It's time to prepare our bodies to be exposed to sunlight and there is no better way to do that than with a good exfoliation. Get rid of that dead, dry winter skin and start anew. Tempting as it may be to reach for some sandpaper, it's more enjoyable - and just as effective - to use a body scrub. Inspiration came from these great scrubs from chickrx.com.
Looks almost good enough to eat! Then I got to reading about how much the caffeine in coffee helps reduce the appearance of cellulite AND supposedly inhibits hair growth. That did it; I knew a coffee scrub was for me.
Here's what you need:
1/4 cup of your favorite coffee ground
1/4 cup of organic sugar
1/4 cup of almond oil (vegetable oil and olive oil work as well)
In a bowl combine the coffee and sugar
Mix in the oil until you have a consistency you like
Place in an airtight container
Use the mixture in a hot, steamy shower; a little goes a long way. This smells heavenly, and feels even better. The jury is still out on whether or not it helps reduce hair growth, but it does give your skin a nice healthy glow.
