It’s that time of the year again, the time when itty bitty bikinis dominate the fashion pages and your gorgeous bod take centre stage. However, if you’re feeling a little less than fabulous this season, make sure you try this cellulitebusting coffee coconut scrub to get your skin super soft and summer ready
What you will need:
1/4 Cup coffee grounds
1/2 – 1 Cup coconut oil (again try for organic to get maximum benefits)
Melt the coconut oil and stir into the coffee grounds. You can refrigerate the mixture, or you can just wait for it to return to room temperature to set. Apply the scrub before you get into the bath or shower by using small, circular movements in the direction of your heart to boost circulation. Focus on areas that need toning a little more, like the bum, tum and thighs.
The caffeine in the coffee grounds helps increase circulation and reduce water retention, which helps reduce the appearance of cellulite. The antioxidants work to rid your skin of toxins which contribute to cellulite. Coconut oil is a fantastic moisturiser, and can help your skin retain moisture, which also helps the skin look smoother.
