Why it Works:
Coffee grounds slough away dead skin cells, detoxifies the skin, and smooths out the appearance of cellulite. Coconut oil works deep into the skin to heal and moisturize, while cinnamon repairs damaged skin cells and adds a relaxing scent. The white or brown sugar works together with the coffee grounds to deeply exfoliate. All of these ingredients, combined with the massage, smooth out the cellulite and reveal beautiful, soft, cellulite-free skin.
