Natural DIY treatments are becoming more popular to take good care of your skin. Check out how you can make a coconut oil mixture to put an end to your cellulite in a really short time.
Summertime is the nightmare of many women all around the world.
That time of the year where fashionistas and the weather are telling us to wear shorter clothes. Worrying about cellulite makes this even harder than it already is.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way.
You do not even need to sign up for a gym membership or buy dozens of expensive products. You can treat your cellulite at your own house with organic coconut oil and just a couple of common ingredients.
The Magic of Coconut Oil
I remember when I first heard about using coconut oil. It was a really weird idea for me. I won’t even consider to use it for cooking as I was picturing the taste of coconut in all my dishes.
After doing a little more research I was amazed to find about all the health benefits that coconut oil has to offer to your body. I was still skeptical, I won’t lie to you.
Two weeks later I decided that I would never go back.
Of course, it is a little bit more expensive than using olive oil as I was used to but it is worth the extra bucks! I couldn’t believe how good I was feeling with my health and the best part:
I had not changed my diet at all.
I was enjoying the same meals but they were equally delicious and way healthier.
Then I read that you can use coconut oil for a lot of different things. It is the perfect ingredient for skin-care treatments you can make at home that really work.
I tried a couple of different combinations and I was getting some results but the truth is that I wanted even faster progress. That is why I kept looking for more.
A few weeks later I found the recipe for the perfect body scrub. One that anyone can do themselves at home. And today, I’m going to share that recipe with you.
How to Use Coconut Oil for Skin Care
This is a recipe that combines two of the things that I love the most when it comes to homemade remedies: using 100% natural products and soothing and delicious smell.
Here is the list of ingredients you need for this cellulite buster recipe:
- Coconut oil (Island Fresh is my favorite brand).
- Coffee grounds (you can use your leftovers from the morning).
- Grounded cinnamon.
- Brown sugar.
As you probably have guessed, this recipe will give you, as a result, an amazing body scrub. You are going to mix in a bowl 1/2 cup of coffee grounds, 1/2 cup of coconut oil, 1 tbsp of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
Make sure of mix everything together until you get a consistency of wet sand.
These amounts of ingredients are enough for a week or even 10 days of treatment. Just grab a handful and rub it on your legs, butt or even your face and massage for 30 seconds in a circular motion.
I like to keep it in the fridge so it lasts longer and for me, it is just delicious to feel the scrub right after a warm shower at night. But notice that none of these ingredients require refrigeration in order to stay fresh so you can leave it out if you prefer it that way.
I hope you can enjoy the benefits of this coconut oil as much as I have. I wish you the best of luck and send you a big hug!
