Do This With Coffee, Say Goodbye Cellulite !
Don’t throw out those coffee grounds you used to brew your morning cup—apply them directly to your thighs! An exfoliating scrub made from the grounds will make your skin smoother and target cellulite.
“Just as coffee acts as a mild diuretic when we drink it, the caffeine-rich grounds will draw water out of your fat cells, shrinking them so they’re less noticeable,” says Marta Wohrle of TruthInAging.com, a site that explores natural alternatives to commercial cosmetics. Once or twice a week, when you’re in the shower, try her scrub:
This treatment can be moderately effective. Try using fresh ground coffee to maximize the benefits, as it has more antioxidants and caffeine than used coffee grounds.
Try this coffee-grind cocktail: Mix 1/4 cup ground coffee with 3 tablespoons hot water and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes to absorb the water and form a paste. Then, mix in 2 tablespoons of olive oil to help bind the grinds. (This will make it easier to spread on, and offer extra moisturizing effects.)
Cleanse problem areas in a warm shower, then turn off the water and apply the scrub by massaging in a circular motion for 2-4 minutes with your hands or a washcloth. Rinse with warm water to remove all grounds, then pat dry and moisturize if desired.
The caffeine and antioxidants in coffee are moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term. As a stimulant, the caffeine in coffee dilates blood vessels, which temporarily tones and tightens tissue. Plus it increases circulation and reduces water retention, both of which may also help smooth the rumpled look of cellulite.
The antioxidants in coffee may help to release toxins, which is not only helpful for cellulite, but for healthy skin in general.Enjoy with the results and be proud of your body
