In a post from last March about coconut oil, we recently received this creative idea for a homemade anti cellulite cream from a fellow cellulite investigator (thanks, Laurie!):
I have another idea for coconut oil…
You know how they talk about caffeine being good for reducing cellulite (when applied topically)? It seems to be the main ingredient in anti-cellulite creams, and even those special cellulite pants contain it. I’ve tried scrubbing with coffee grounds in the shower, but it is kind of messy business.
So instead, I’ve made my own ‘lotion.’ I gently heated some coconut oil in a saucepan and added a few tablespoons of fresh, unused coffee grinds. I let that steep a little, then strained it through a fine mesh strainer (a few grinds managed to get through anyway, but I didn’t worry about it. I suppose you could use some cheesecloth to get it all out) and poured it into a container. I put that in the fridge to ‘set’. The result is a very yummy smelling lotion that I put on after my shower (and dry skin brushing of course).
I’ve just started using it, so I can’t say that I’ve seen results yet, but thought it might be a good idea to share with others.
Fingers crossed it works! I’ll keep you posted
You could add some essential oils as well to help things along…
What do you think? Is it worth a try?
Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
