Days Closer to a Cuter You! Day 5

Coffee & Brown Sugar Scrub for Cellulite (as seen on Dr. Oz)

Olive oil, coffee grounds, brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coffee grounds
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • olive oil 
Do this in the shower. First smooth a nickel sized drop of olive oil on your areas of cellulite. Then scoop out some of the mix of coffee grounds and brown sugar and massage in a circular motion over your areas of concern. This has a temporary effect but you can do it a couple times a week. I didn't use the full amount so I'll save the rest for the next time.

This scrub feels and smells so good I used it as an all over body scrub. And as a morning coffee drinker, I started craving breakfast! I'll have an omelet and a side of bacon.
