I came across with this body scrub, it has only four simple ingredients, which I already had in my kitchen, although I'm not a coffee drinker :).
This scrub can help you eliminate cellulite, I've read that coffee scrubs are good for that ... and because coffee is dark, it can help you maintain your tan. I'm super white (well my legs are super duper white :D), it didn't do much for me :D.
Here is the recipe:
- 2 tablespoon of organic sugar
- 1 tablespoon of finely ground coffee
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice (any other citrus will do, too)
- pinch of Himalayan salt (you can use sea salt)
Mix all the ingredients together and your mixture is ready to use :). I applied it on wet skin under the shower. Afterwards I used self tanner on my legs (exfoliation is key for smooth fake tan) and moisturising cream on my other body areas.
Nothing smells better than coffee :)
You can add essential oils if you would like to change the smell of it, but I got a terrible allergy once because of it, and I prefer simplicity :).
Tell me how it turned out if you tried it. What kind of body scrubs/peelings do you use?
P.S.: Thank you for lovely comments on my last blog post "The penguin challenge look 1: Drag queen". You just made my whole year ;). Love you all <3
