Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite with Indie Lee’s Coffee-Themed Recipe
Caffeine first dehydrates the fat cells, and the grinds gently slough away dead skin cells.
While it’s impossible to remove cellulite completely, there are things we can do to reduce its appearance. Local organic skin care guru Indie Lee shares one of her at-home recipes for an all-natural scrub containing her favorite ingredient: coffee. The caffeine works to dehydrate fat cells and when broken down, acts as a natural exfoliant.
What You Need:
½ ounce of sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons coffee grinds (espresso roast)
5 tablespoons coconut oil
¾ cup of arrowroot powder (natural alternative to talc powder)
- Combine coffee grinds and sweet almond oil in a large bowl and mix.
- Add coconut oil and mix well.
- Fold in the arrowroot powder and mix until all the coconut clumps are gone.
Indie Tip: Keep the mixture refrigerated for a day to make it easier to scoop out, like butter.
