Reduces Cellulite Appearance (DIY Coffee Body scrub)

As I shared in my last blog the benefits of coffee are more than just our favorite wake up boost. Today I share how coffee can help reduce the appearance of cellulite by plumping up your skin. If you check the labels, caffeine is in many of those very expensive cellulite creams ( so why pay more when you can do it yourself at home?). Here's an easy DIY Coffee body scrub that will not leave a dent in your monthly beauty budget :)

What you'll need:

1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp sea salt

Mix the ground coffee with the brown sugar and sea salt. Add the olive oil mix well. Quick and easy coffee body scrub DONE!
