One of the most economic ways anyone can start a home treatment for cellulite removal is by using the used coffee grinds from your coffee maker machine. It is a fact that the actual cup of coffee you enjoyed, other than perhaps making you a little more alert, may not be doing your body much good due to its diuretic effect which dehydrates the skin cells. Drinking too many cups of coffee leads to poor circulation to the skin and can actually worsen your cellulite.
However, by applying the used coffee grinds externally to the skin, research has shown that the caffeine dilates blood vessels, increasing the blood flow, and helps to flush away the accumulated toxins and fat which are the culprits for the ugly lumps and bumps known as orange peel skin or cellulite.
As an effective weapon against poor circulation, caffeine is one of the principal ingredients in the best cellulite creams.
A home-made version is admittedly rather messy and perhaps not the easiest to use method of eliminating cellulite, but many people report excellent results.
Do not use decaffeinated coffee.
As used coffee grounds are susceptible to mould they should be stored in the refrigerator until ready for use. They are then gently warmed (not heated or burned) and well mixed with sufficient olive oil, coconut oil or almond oil, or certain astringent essential oils, or even a body lotion, to form a smooth paste. Wearing a loofah mitt, the paste is massaged by circular motion into the parts affected by cellulite. Wrap firmly but not tightly with plastic film. Then, wrap yourself in a blanket or take a sauna to keep warm and relax for 20-30 minutes. Finally, shower or rinse off with warm water.
One treatment with coffee grinds for cellulite removal should provide temporary results, but two or three regular treatments per week are necessary, together with a sensible diet, plenty of drinking water and more exercise, for a more lasting cellulite treatment
