Can a simple coffee scrub help get rid of cellulite, those irritating dents, and dimples on your skin, especially on the arms, thighs, and tummy? The Firming Arabic Coffee scrub ritual at the Shangri-La Dubai says it can!
The firming Arabic coffee scrub ritual combined with dry body brushing does wonders for the skin. The extra time spent on dry body brushing is certainly worth the investment! We all know that the skin is the largest organ in our body and plays a great role in detoxification. Dry brushing on the surface of the skin helps breakdown unwanted toxins, increasing circulation, reducing the appearance of cellulite. It helps clear clogged pores, remove the dead skin, helping in cell renewal resulting in bright, smooth, even-toned skin. The most important advantage of this technique, if done the right way, as explained by the well-informed therapist May, is that it aids in improving vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The lymph nodes, as she explained are like the drainage system of the body and if they are blocked, it creates an accumulation of unwanted toxins. Dry brushing helps clear those blockages, resulting in the release of toxins. Dry brushing also helps in stimulating the nerve endings in the skin resulting in a rejuvenated nervous system leading you to feel fresh and invigorated.
The firming coffee scrub follows a rejuvenating session of dry brushing. The best quality Arabica coffee beans are freshly ground with a mixture of coarse salt and sugar for that extra exfoliation. Caffeine, as we all know is great for removing cellulite so this scrub comes packed with antioxidants resulting in smooth, firm, skin that feels fresh. We all know the boost that a fresh cup of coffee gives us for a great start to the day; similarly, a coffee scrub has immense benefits she says. These include exfoliating and anti-inflammatory properties, temporary reduction of cellulite, improved circulation, reduced eye puffiness, and smooth skin. Caffeine is loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines. The Arabica Coffee Seeds used in this scrub are high in fatty acids, leaving skin soft and smooth.
The scrub leaves the skin feeling invigorated and a shower after this leaves your skin feeling tingling fresh. This is followed by a gentle massage of replenishing shea and fig butter cream that provides the much-needed softness to the skin. The powerful blend of these rich butters helps in softening, nourishing, and moisturizing the skin.
