When it comes to body scrubs, there are plenty in the skincare market. However, not all of them are made to fight cellulite and stretch marks of a woman’s body. In fact, natural, organic ingredients are more effective at getting rid of cellulite than drug-store creams and lotions.
For this reason, we’ve laid out 3 very special, super-invigorating DIY body scrubs to give your sagging skin a lift and get rid of cellulite.
1. Grapefruit and Rosemary Essential Oil
This beautiful, fleshy fruit has a chock full of anti-oxidants and vitamin C and penetrates deeper into your skin than any lotion. The rosemary essential oil has incredible detoxifying properties that increase blood circulation and reduces cellulite.
1 Whole Grapefruit (Juiced with Pulp)
1 tsp Rosemary Essential Oil
1 tsp Gram Flour
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and allow it to sit for a while. After dry brushing your body and a brief warm shower, apply the grapefruit scrub gently and wash after 10 minutes.
2. Dried Coffee and Pure Coconut Oil
There’s nothing like a good ol’ coffee scrub for cellulite and stretch marks. Cellulite is essentially lumpy and dimpled skin, which can make your figure appear flabby and unsightly. The intensely rich amount of caffeine and anti-oxidants in coffee dilates blood vessels to smooth out the cellulite marks on your body.
¼ Cup Dried Instant Coffee
½ Cup Pure Virgin Coconut Oil
2 Tsp of Brown Sugar
Simply mix all the ingredients nicely and warm them up to activate the caffeine in the coffee. Apply the scrub on the problems areas in a circular motion after a warm shower. Leave for 15 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
3. Oatmeal, Cucumber, and Yogurt
This is an intensely hydrating body scrub, which targets areas of cellulite by delivering deep moisture. The hydration of cucumbers and yogurt and the scrubbing qualities of oatmeal make a wonderful cellulite-fighting scrub.
2 Cups Oatmeal
1 Cucumber (Juiced)
3 Tbsp Yogurt
After blending all the ingredients, apply the mixture gently on the problem areas before showering. Leave for 15 minutes and rinse. Use this once a week for visible results.
