Coffee scrub

I love my morning cup of coffee. I use freshly ground beans every single time. Nothing goes to waste because I use the grounds to make my own coffee scrub.  Did you know that caffeine from used coffee grounds are great for exfoliation and improves circulation?  Some claim it temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite because when caffeine comes in contact with your skin it supposedly helps redistribute fat cells and decrease the formation of more cellulite.  As for me, whenever i use this scrub it leaves me with a smooth, glowing skin and enhances my tan.  Not to mention it smells awesome!  My recipe is very simple.  I use one cup of ground coffee, 2 Tbsp of Olive oil, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and a tablespoon of vanilla extract. Once you have tried this you won't go back to buying those expensive scrubs again.
