If you’re a cof­fee lover, the idea of us­ing pre­cious cof­fee beans in a body scrub might shock you, but give this DIY prod­uct a shot—you’ll be glad you did! Cof­fee scrubs aren’t just for ex­fo­li­a­tion and boost­ing cir­cu­la­tion. The caf­feine in the beans can also plump and tighten your skin, help­ing re­duce the ap­pear­ance of cel­lulite. Plus, the co­conut oil will leave your skin silky smooth.

Cof­fee Body Scrub

Mix to­gether 1/2 cup fresh ground cof­fee and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Pour 1/2 cup melted co­conut oil into the cof­fee mix­ture, then add 1 tsp. vanilla ex­tract. Mix un­til well com­bined. Makes 4 ap­pli­ca­tions.

To use, gen­tly rub the mix­ture over your body. Leave it on for a few min­utes, then rinse thor­oughly. (Be care­ful if us­ing the scrub in the shower, as the oil can make the floor a bit slip­pery.)
