5- As an optional step, if you wish to add dried orange peel that is ground and filtered, you can add 1/2 teaspoon.
6- With a wooden spoon, mix the ingredients well.
7- If you notice that there are larger particles in the mix, grab a handful of the contents and rub them between your palms. Repeat this a few times to ensure that the mix becomes uniform and homogeneous.
8- Add 1 full teaspoon of pure dark cocoa powder (2.5 grams or 0.088 oz).
9- Mix the ingredients well. Again, rub the contents several times between your palms, to ensure homogeneity.

15- With the wooden spoon, mix all the ingredients thoroughly for a minimum of 3 minutes.

17- Scoop the scrub into a glass container.

Important: Since we didn’t add a preservative, be careful not to introduce any water drops into the scrub when you use it. Water drops might spoil the scrub. If you prefer to add a preservative to the quantity of scrub we have made, mix in 4 grams of phenoxyethanol (0.14 oz).
How To Use: DIY Anti-Cellulite Body Scrub
Using the DIY Anti-Cellulite Body Scrub is a simple and enjoyable process that can be incorporated into your skincare routine. Follow these easy steps for best results:
Step 1: Prep your skin
Start by dampening your skin with warm water. You can use the scrub in the shower or during a bath for added relaxation.
Step 2: Apply the scrub
Take a generous amount of the DIY Anti-Cellulite Body Scrub in your hands and gently massage it onto the target areas where cellulite is present. Use circular motions and apply a bit of pressure to promote better circulation and exfoliation.
Step 3: Focus on problem areas
Pay special attention to areas prone to cellulite, such as thighs, buttocks, and hips. The cinnamon, ginger, and coffee in the scrub work together to stimulate blood flow and may help to reduce the appearance of cellulite over time.
Step 4: Exfoliate gently
Continue massaging the scrub into your skin for about 15 minutes. Avoid harsh scrubbing, as the natural ingredients in the mixture are effective without excessive force.
Step 5: Let it sit
After application, let the scrub sit on your skin for an additional 5 minutes to allow the beneficial properties to be absorbed.
Step 6: Rinse off
Thoroughly rinse off the scrub with warm water, making sure to remove all traces of the mixture from your skin.
Step 7: Pat dry and moisturize
Gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Since exfoliation can leave your skin more receptive to moisture, follow up with your favorite natural moisturizer to lock in hydration.
Step 8: Repeat regularly
For optimal results, use the DIY Anti-Cellulite Body Scrub once a week as part of your skincare routine. Consistency is key to noticing improvements in the appearance and texture of your skin.
Now, you’re all set to enjoy the benefits of this invigorating homemade scrub. Embrace the power of nature and let the blend of cinnamon, ginger, and coffee work wonders to reveal smoother, healthier-looking skin!
