What?! Yep, you read that right.

Scrubbing the skin with coffee grounds can actually help to improve circulation and dilate the skin, so the appearance of cellulite is less noticeable. Coffee itself also contains antioxidants that help to increase collagen production. In addition, coffee grounds can help to exfoliate the skin to help slough off dead skin cells and make skin look radiant and smooth.

So here’s the thing – coffee ground alone here and there won’t get rid of cellulite. Regular dry skin brushing (learn more about the 7 benefits of dry skin brushing and a tutorial on how to do it) at least once a day, plus this DIY Coffee Body Scrub in the shower with a body brush once a day will help you get the most improvement in the appearance of cellulite on the skin.
