Creams and lotions designed for battling cellulite can be expensive and their results unclear. But do not despair!

This recipe for Cellulite Coffee Scrub is perfect if you are staying away from caffeine, but need a little sensory pick-me-up in the morning.
While drinking coffee can deplete our tissues of fluid, applying coffee topically can actually help fight cellulite. Coffee can tone tissues, and also help with the toxin buildup which is one cause of cellulite.
Applied to the skin, caffeine works on cellulite by improving circulation in the affected area. Gather around a quarter or half a bowl of coffee grounds. Add about two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and mix the two ingredients. Take a sponge bath and massage your old coffee and hot oil in a circular motion on the affected areas or throughout the body. Insist on thighs and buttocks areas. Leave as much zat on the affected areas. Use plastic wrap to wrap tightly around composition as areas affected by cellulite. After you left on for about 10 minutes, remove the foil and rinse with warm water.
