Coffee grounds for cellulite is not a new idea. It has been used for many years by many people and provided varying results. If you’re a coffee lover then you might be aware of all the ways you can put your coffee grounds to good use. However, are you aware that people scrub grounds on their skin to reduce cellulite? Coffee grounds can help reduce the looks for a limited time.
When you scrub the grounds on your skin, the caffeine induces dilation while the rubbing motion heightens circulation. Both motions help the cellulite disappear. The massaging motion helps stretch the skin and improve the appearance of cellulite on the body.
Coffee has antioxidants that help promote an overall healthy skin tone. Furthermore, the coffee ground for cellulite scrub also has exfoliating benefits for users. When applied and rubbed on the skin, it exfoliates dead skin cells. This gives the skin an even and smooth look and feel. Which significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite.
- Fresh coffee grounds
- Hot water
- Coconut/olive oil (optional)
Preparation and Application
The best way to mix the ingredients is in a glass bowl to avoid staining. Mix the coffee grounds in the bowl with hot water until you achieve the desired paste consistency. Feel free to add either of the items until you get the consistency you feel comfortable applying to your skin.
If you have dry skin, you may add a few drops of coconut or olive oil. This step is completely optional.
To apply the mixture directly to clean skin. Massage the paste on your skin using your fingertips. Some people also use a dry cloth or brush to spread the paste on their skin. Massage for a few minutes and then rinse the paste off.
For best results use fresh coffee grounds, not the ones that have already been used to make coffee. If you use spent ones, you’re likely to miss all the benefits of caffeine. In the same vein don’t use decaf for the same reason.
Repeat the process several times every week. You can use the paste while taking a shower to make it easier to apply and clean off.
This is often an excellent trick to use if you’re hoping to spend some time on the beach or in the pool. Not only does the coffee scrub smell great but it’s also relaxing.
