I’m a woman and YES, I have cellulite. I have used a few different things but nothing seems to work better than Coffee Grounds. So I concocted this very simple but very effective DIY coffee scrub recipe for Cellulite Reduction.
USING COFFEE SCRUB
This homemade body scrub exfoliates the skin, helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, and moisturizes the skin with olive oil. Never mix with used coffee grounds from your coffee-maker — these have already been damaged. To gain the potential benefits of the caffeine, you also want to be sure you select traditional coffee, not decaf.
DIY COFFEE SCRUB RECIPE

I am a bit of a coffee addict, so naturally, this coffee sugar scrub is one of my favorites that we have made so far!
HOW COFFEE WORKS TO REDUCE CELLULITE
Why Coffee? The caffeine in coffee grounds has potent antioxidant properties that can help protect the skin from sun damage, reduce cellulite, and stimulate the blood vessels.
Coffee does an amazing job at exfoliation which makes it a natural choice for body scrubs, but outside of its ability to slough off dead skin cells what can coffee do?
Now we all know caffeine is coffee’s secret weapon when it comes to waking us up in the morning, but caffeine is also a secret weapon for your skin.
Caffeine helps tighten the skin, which can help reduce cellulite. Caffeine is also loaded with antioxidants, which help battle dark spots, fine lines, swelling, and inflammation.
There are so many reasons to love coffee. Personally, I love it when I’m drinking it 3-4 times per day (judgment-free zone, okay?)
Exfoliating your skin with body scrub has many benefits. Not only does exfoliating make your skin look more lively and rejuvenated, it removes those dead skin cells that clog your pores.

HOW TO MAKE COFFEE BODY SCRUB
Exfoliating coffee body scrub made with organic coffee, sugar, and olive oil.
Body scrubs are a great product to help your skin feeling moisturized and nourished. You can spend $12 to $25 for a quality scrub or just a few dollars making it home with organic ingredients.
When making body scrubs you can choose from sugar, salt, oats, grains, and coffee for the base. They all exfoliate and offer different properties for the skin.
Homemade scrubs are a great way to soothe and heal hard-working hands. Maybe you don’t garden, but as a busy mom, I bet there are other things you’re doing that take a toll on your skin. This scrub is an excellent way to help your hands and pamper yourself a bit. It’s so relaxing to use, and you won’t believe how soft and smooth your skin feels after using it.
After massaging for a few minutes, rinse clean. Ideally, you want to complete this process in the shower to prevent messes and stains from the coffee grounds. Massage the scrub onto the skin in a circular motion before rinsing. Repeat every time you shower for the best results.
