The natural caffeine in the coffee used in this recipe boosts circulation and works to effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite. Oranges stimulate new cell production, promoting increased collagen levels, encouraging firm skin. Enjoy this fresh and flirty orange-infused coffee scrub; an aromatic combination that benefits your mind, body, and spirit.

SKINCARE SECRETS

Body scrubs are designed to exfoliate away dead skin cells and leave nourishing scented oils on your skin. For maximum benefit, do not use soap to wash off these residual oils. Towel off and the nutrients in the botanical oils will greatly benefit your skin, soaking in after a few minutes.
