We are in the throes of winter and that means that we layer more clothes and may tend to neglect steps to keep our skin it’s glowing best. For best summer skin, exfoliation and moisturizing are essential for glorious skin. Well, when you take it all off, don’t you want the same silky soft skin you were showing off last summer? Of course you do.
It can be prohibitive using a luxe body scrub on a daily basis, so why not save your precious body exfoliatior for a special occasion, and instead “cook up” one in your kitchen that’s just as effective and delicious.
Indie Lee, founder of the all-natural skincare line Indie Lee & Co, shares one of her at-home recipes for an all-natural scrub containing her favorite ingredient: coffee. The caffeine works to dehydrate fat cells and when broken down, acts as a natural exfoliant. The upside? The caffeine helps reduce the appearance of cellulite!

About Indie Lee
Indie Lee is a natural ingredients advocate, who has devoted her life to educating consumers on the dangerous contaminants that consume our lives. Following her recovery from a life-threatening brain tumor, likely caused by environmental toxins in food products and cleaning and skin care products, Indie left her corporate suits and lifestyle behind to re-dedicate her life to educating consumers on the hidden dangers of chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products. She took it upon herself to provide a healthy, non-toxic alternative. From this notion, Indie Lee & Co. was born.
Indie Lee & Co. was founded on the principle that women everywhere deserve to have access to a luxurious, all-natural alternative to the artificial, chemically-laden products on the market today.
