Coffee Scrub for cellulite, is this a thing? Find out below!
Cellulite refers to the often dimpled or ‘orange peel’ appearance of skin which occurs when the fatty tissue under the skin pushes against the skin closer to the surface. It commonly develops on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms, and while not a medical concern, cellulite has unfortunately been labeled as a flaw or a body imperfection. Several factors can contribute to cellulite including gender, hormones, genetics, and lifestyle, and contrary to popular belief, cellulite can appear regardless of your weight. Cellulite is a normal and natural occurrence, so why not treat it with a natural scrub?
Coffee body scrubs have been known to reduce the appearance of cellulite; let’s dive in and see if it lives up to its hype!
So…Do Coffee Body Scrubs Help?
Coffee body scrubs can help the appearance of cellulite in many ways:
The physical action of buffing away dull, dry, dead skin cells can assist with the appearance of cellulite. Exfoliating stimulates skin cell regeneration revealing a smoother and toned complexion.
Coffee is loaded with the stimulant caffeine. It can assist by dilating the blood vessels in the skin, encouraging blood circulation, and removing excess water which in turn can have a tightening effect on the skin reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Coffee is rich in antioxidants which will assist with the skin’s overall health and tone. Coffee is especially rich in polyphenols which can assist with fighting free radical damage and encourage collagen production. This protection from cellular damage can in turn help reduce the effects of ageing.
Using a physical exfoliant such as a natural coffee scrub can assist with blood flow. The massaging motion can also encourage lymphatic drainage helping to release any toxin build up or impurities, which can in turn help reduce the appearance of cellulite by plumping up the skin.
