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!

What You’ll Need:

-1/2 cup coconut oil (We like Dr. Bronner’s Magic All-One Organic Virgin Coconut Oil)

-1/4 – 1/2 cup freshly ground coffee beans depending on how much you want to exfoliate (you can use your leftover morning grounds)

-Ice cube tray or mini muffin tin (regular size muffin tin will work)

 

Directions:

1. Microwave your coconut oil briefly to soften

2. Combine coffee grounds and coconut oil, stir well

3. Pour mixture into ice cube tray or muffin tin

4. Place in the freezer until cubes are hardened

5. Pop your cubes out and store in an airtight container in the fridge/freezer

6. Several hours before using, take a cube out and let it soften to room temperature

CelebrityReese Witherspoon Covers Vogue October

Vogue’s October cover is like music to our ears (and eyes). A bright-eyed and fresh-faced Reese Witherspoon graces the cover with a classic look to admire. The actress is promoting her new movie Wild, in which a woman takes herself on a journey across the Pacific Crest Trail, and, all on her own, finds strength and healing in the face of the obstacles she faces. Vogue does a fantastic job of capturing Reese’s natural beauty, placing her in scenes from yesteryear. Her graceful finger-waved tresses, simple and elegant dress silhouettes, and fierce expressions make this editorial simply breathtaking. We can’t wait to see Reese own the big screen once again!
