Looking for a way to reduce your cellulite? One home remedy that women swear by is the use of coffee grounds to remove or reduce the look of cellulite on the body. There are thousands of women who swear that this well-known home remedy is successful and works.
The main reason why you will find a lot of women trying coffee grounds to reduce cellulite is the fact that coffee is an active ingredient in many, if not most, anti-cellulite creams. These anti-cellulite creams are promoted as being able to smooth, firm and tighten your skin to the point that it diminishes the appearance of unsightly cellulite. So if you are to take an educated guess, there is a good possibility that directly applying coffee grounds could have the same topical effect on the skin as the creams.
Another way to look at the coffee grounds as a cellulite treatment is that it could also be used to exfoliate the skin. The coarse nature of the substance helps to agitate and arouse the skin cells. It will also remove the dead skin and reduce the size of your pores. When exfoliating, the coffee grounds used will help to firm and tone your skin and with that the overall look of cellulite on the body (in theory).
