DIY: BEACH BABE BODY SCRUB


So there are some products out there that claim to be great for stretch-marks and cellulite, but have you noticed any trends? Most are coffee based. This is because coffee is thought to diminish the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks by causing temporary increase in the size of blood vessels, and increased circulation. Caffeine, the same ingredient in your morning pick-me-up is thought to cause these temporary wonders. 

I whipped together a 3 ingredient concoction from super easy-to-find products to make a skin-silkening scrub that is all natural and likely edible ( I don't recommend eating this)

The recipe(roughly)
1 cup of coffee grounds (any organic brand)
1 cup of coconut oil (I use Trader Joes brand)
4 tablespoons of organic honey
 (because honey makes everything better)

How To Use: 
After you've exfoliated your skin with an exfoliating glove or washed off with your usual soap, shut off the water and rub a handful of this magic scrub all over your body. Take the time to scrub and  let is sit for a few minutes to soak into your skin. Post-shower your skin will be silky from the coconut oil residue and will smell like a cappuccino. 

I use this scrub a few times a week especially when my skin is dried out from back to back beach days! Hope you love the scrub
