Well, if you thought it couldn’t get any simpler than my chia pudding/face mask, you were wrong. In fact, I wonder if this might be a bit of a stretch for the concept…you’re just making coffee and stirring.
I’m gonna count it, but please let me know if you think this is too much of a cop out!
There’s some unscientific internet search-based info that says “caffeine reduces cellulite!” and some more scientific info that says “…..umm…maybe!” But given that coffee grounds are usually a trash, or at best, compost byproduct, and GREAT for being a gritty, exfoliating rub, my verdict is: “it can’t’ hurt!”
So go ahead, brew yourself…
…a nice little cup of coffee with fresh-ground…grounds…
I enjoyed mine with a mini chocolate chip granola bar. Make no mistake, this is basically a cookie. A few tablespoons of oats a healthy treat does not make. And the first ingredient was sugar.
Then, use the grounds in the following recipe:
- 1/2 c fresh coffee grounds
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 6 Tbsp honey
- Drizzle of olive oil
Place all the ingredients in a bowl
And stir to mix:
Then, take yourself to the shower and start scrubbin’. My cellulite, like most women’s, is on my thighs, but I gotta draw the line somewhere to keep this site G-rated. It is coarse, and rough, your skin will turn pink, especially if you’re a pale white girl with hyper-sensitive skin, like me.
I definitely notice softer skin, though apparently you have to do this rather consistently to get any kind of significant cellulite reduction. Ah, well. I guess in the meantime I’ll keep knocking out squats to get thighs like these.
