coffee-scrub-female-thigh

You are here for the sole purpose of learning how to get rid of cellulite without spending the big bucks to medically remove it. We don’t blame you. In fact, we are here to provide you with an affordable DIY scrub that is aromatic, exfoliating, and an excellent option for getting rid of unwanted bumps and ripples. Before we can give you the recipe, we have to hit you with some good news and bad news.

 

The Bad News:

It’s always better to start with the bad and finish on a more positive note. Cellulite is caused by subcutaneous fat that bulges into the connective-tissue layer of the skin (the dermal layer). It can also be a result of poor blood flow, reducing collagen production and inhibiting proper lymphatic drainage. The bad news is that coffee grounds cannot make cellulite disappear forever. The fibrous bands of cellulite need to be severed in order for it to completely go away.

 

The Good News:

The act of scrubbing coffee grounds on your skin works to reduce the appearance of cellulite. You have to continue this process on a weekly basis to increase circulation, which helps to decrease the lumpy appearance. Many dermatologists agree that coffee grounds possess excellent antioxidants that stimulate collage production. If you want to expose your thighs for a week (about as long as the effects of scrubbing last), massage a coffee scrub into your skin.

 

Many reports claim that roughly 80-90 percent of all women are affected by cellulite. It’s quite common and genetics, gender, diet, and level of activity all play a role in cellulite development. Many home remedies exist for getting rid of cellulite, the most common of which include dry-brushing (increasing lymphatic drainage), a balanced diet and exercise, and massaging coffee scrubs on the affected areas. Find out how to make and use the coffee scrub below.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coffee grounds
  • ½ cup organic virgin coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup coarse sugar (turbinado sugar is a great option)
  • 4-8 drops cinnamon essential oil (use less if your skin is sensitive)
  • 8 drops vanilla essential oil

Instructions:

  • Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and mix well to combine. Transfer the mixture to a glass, airtight container.
  • Store the scrub in the refrigerator for up to one year.

How To Use:

  • After rinsing off your body in the shower, massage the coffee scrub onto cellulite areas, for example, the thighs and buttocks. Make sure to apply firm pressure, but don’t rub too vigorously because you don’t want to break skin.
  • Rinse the scrub off and pat dry once you step out of the shower.
  • Finish your routine with a high-quality moisturizer. Click here for an excellent DIY recipe.

 

How It Works:

  • Coffee grounds help to exfoliate the skin, which dilates blood vessels and helps to tighten the skin.
  • Cinnamon oil also works to dilate blood vessels. This process helps to plump up the skin and decrease the appearance of cellulite.
  • Sugar helps to exfoliate the skin, while coconut oil provides moisturizing properties to avoid abrasions or rough skin.

    Q: I have a question for you. Do you have or recommend an herbal cellulite cream that can be used as a body wraps to lose inches? There are so many products on the market and no one knows if they truly work or not. Is there an herbal body cream that I could use to shrink the fat cells in my stomach area? I have done a body detox and have been dieting for the past year. Hope you can help me to find the perfect herbal body cream that will help me.

    A:

    Cellulite doesn't come from a crème so it can't be healed with a crème. Cellulite is the result of diet and lifestyle so you have to make the necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle. Period! You're dealing with the Law of Cause and Effect here. The cause of cellulite is poor eating and lifestyle habits and the effect of poor dieting and lifestyle is disease, i.e. cellulite. I suggest you keep on detoxing! These wraps only work minimally, but it's cutting corners because even after having them performed you are still toxic inside - a walking time bomb!

    Q: I am listening to you on Rainbow soul talking about cellulite and stretch marks and it sounds as if you have just given up on the black female race like there is no help for big women.

    A:

    Dherbs.com: I haven't given up on big Black women at all. The fact is that most big Black women BLACK discipline and will not do what is necessary. The simple fact that they blew up in the first place says a lot (i.e. poor self-esteem, low self-image, unhappiness, undisciplined, etc.)

    That is another story though cause I'm not big AT ALL!! but I am a black female.

    Dherbs.com: I'm writing an article soon on Black women and obesity: causes/origins, dangers, and solutions. Now does this sound like I have given up????

    ANYWAY - my question to you is - Since January 8, 2007 I stopped eating meat and I saw a tremendous result in my complaint areas.

    Dherbs.com: Good for you!

    Now I'm pregnant and read that protein develops the babies brain so I started eating meat until I have the baby.

    Dherbs.com: LORD HAVE MERCY!!!! I greatly disagree with this, but it's your choice. I have 3 vegan-vegetarian children. Their mothers didn't eat meat during their pregnancies. You don't have to worry about the development of your baby's brain. The body intelligence has that covered. Meat is not protein unless you eat it raw (but the WHOLE animal must be eaten)!!!

    Is it safe to drink protein shakes to replace the protein instead of eating meat?

    Dherbs.com: You can't get bio-protein from protein shakes. Protein shakes are made from waste products (i.e. radiated soy, whey, etc.). If you really want natural proteon, check out our Bio-Protein we sell. It's 100% all-natural. But remember, protein is in every natural food you eat. How do herbivore animals in the wild get their protein since they don't eat meat???

    Meat for protein is a great conspiracy and propaganda tactic. Read Dherbs articles "PROTEIN PROPAGANDA" and "THE DANGERS OF EATING MEAT."

    Regardless of how you view me, thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: I am a 49 yr. old black female. When I was younger I had severe cystic acne that left me with what the dermatologist calls "ice pick scaring" and enlarged pores. I had 2 full face dermabrasions in my 30s and have been on retina A from then up until now. I have a pretty healthy diet and exercise routine. My Father and a couple of Uncles of mine also had the same type of skin problems, left with the same aftermath. I use French green clay masks which slightly reduce the look of the large pores and a sugar, honey, and lemon scrub (I make it at home) and I use it on my face. I'm not unattractive, but my skin looks rough and dull and pitted on my cheeks and nose. All the doctors talk about scar revision (cutting),laser treatments, chemical peels, and all sorts of invasive surgeries. I don't want to go that route again and I feel bad about the way I look sometimes. Are there ANY suggestions that you can give that will help me?

    A:

    SKIN PROBLEMS ARE UNDERLYING BLOOD PROBLEMS. CLEANSE YOUR BLOOD, GIVE YOUR BODY NUTRITION. STEAM YOUR FACE. KEEP CLAYING YOUR FACE. IMPROVE UPON YOUR DIET GO ALL RAW FOODS OR VEGAN DIET). A GOOD ARTICLE TO READ IS â€SKIN RASH†ON OUR SITE UNDER ARTICLES.

    Q: Hello My name is Mark from Montreal. I have hepatitis C & cirrhosis that I got thru blood transfusions years ago. I take very good care of myself but I?m confused about coffee enemas. I?m seeing a biochemist and he tells me to stay away from coffee enemas. Can you please explain to me the benefits for me in taking coffee enemas? Could they be too strong for me and if not how many times a month should I do it?

    A:

    Coffee enemas are one of the best remedies for any liver disease. You may perform coffee enemies weekly (twice a week) to help your condition. Also, take 3 capsules of our Liver Formula 4 times a day and drink lemon water (water with lemon juice squeezed in it).

    If you really want to accelerate healing, perform our Full Body Cleanse and perform those enemas while doing the cleanse.

    Q: When I use the OZ OIL my outer skin is very soft and subtle. However deep down in the skin I feel very itchy. I have been assuming this is the effect of the oil doing its job. After a few weeks I got the feeling that I should try to loofa off the top layers of skin so the under skin could rejuvenate its self. I suppose I am writing because I want to check to make sure that the deep itching truly is a positive healing process before I purchase another bottle. Also to prompt you for any other ideas you might have to help my condition. It is purely beauty based btw I don't have any skin illness.

    A:

    The itching is a natural side effect that a healing crisis is taking place. Keep using the Oxy Oil at your discretion.

    Q: Can I drink coffee with caffeine while on 21day cleans?

    A: No, you cannot consume any kind of coffee or caffeine while cleansing. One of the main purposes of the cleanse, is to give your body a break from the things it's accustom to receiving; letting your body function on it's own. It's common for people to get proper sleep at night, have energy, but still have a need to consume coffee or some type of caffeine. It's important for your body to produce natural energy. You can consume herbal tea's while cleansing, Green Tea provides the most energy. The Dangers of Drinking Coffee - https://dherbs.com/news/4844/4669/The-Dangers-of-Drinking-Coffee/d,ai.html

    Q: Hey herbalist, so I have been doing a lot of research on caffeine, and the benefits and harms of it. I am looking for some added information about the differences between the caffeine found naturally in coffee or tea, and the kind found in pure caffeine pills. I have heard that the pills are much more harmful, but have not been able to find proof of why. With the exception of "its made in a lab, therefore it must be worse". If you could shed some light on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it! Just one more question. I have read that caffeine blocks the re-uptake of glutamate. This can cause glutamate toxicity (resulting in dead brain cells), but I am skeptical as to how often this occurs. Will that happen if one takes just 200-mg of caffeine? Is it for the chronic caffeine users who drink 6 cups of coffee a day for 10 years? Thanks so much for your time and effort! looking forward to some knowledge!

    A:

    Nature does not make caffeine or any substance in mono-structured form, including caffeine. Caffeine consumed by itself is harmful (a la caffeine pills -- nature does not produce caffeine pills). Caffeine pills are INORGANIC and thus not absorbed by the body (the cells). Bio-caffeiene from plant sources is ORGANIC and thus absorbable. Organic substances can be absorbed through the cells. Inorganic substances cannot. Inorganic caffeine blocks reuptake of glutamate, and that's another reason why synthetic caffeine is harmful. Organic caffeine does not block reuptake of glutamate.

    Q: I am having really bad dry skin problems. My scalp is very dry and I can pull huge chucks of skin out of my hair. My fore head is peeling and around my nose area is peeled off and has left me with red raw skin around my nose. I wanted to know what should I do to help solve my dry skin problem?

    A:

    Wewould suggest you perform our Full Body Detox. Also, purchase the Full Body Cleanse Companion booklet and perform some of the soaks mentioned in there. The best soak is to soak in 2-3 boxes of sea salt and 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide for about an hour per day. After getting out of the tub, rub our Oxy-Oil over your entire body to help the skin breathe.

    Q: I would like to know if that was you on the Al Sharpton show, Monday morning. The show is called “keeping it realâ€. My second question is, do you have any products that would help melasma. So many black women and men suffer with this [facial] hyperpigmentation. The only product that I know that really helps is hydroquinone that many women use today to lighten [bleach] their skin tones. I do not want to use it for that purpose; I have a beautiful skin tone. I just need to lighten the pigmentation that has changed my complexion. The darken colorations make me look older than what I am. I see a lot us blacks with this problem. It is unfortunate that the only product that seems to alleviate the problem is not safe. By the way, I do use sunscreen, only on my face; I allow the rest of my skin to get some sun for its great vitamin D benefits. Thanks

    A:

    Work on cleansing your blood, as the skin manifests the condition of the blood. Try our Blood & Lymphatic Formula.

    Q: I would like to know, if you have any skin care programs, for women age 50 and over. I am going to try the detox progarm as soon as possible. I truly believe that I am going to be very happy with the results. I am 51 years old, and I want to look and feel my best. I have a lot of belly fat, and that makes me feel uncomfortable, because some people will ask me, if I am pregnant. This seems very strange to me, because my stomach seems to be the main place, where all the fat is building up. I desire to have beauty inside and out. I want to be completely whole. If you have tips for skin care and body care, please let me know. Some people say that I look like I am in my forties, however, if I did not have all of this extra body fat, I could really believe what they are saying.

    A:

    The blood needs to be cleansed in order to enhance your skin and eliminate excess fat.

    We would recommend you perform the Full Body Cleanse which can help improve skin complexion, release weight, and detoxify, purify, rejuvenate, and strengthen the body and all of its eliminative channels.

    We also have a Facial Skin Kit that works to naturally restore the health of skin by helping to remove blemishes, hydrate skin, and even out complexion for resilient skin.

    Q: I recently received bad news that my grandmother has cancer in several areas of her body. I am having a really hard time staying positive and generally dealing with it since I live so far from my family. Being a military family will do that I guess. Anyway since I heard the news I have broken out with 2 sores on my vagina (from ingrown hairs) and it also burns when I urinate and I have even developed cuts around my anus and on my clitoris hood. I have no clue if it's a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) or what. It even hurts when I am just lying in bed. I am starting a lemonade detox today and was hoping for any suggestions that you may have. I have not eaten meat in about two or three months. However I am still addicted to sugar. I hope all my information helps you in helping me discover a cause and solution to my issue.

    A:

    It appears your problem is psycho-somatic in nature. What kind of cancer does your grandmother have? Is it a female reproductive type cancer?

    Q: I just happened to come across your OZ OIL, I was reading the fact that it can heal all skin conditions. What about the skin condition of keratosis pilaris: the condition in which there are little small black spots like moles on the back of your thighs, can this oz oil eliminate this.

    A:

    OZ OIL HELPS to heal all skin conditions. There is plenty one must do for holistic healing, i.e. change of diet, lifestyle, thought process, etc. No special oil is going to heal anything by itself. Read our new article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER"!
