Coffee beans can be used to improve your skin tone, since caffeine helps stimulate circulation.

Caffeine promotes circulation and can be helpful for treating cellulite. Besides sloughing off dead skin cells, the massaging action of this scrub will help boost circulation. Regular use, in combination with exercise and a healthy diet, should yield improvement in a few weeks.

• 1 cup fresh coffee grounds, cooled
• 1⁄2 cup raw sugar
• 1⁄2 cup coarse sea salt
• 1⁄2 cup light oil, such as vegetable or sunflower oil

1. Mix together all ingredients and pour into a clean container.

2. To use: Massage into clean skin in a circular motion, focusing on your upper thighs, where cellulite is most common. Massage your legs using strong, flowing strokes for at least 5 minutes to boost circulation.
