Scrub-a-Dub-Dub Your Way to Smooth, Cellulite Free Skin
With swimsuit season in session year-round in Hawaii, Amanda Schmiege, Director of Spa at Naupaka Spa & Wellness Center at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, is sharing her insider beauty secrets to achieving smooth, swimsuit-ready skin, all the while combating cellulite with a special DIY homemade recipe. Using three simple ingredients readily found in the pantry – coffee, coconut oil and sea salt - your skin will be saying aloha in no time with Naupaka Spa’s signature coffee scrub.
“At Naupaka Spa we focus on transformative experiences to become whole, anchored by ancient healing traditions and practices,” notes Amanda. “This coffee scrub combines the ultimate trifecta of powerful antioxidants to promote good health, heal from the inside out, and the best part - create an easy-to-follow ritual at home using everyday ingredients.”
Rich in antioxidants, the caffeine helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite and also exfoliates the skin. The nourishing scrub stimulates blood flow, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.
Here’s what you will need:
Coffee Scrub Ingredients and Method
- 1 cup of coffee grounds
- 6 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 tbsp of sea salt or sugar
- Waterproof jar or container
Mix together 1 cup of fresh coffee grounds, 6 tbsp coconut oil, and 3 tbsp of sea salt in a bowl, until well combined.
In the shower, gently rub the coffee scrub over your body in a circular motion and leave on for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly with a washcloth.
For best results, recommend using 1-2 times per week. Rinse shower thoroughly and remove excess coconut oil residue.
