Cellulite treatment! How to get rid of cellulite on legs, bum, stomach, butt and thighs? In this article, you will learn how to get rid of cellulite with coffee scrub. What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a term for the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin. Common names for cellulite are orange-peel skin, cottage-cheese skin, hail damage, and the mattress phenomenon.
Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. Between 80 and 90 percent of women may experience cellulite at some point in their lives.
The caffeine and antioxidants in coffee are moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term.
Some women don’t wear shorts or bikini because of cellulite. It is a hormonal change and a build-up of toxins and chemicals in the body, particularly in the fat cells, are the two most common causes of this condition.
Coffee scrubs can be beneficial in reducing cellulite as well. The massage and exfoliation benefits skin by stimulating blood/lymph flow and the caffeine in the coffee has a tightening effect.
Here is how to get rid of cellulite with coffee scrub:
- 1/4 cup of coffee grounds
- 3 tablespoons of sugar or brown sugar
- 2-3 Tablespoons of melted coconut oil
Combine the ingredients to create a paste-like consistency (note that it will harden if cooled if you are using unrefined coconut oil). Store in a glass jar.
Massage into skin for several minutes using firm pressure and wash as usual. Use 2-3 times a week. Results should be visible within a couple of weeks.
