DIY: Anti-cellulite scrub

November 18, 2011 4 Comments

Anti-cellulite coffee scrub


Topical caffeine has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite. If you suffer from cellulite or simply want to prevent it, make your own scrub, instead of spending money on creams and treatments (that don’t always work).  The coffee scrub is very easy to make, it’s effective and quite inexpensive!

Ingredients:
  • Coffee
  • Sugar or sea salt
  • Rosemary essential oil
  • Olive oil

You will need coffee grounds, freshly ground coffee beans or instant coffee. Coffee reduces the appearance of cellulite,  rosemary is well known for its cell regenerating properties, both sugar and sea salt are great exfoliants, and olive oil is an excellent moisturiser.

 

Method:
  • Mix 12 drops of rosemary essential oil with 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Mix 1 part sugar or sea salt with 3 parts coffee.
  • Blend the oil with the coffee and sugar/salt mixture to make a paste.
  • Store in the refrigerator until use. 

How to use:
  • Vigorously rub your anti-cellulite scrub onto troubled areas; you can use gloves if you want to.
  • After rubbing all cellulite-prone areas, rinse off the scrub.
  •  Use twice a week for best results.

This homemade scrub is very effective; the only downside is the smell (especially if like me, you don’t like coffee!).  But nonetheless, it's worth a try.
