With two stretch mark and cellulite-fighting ingredients, the powerful combination of coconut oil and coffee grounds is great for your skin and smells heavenly, too! Coffee is not only packed with antioxidants making it anti-aging and detoxifying, it is a natural astringent that (temporarily) makes your skin tighter and firmer. Coconut oil is one of our favorite beauty products because of its many amazing benefits (read more about it here) and has tons of Vitamin E, which is the ultimate anti-aging vitamin. It is a great moisturizer that delays wrinkles and sagging, plus its antibacterial properties help prevent breakouts!
