New You Beauty Tip: Use coffee to make cellulite less noticeable.

Cellulite is a taboo subject for discussion among women yet remains a major cause for concern. Creams and procedures can get pricey and sometimes working out doesn’t completely solve the problem. Surprisingly, a familiar household staple may be your answer. Coffee is full of caffeine and antioxidants which can help lessen the appearance of cellulite. Caffeine can help increase circulation and reduce water retention in your fat cells ultimately smoothing out the problem area. The antioxidants in caffeine help to release toxins from the area it is applied to which is helpful for cellulite. Try this DIY scrub for an at home cellulite remedy:

Mix ¼ cup of coffee grinds with 2 tablespoons of hot water and let sit for 10 minutes while the grinds absorb the water and turn into paste. Then mix in 2 tablespoons of olive oil so that the grinds will stick together. Rinse off the mixture using a cloth with warm water by massaging in a circular motion for five minutes.  It is recommended to do this in the shower as it can get messy.
