No, drinking coffee won’t help defeat your cellulite. But if you mix some cheap hand lotion with warm caffeinated coffee grinds you’ll have an anti-cellulite homemade recipe at your fingertips. You can also mix the warm coffee grounds with olive oil or some other type of lotion that makes it easier to apply on your skin.
Just thinking about cellulite and coffee seems odd but there is proof that the caffeine in coffee does suppress cellulite activity. Caffeine is known to increase blood flow and cellulite is a form of fat that builds up on your body because of the lack of blood flow. So, when you apply caffeinated coffee mixed with hand cream on your cellulite you will improve the vascularization (the formation of blood vessels) of these areas, allowing easier cellulite breakdown and the removal of toxins. This is the reason why many cellulite creams contain caffeine.
You don’t have to go out and buy the most expensive gourmet coffee on the market. You can use a regular brand of coffee – just make certain that it is caffeinated.
Mix warm coffee grounds with a cheap hand cream. Apply this mixture to the areas that have cellulite -- you can use your hands or a loofah mitt. Wrap the area in plastic wrap, or if you can find it, seaweed, until you have it completely covered. To intensify the treatment, take an old-fashioned rolling pin and roll the area to further smooth out the cellulite.
Once you have done this leave the areas wrapped for several minutes. When you are finished unwrap the plastic wrap or seaweed and thoroughly rinse the area. You can do this in a warm shower since in can get a bit messy.
Applying coffee grounds to your cellulite may not be the most elaborate or expensive treatment on the market, but for many people this treatment really works. You should apply this mixture to your cellulite once a day until you see a difference. You can continue as long as you feel comfortable.
