I never previously contemplated rubbing coffee grounds all over my face...on purpose. However, I learned that coffee is renowned as an anti-cellulite agent. It works to detoxify and tighten the skin.

There are tons of facial scrubs available for purchase, but why not make this easy concoction at home?
1 Tbsp used coffee grinds
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp olive oil
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
slightly. In circular motions
starting with your feet and working your way up, gently exfoliate your whole body. The sugar and coffee grinds slough off dead skin

Try it out - it's actually very invigorating!
