As we all know coffee contains caffeine, a powerful stimulant. Caffeine is actually found in virtually every single cellulite-reducing lotion on the market, so what does caffeine do to target cellulite?
A 2013 study showed that caffeine easily penetrates the skin barrier and prevents excessive accumulation of fat in cells. It also has potent antioxidant properties and slows down the process of photoageing of the skin. It increases circulation of blood in the skin and even stimulates hairgrowth.
You can easily make yourself a DIY Coffee Body Scrub at home using fresh coffee grounds. Don’t add in used coffee grounds as most of the caffeine will have already leached out of those and all of your anti-cellulite goodness will be percolating in your coffee maker instead!
