Using leftover coffee grounds for cellulite is a genius way to naturally get rid of cellulite! Yes, those coffee grinds that you throw away every morning could be the answer to help with cellulite.
How Do Coffee Grounds Get Rid of Cellulite?
Though the used grounds have already been brewed, there’s still enough caffeine in them to wage war against fat and cellulite.
The caffeine makes the fat cells seem to shrink, by reducing inflammation via the caffeine.
It’s messy, but it does work!
How to Use Coffee Grounds for Cellulite
If you want to make a DIY coffee scrub for cellulite, it’s definitely easy!
Apply used coffee grounds to cellulite-ridden areas. You can just scoop them out of your coffee maker, once cooled, and apply directly to skin.
You can mix the coffee grinds with a carrier oil, such as sunflower oil or almond oil, if you’d like.
Leave the used coffee grounds sitting on your skin for a few minutes for the greatest effect.
While it works as a scrub, many people get even better results by wrapping the coffee ground-covered body parts with a tight wrap, such as an old towel, to keep the grounds on for an extended time (like the time it takes to wash your hair and face).
Or, you can make a coffee sugar scrub recipe with used coffee grounds, too. This DIY scrub recipe doesn’t contain as much coffee grinds, but it does have cocoa, sugar and oil for a decadent exfoliating scrub.
My coffee soap recipe also uses old coffee grounds for exfoliating benefits!
It is double duty for coffee grounds that would have ended up as trash.
Ways to Reuse Coffee Grounds
Even better, if you don’t wash the coffee grounds down the drain, you can recycle them into your garden soil to add acid to the soil.
Weird, but true! 🙂
Or, make this coffee smell air freshener. Used coffee grounds can be combined with food safe ingredients for a natural way to make your home smell like coffee cake!
