Fair Friday Coffee Scrub

Today's scrub is easy to make with things you have right in your kitchen.
It takes just a few ingredients. The scrub is a bit messy to use. When I tried iout I took the scrub to the gym where I swim.  The scrub was all over the walls, but I was able to wash it all down. So might not want to do this one at home.

Coffee Body Scrub

1 cup fresh ground coffee
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup  Kosher salt
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon olive oil

Mix together all of the ingredients.

After a bath or shower, rub the body scrub using circular motions over areas prone to cellulite such as thighs, hips and stomach.   Rinse off with water, towel dry and then moisturize.
Do not use a salt scrub if your skin is broken, have sunburn or other skin irritations. Do not use before sun exposure since the orange oil can cause sunburn.

Salt scrubs detoxify the body. Stimulate circulation and help to fight cellulite.  They remove dead skin from the body to leave soft smooth skin.  Exfoliate once per week.  Doing this before skin treatments can make them more effective because it opens up the pores.
