Hey folks we’ve got a super easy quick recipe for you to try out!
While cellulite is a tricky thing to combat, this coffee scrub could possibly help it out! A quick general reason as to why women get cellulite is because of a layer of tissue under the skin that is web-like. While a google search on the internet will give you a plethora of possible reasons; genetics, fat deposits, weak connective tissue, and more, they all seem to link back to this webbing that lies under our skin. For women, this webbing runs up and down our legs. Men have tissue that runs diagonally, this is just one reason why they are less likely to display cellulite.
Below the recipe, I’ve broken down each ingredient and its purpose in this scrub and why it can help you tone your skin!
1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Chunks of cinnamon sticks (optional)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract or essential oil
Mix Dry ingredients together in mixing bowl. Then slowly stir in wet ingredients.
Directions for use:
Wet skin, if using in the shower, turn the shower off once completely wet. Next, scrub desired areas for 5 minutes. After let sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the ingredients to activate on the body. Then Rinse and enjoy your beautiful skin!
Coffee is super rich in antioxidants, creating an awesome anti-inflammatory aspect to the scrub. The caffeine in coffee can temporally reduce the appearance of cellulite and make the skin firm. It is also a great exfoliator for removing dead skin sells making the skin super soft!
Coconut palm sugar acts as deeper exfoliator which can really help with circulation.
Cinnamon is a powerful anti-fungal that clears your skin of any bacteria. It’s also known to treat acne, dry skin, eczema. It also brings blood to the surface of the skin, which can alleviate lines and increase blood circulation.

Vanilla extract gives this scrub a nice smell, but besides that, is has a ton of benefits for your skin. It’s has antibacterial effects that treat acne and pimples. It is rich in antioxidants which prevents and repairs damage done to the skin by free radicals. It has anti-aging properties that can reduce wrinkles and sun spots.
