Everyone knows getting older in what we do. How we age is a choice we make as individuals.
About a year ago I decided to do a spring cleaning on my diet getting rid of all the junk, (sugar, carbs, processed food) as I could. I also do not eat red meat or pork, and when I do eat chicken or fish I eat organic when it is there. The change that came after was a Much Healthier BODY, a clearer mindset, including very little (if any) headaches, no cramps during my periods, A lot more energy and no or very little crazy mood swings. My husband can verify that for me.:)
It also came with some sagging skin on my neck, Torso, legs, and arms, not a lot but enough for me to notice, it is just part of the territory that comes with the aging process you can't stop it. But when you add weight loss to the aging equation, well you get my drift.
So I did a little research on some natural skin tightening for the body /face. Coffee scrubs were the #1 out there. I decided to create my own and try it to see if the hype was all it was cracked up to be. Needless to say if I did not absolutely love what I made I would not be typing this right now.
I have used this coffee scrub for about 6 weeks now and although it has not made me look like I am 20 again it has made enough of a difference that I will never go without it.
Not only does if smell amazing, it is really good for your skin and slows down the aging process. Here is why
- Coffee is a natural stimulant firming skin and reducing the signs of cellulite. HERE
- Coffee is a great exfoliate HERE
- Coconut oil HERE it also stimulates collagen HERE
- Cinnamon benefits HERE
- Sugar benefits HERE
This is the one I came up with and you can add and take away whatever you like.
For instance, I read where you can add cayenne pepper to you body scrub for more cellulite relief.
I have not done that yet but if I do I will let you know.
The best part is that it is not expensive, you know what is in it and you can make it yourself.
Things you need.
1 cup of ground coffee * I did not have any organic coffee, but if you have it I would use that.
2 tsp of organic ground cinnomon
1/4 cup of organic cane sugar
Dash of lemon juice.
All of these ingredients I found at my local Publix
or if you don't have a Publix your local Grocery store should have them.
Mix the cinnamon and the coffee together in a bowl.
Slowly add the oil to your coffee and cinnamon, stir as you go.
add your sugar,
mix well with a spoon.
I store mine in a container like this, it was what my coconut oil was in
and it is perfect for the bathroom because it is resealable and its plastic.
I made these cute little jars to put my scrub in.
Things you need.
- Little jars I found at Wal-mart.
Paint the lid with some glue * just in the very center.
Sprinkle with glitter let dry about 3 -4 hours,
and that is it.
Cute little jars of Happy.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
If you try this let me know what you think I would love your feedback.
Lots of <3
