse!
Massage a little longer for cellulite appearance reduction.
You will feel energized, smelling delicious and your skin will reward you by a smooth and tender appearance.
Tips: To reduce the appearance of cellulite, apply religiously everyday.
For exfoliating, it can be used everyday or once a week depending on the sensitivity of your skin.
