DIY beauty: scrub cellulite away with coffee and coconut

It sounds too delicious to be true, but the power of coffee grinds and coconut oil combine to make one of the cheapest (and best smelling) anti-cellulite treatments on the market. Except ‘the market’ you’ll be shopping at will be of the grocery variety. The Turnberry Isle Hotel and Spa in Miami, a city where cellulite seems to have been banned judging by a stroll down South Beach, has shared their recipe for the cellulite combatting at home scrub. 
Caffeine is a popular ingredient in anti-cellulite creams and the scrub helps activate circulation and remove dead skin cells while living the skin hydrated. This could get messy, so be aware of surfaces that may stain and try to resist the urge to drink the DIY concoction. 
  • 1/2 cup of coffee powder
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (olive oil can be a substitute)


  • Mix the coffee powder and oil in a bowl. Use hands to massage mixture onto body in a circular motion.
