Sister & Co. beauty: Coffee and oatmeal toning body scrub

 

 Use this scrub and see and feel the difference!

Adding caffeine to skincare products can dehydrate fatty cells, resulting in water disappearing from the surface of your skin and minimising the appearance of cellulite. Not only will this scrub target cellulite - the coffee grounds will lessen the appearance of skin imperfections like stretch marks, varicose veins and psoriasis. Caffeine also constricts blood vessels to reduce redness, making this scrub an ideal treatment for acne.

The silky sweet almond oil will moisturise and tone your skin, the brown sugar and oatmeal will gently but thoroughly exfoliate and the vitamin E and lauric acid in coconut oil will hydrate and soothe. Sweet orange essential oil will make it, and you, smell amazing! 

All you need:

50g ground organic coffee 
25g oatmeal (we love Rude Health Organic Oatmeal)
2 tbsp brown sugar 
3 tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil 
1 tbsp sweet almond oil (readily available at health food shops)
10 drops sweet orange essential oil 

 

All you need to do:

Simply blend all the ingredients together in a food processor for about 15-20 seconds until a grainy paste is formed. Transfer to a small container/jar (naturallythinking.com has a great selection) and use in the shower. It's messy so take care- but so worth it!
