Cellulite seems to be the most universal problem every woman faces. Thin or fat, tall or short, nobody seems to be able to escape this modern day plague. There are many theories as to why cellulite appears, but most sources agree that it’s due to the imbalance in the connective tissue and fat in your body. However, yet again many factors might contribute to this imbalance, such as hormones, lifestyle, diet and genetics. Even though the overweight are at higher risk of cellulite, many thin women got it as well.
You may have tried many remedies, homemade and commercial, but we assure you that this homemade paste can do wonders for your skin. And the best part is you only need 2 ingredients.
Coffee scrub paste:
- ¼ cup of coffee grounds
- 3 tbsp. warm water
- 2 tbsp. olive or almond oil
Mix the coffee grounds with the water and leave it for about 10 minutes until the coffee absorbs the water and turns into a thick paste. Add in the olive or almond oil and mix it all well.
After you shower apply the paste on the affected area. Using circular motions, with your hands or with an exfoliating sponge massage the areas with cellulite for about 5-10 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and apply some lotion afterwards.
Repeat the procedure 2-3 times a week and you’ll achieve amazing results. You’ll start seeing the difference pretty soon.
Coffee massages are extremely beneficial in reducing cellulite. The massage and exfoliation stimulates the blood flow and the caffeine in the coffee has a tightening effect and eliminates the lose skin effect.
