If you thought coffee was reserved solely for helping you get out of bed in the morning and putting an extra spring in your step, think again. In fact, when it comes to natural body-care remedies, coffee is the key, especially if you’re looking to get rid of cellulite.

This formation of dimples along the skin, also known as “orange-peel skin”, is a beauty bane that affects nearly 90 percent of women. Caused by fat cells pushing up against connective tissue in the skin, leaving it looking lumpy and bumpy, cellulite is practically impossible to get rid of completely. But it’s not all bad news.

Cellulite’s number one enemy is coffee, because it helps to stimulate dilation in the skin and tightens and tones, especially when combined with scrubbing. This helps rid your body of dry and dead skin cells and evens out skin tone. Coffee also has the added bonus of being full of antioxidants and a natural anti-inflammatory. It happens to have the same pH level as your skin, so it won’t affect the production of natural oils, meaning you won’t feel dry or oily after using it.

So before you run for the hills the next time someone says the words “pool party”, read on to discover a simple DIY coffee scrub recipe that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and lead to smoother, softer, and more aromatic skin – just in time to celebrate International Coffee Day on October 1st.
