    Coffee has antioxidants and caffeine which, once applied on to the skin, would dilate the blood vessels and tighten the tissues. Olive oil provides the added moisture while scrubbing.

    When you're in the shower, start by using a dry brush in circular motions around the affected area. This would promote blood circulation.

    Then, using your hands, apply the scrub on to the areas and gently scrub, preferably in circular motions.
