This super-easy-to-make chocolate and coffee body scrub will smooth your skin and kickstart your lymphatic system. The delicious ingredients are also the perfect combination for glowing, healthy skin: Coffee is renowned for its ability to help stimulate congested areas on the thighs and buttocks and cocoa is rich in skin protective anti-oxidants as well as magnesium which is helpful for rejuvenating skin tissue. The coconut oil will make your skin glow while also giving it a good dose of moisturising fatty acids plus lauric acid which is anti-bactertial and anti-fungal. Enjoy!
