Caffeine Addiction at its  best: reduce the appearance of cellulite and exfoliate naturally with this Coconut Oil Java Scrub.   Unfortunately, it’s impossible to remove cellulite completely, however, there are things we can do to reduce its appearance. Indie Lee, founder of the all-natural skincare line Indie Lee & Co, shares one of her at-home recipes for an all-natural scrub containing her favorite ingredient: coffee. The caffeine works to dehydrate fat cells and when broken down, acts as a natural exfoliant, so use caffeinated coffee grounds.

    Well I don’t know about cellulite reduction but I do know that putting my coffee grounds into my scrubs has been GREAT. I use some in the garden and some on my feet and legs, so no waste at all now.
