One of my favorite beauty secrets is this homemade body scrub. I learned this years ago from one of my fabulous clients. She was a gorgeous girl and had a body TO-DIE-FOR! So naturally, always on a quest for unattainable perfection I simply had to ask her what she did to keep her body looking the way it did. Seriously, (I kid you not) she looked like someone drew her. Picture Jessica Rabbit.
Being an absolute doll on the inside too, she told me everything! Apart from eating healthy and working out she said that she religiously makes this scrub at least once a week and absolutely swears by it.
Now if you do your research you will discover that the main active ingredient in most of those expensive cellulite creams is CAFFEINE!!! So what you do is this….
Mix some olive oil, approximately 3/4 cup or so with maybe 1/2 cup of coffee. I use Espresso as pictured above. I feel like maybe it’s stronger than regular coffee. Couldn’t hurt right??
Measurements don’t have to be exact. You like it extra “scrubby” put more coffee. Less “scrubby” less coffee. Same with the olive oil. A little more or a little less it doesn’t really matter as long as you have enough for your whole body.
Take it with you in a non-breakable bowl or container into the shower. Save it for the last part of your bathing beauty routine as you will not wash it off. Once you have taken care of your beautiful hair and washed that gorgeous body you will then take your homemade scrub and rub it all over. Get in there and give it a really good scrub. Aside from the coffee helping firm your body the scrubbing action will exfoliate and the olive oil will nourish your skin.
Once you have exfoliated your entire bod rinse off but DO NOT wash again with soap!! The olive oil will leave a silky residue and delicious scent. Your skin will glow and feel lusciously supple.
Let me know when you try it!!! I love hearing from you.
