How to get Bikini Body Ready (Part 2): Homemade Coffee Body Scrub

We previously posted Part 1 of our "How to Get Bikini Body Ready" series, with a review of Genie Juicery for a cold pressed juice detox in Hong Kong.

This week's post focuses on how to iron out some of your lady lumps and bumps with a homemade coffee and coconut oil scrub. 

Now, we're not saying that this scrub guarantees you a cellulite-free toosh over Summer, but we have heard that caffeine helps tighten the skin when applied topically - and the smell of fresh coffee, combined with organic coconut oil is enough reason for us to give this a go!

Don't worry though - we get it if you're as sceptical as we were - but this scrub doesn't just claim to help with cellulite, it also acts as an exfoliant to slough away your dead skin (and trust us, we all have some!) and a moisturiser in one.

So, here's the super simple recipe that we're absolutely loving this Summer. Let us know whether it works for you in the comments section below!


Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup of coffee grind (I use Vietnamese coffee grind, which smells amazingly nutty)
  2. 1/2 cup of organic virgin coconut oil (less if you don't want to be too sticky)
  3. 1/4 cup of sea salt
  4. 1 mason jar or sturdy container

Steps:

Melt the coconut oil if need be by putting it in the microwave briefly. Mix all the ingredients together in a mason jar or sturdy container. In the shower or bathtub, apply the scrub onto your skin in small, circular motions. Allow to sit on your skin for about two minutes.

Even if you don't notice the telltale cottage-cheese marks disappearing from your thighs, you are bound to feel (and smell) silky smooth for a day or two after applying this scrub!
