Reducing Cellulite with Coffee! Yep it’s true, your favorite morning beverage can actually be used as a powerful beauty remedy! Coffee and its caffeine, when applied topically, has the ability to not only leave you with a glowing complexion, but also help reduce cellulite!

Here is what you need:

1. Freshly Roasted coffee
2. Honey

Here is what you do:

Take your fresh leftover coffee grounds and combine it with honey. This mixture can be then be used as a scrub on both the face and body. Just apply as you would a normal scrub, exfoliate and rinse when complete. This mixture is great an natural– and are things you can find in your very own kitchen!

Coffee grinds and honey are both loaded with tons of benefits: Honey is a natural anti-inflammatory and purifying agent. It both moisturizes and softens the skin, and in this case, it also functions to hold everything together. Coffee, too, does so many great things for the skin. When applied topically, the caffeine and antioxidants work to tighten and energize skin while also promoting circulation. This gives it the ability to smooth out skin and reduce that hated cellulite. It has also been known to reduce varicose veins as the result of its ability to shrink blood vessels.
