Easy Coffee Body Scrub: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Easy Coffee Body Scrub: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We all love coffee and summer, so why not use coffee to rejuvenate your body and help combat the cellulite that even supermodels have.

The number one enemy of cellulite is caffeine, who knew? Caffeine tightens and provides antioxidants to the skin so even if you used common coffee grounds you'd see results, especially over time when this scrub is massaged into the affected area. Now add in the coffee grounds left over from your daily VitaCup brew, we used Genius Blend because it also has MCT, and you get a fantastic combo.

In this recipe, we combined our Genius Blend coffee grounds with moisturizing coconut oil and a bit of sea salt; you could also use sugar, to get a little more exfoliation. Daily massaging this scrub onto any problem area, you'll stimulate blood flow resulting in softer, firmer skin.

Ingredients

  • 1 c Genius Blend grounds
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp sea salt or sugar
  • 1 airtight empty jar
