I like the idea of whipping up an at home spa treatment with ingredients found in my kitchen cupboard. Recently, I came across not one, but two coffee scrubs and I thought I should tell you about them.
The first one, from Spa Index is an exfoliation scrub. All you need is:
Here's what you do:
Mix all ingredients together. Apply in hot shower after your skin is evenly moistened and your pores are open. Using wide, circular motions, rub the coffee mixture onto your skin with strong, even pressure. Rinse off, pat skin dry, and apply a thin layer of your favorite body lotion.
The second coffee rub, from Care2 claims to be a cellulite buster. I have seen many spas offering coffee cellulite treatments, and I don't believe anything like scrubbing your bum with coffee will get rid of the dimples. Cellulite occurs in 50 - 90 % of women regardless of their age or clothing size. But this scrub is an interesting variation on the coffee theme so I am sharing it with you.

Scrub away dry dead skin while cleansing at the same time using sugar body polish. It's gentler on your skin than salt scrubs.
After scrubbing in the shower, you can step out and seal in the moisture with silk - Body Silk that is. It's a cross between a lotion and an oil, and leaves your skin lusciously nourished.
They're all made with pure and natural ingredients in small batches by hand. Lunaroma offers all-natural alternatives to the leading chemical based body care products. So once you go natural, you'll never go back.
