Hey everyone =)

I think I have made the best bodyscrub ever! It helps fight cellulite, tightens your skin, moisturizes, and gives you a sun kissed glow! The great thing is, it’s super easy to make and you only need 2 ingredients.

The ingredients are ground coffee (Filter coffee) and olive-oil.

The coffee helps fight cellulite and tightens your body, because the caffeine in the coffee dilates blood vessels, and . Another thing is that caffeine reduces water retention, which again helps smooth away the cellulite. Coffee also contains antioxidants which helps release toxins, and just gives you great and healthy skin.

If you mix it with olive oil, you’ll get the perfect sun-kissed glow, because both of them help give you a tanned-tint. Plus olive oil also moisturizes your skin, so in all in all you get rid of the ashy winter skin that haven’t seen the sun in a few months.

I’m a big coffee drinker, so I just took out my coffee filter with the coffee in it, after I made coffee this morning; hence the ugly looking coffee filter in the picture. But you could of course use fresh ground coffee, if you prefer that. Some even say that you’ll get more effect if the coffee is fresh, because then it hasn’t lost any of it’s caffeine or antioxidants.

I used a glass jar to mix it, first added the coffee and then covered it with olive oil. I added a little more olive oil than I need, probably because I got too excited.. But you only add as much as you like. I really think it’s preference thing to be honest.

I used it while I was showering, after I had finished washing my hair and face, it was basically  the last thing I did in the shower. Scrubbed my body for about 4 minutes and then rinsed with water, and padded myself dry with a towel.
