Coffee Scrub

This is a slight deviation from cooking, but it uses the same ingredients as most of my recipes! I tired this last night and it smelled like coffee brownie mix I love it! My skin looks awesome after using this scrub!  Make sure you use finely ground coffee or it may be too rough. I LOVE coconut oil, Its great for dry skin and dry hair, put some in your hair and leave it in for an hour, I started doing this once a week and my hair has never been healthier!

Most pricey cellulite treatments use caffeine to promote circulation, deep-cleanse pores and act as a diuretic by removing excess water from your dermis. This version uses the same simulators — but with ingredients usually reserved for your morning cup of coffee! Like the store-bought potions, this isn’t a scientifically vetted treatment. But the stimulating massage does help soften skin and could help smooth out fatty areas.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup finely ground coffee
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 2 Tbs olive oil

Directions:

  1.  Mix all the ingredients. Massage into thighs, butt and other fatty areas for five minutes in a circular motion.
  2. Rinse when finished.
  3. Repeat three to five times per week.
